Additional Comments

Really wish this would work. Streaming Hulu to my Xbox 360 would be awesome. Currently I use Twonky Media Server for local and networked video, but as far as streaming video (especially Hulu) it's a no-go. Works great under Win XP (FLP and Tablet Edition) SP3 but I have no intention of booting into a Win partition every time I want to watch some streaming video.
