Well to be more precise my goal is to be able to stream music from any service that might pop up *without using my TV*. So the goal is not to use app on my TV as the Android box will be connected to my receiver. If I can operate it "headless", it would be *great*, but that requires a well-thought remote app solution (i.e. which displays enough information to control the app without using the TV itself).

What I really want is to be able to launch, say, SlackerRadio without having to physically connect my tablet to my receiver, but using my expensive home theater. I guess I could upgrade my receiver to one that support AirPlay or the equivalent Android tech but an Android box would allow the same for less money, and a nice way to run XBMC to boot. Note that XBMC can mount a blu-ray ISO and show you the menu if it's ripped on a hard drive somewhere on your network, by the way.

Anybody know when it'll be available? Sometime in April is all I can find, nothing on Samsung's site. I'm hyped for this, can't wait to get my hands on it smile.gif

I have two that I purchased on the "sizzle". So far they are pretty useless since I can't install most apps from the playstore. I know about sideloading and such, but this device should work and it should work well without work-arounds. Does anyone know if Samsung plans to support this thing properly?
