I did a quick search but couldn't find anything.

Looking to purchase a new media player, but want something with a nice UI and easy to setup jukebox for my music and TV Shows.

What should I consider?

Music....good luck there isn't one that has managed to perform well. I do know that Mede8er has their own music jukebox. However, it isn't perfect. TV Shows, I like Zappiti, which is proprietary of the Dune only. I also like the YAMJ / Eversion TV Show jukebox, which is use for the PCH media players.

the A400 coming out has improved tv show support as well as music support in NMJ, But have never really messed with it so cant give a full account on how well it works. I know initial scan can take 24+ hours though to build the music jukebox. But with the ipad/android controller it might make for a good solution without having to turn tv on if you connect to a avr or something.

What do you consider a "nice UI" for a music player? Will you be playing any high def audio? any multichannel audio or just stereo?

I guess I would class YAMJ movie wall as the nicest looking . But would love something similar for music.

Not straight off. But eventually will play HD Audio. All my music is in FLAC at present
