    .... two of the coolest things I've ever seen on my ATV2. Except that Grooveshark crashes lowtide, and doesn't seem to work right in XBMC. But Icefilms? Amazing.

    Yeah, Grooveshark is all.....wonky in XBMC - which is a shame. I stick to Pandora and now Radiotime which I just added today. Also, Muze is cool for music videos - the playlists are great in Muzu TV; it's like MTV back in the day but with music you like and no commercials. And I like Icefilms ok, but it's my 3rd choice if I can't find what I am looking for in Navi-X or FastpassTV. I don't like not being able to ff/rew in Icefilms or dealing with that 230mb download for artwork that never seems finsih or install correctly (that could just be my issue though). Navi-X is my favorite since it has artwork, descriptions and you can ff/rew. Navi-X is a bit disorganized and the searches don't always work for be but otherwise it's awesome.

    I have Groovy set up through Nito TV as a standalone 'app' and seems to work very well with barely any crashes. Agreed, Icefilms is great but Navi-x is my favorite especially for streaming live UK TV to Canada and watching otherwise hard to find movies. Definitely worth checking out.

    It's not - it's an Add-on for XBMC, like Icefilms. Can't recall the repo it's in off hand but you can find details over at the XBMC forums.

    .... thanks for the tips, I've installed FastpassTV and Navi-X. I take it back. THESE are the coolest things I've ever seen. The amount of content available on these two plugins is, to say the least, almost frightening.
