yes I have some tweaks for it too like a playlist editor and an alarm clock, that I have got from an mce electronics magazine. you can also access musicmatch through it. I personaly use musicmatch (the version that not in MCE) to make my playlist And then I copy and paste the .m3u (playlist) file out of the C:\Program Files\Musicmatch\Musicmatch Jukebox\Playlist\ folder to the my music folder. this will make it easier to access songs (I have 7700 of them on my computer) while I am sitting on my couch watching it through my tv.

use the window's search tool to find .m4a and .m4p and cut and paste them into my music folder. you can also use Iopener to convert your protected Itunes file to unprotected m4a's
