Default WD TV Live HD, Now with Windows 7 Compatibility

http://www.ehomeupgrade.com/2010/05...-functionality/

"Microsoft has blessed Western Digital’s HD network media player with Windows 7 compatibility. So, in addition to being a perfectly capable UPnP client, WD TV Live HD now supports Play To functionality directly from Windows Media Player 12. In other words, just about any media file accessible by Windows Media Player can be zapped to the device for instant playback. A good thing since it saves you from navigating through your available network folders to track down a shared file you’d like to access using the device’s TV interface and remote."

Anyone know if the Play To function is supported on the 360 yet?  With the recent addition of USB memory support, I'm expecting the 360 to be able to do most of these same tricks.  But, at $149, with a smaller, quieter and hopefully more energy efficient form factor, along with built in wireless, might make this a nice extender for other rooms in the house.
