My first impression: the interface is far away from cool, but with a good contrast. Direct access to folders and volumes is a good idea, and DVDs and EyeTV movies are displayed as movies (and not as folders). But if I select a EyeTV movies, then EyeTV is started and it gets bumpy. Same for iTunes (AppStore) movies, but I guess this is the only way. What I really dislike is the metadata display: for DVDs I only see a cover (after some time) and no description. Finally: it is a suitable substitute for Front Row, even if I miss its interface.
