Myth does internet radio just fine; in fact that's one of the things I really 
enjoy... tune in to a nice relaxing classical, downtempo, chillout or light 
jazz station and sit down with a glass of wine with the wife after the kids 
are in bed, or tune in to some good bluegrass or country for a big breakfast 
on weekend mornings... having a separate receiver and turning off the TV is 
*awesome*.

I'm not so sure that Myth does a passable job at internet videos (youtube 
etc.) -- I currently torrent and have a half-assed script in writing which 
automatically adds the completed torrent to myth's recordings, but it's very 
hackish.
