External Content Access w/o media manager and Ethernet Bridge

1. A while back you had said that youtube functionality would be arriving without the need for the media manager software. Could this be extened to make the STB a full DLNA client? (supporting a variety of video and audio codecs like h.264, MP3, and FLAC) 

2. This probably would require some firmware work by motorola, but would it be possible to bridge the ethernet port to the MoCA LAN interface so that the STB could act as a MoCA extender? This would be a killer (and very marketable) feature for FiOS, having the full reliabitlity of a wired network connection in every room with a TV. ie connect a PC out of wireless range

DLNA client for the boxes is definitely on the roadmap for both Motorola and Cisco boxes.

But next step is simply to enable the boxes to natively decode MP3 and h.264 so we can get Media Manager out of the middle.  This would be the first step to our question of more open access through DLNA... but to start only work with You Tube, iHeart Radio type of content.

Cool. Yep get Media Manager out of the middle. Say like Use Windows Native Grean Button features?

Stream from Media Center to include DVD and other content other available Media Manager Content?

Would be nice.
