I'd like to see an option to run the Server program without being logged on (i.e., run as a Windows service, just like the Beacon does).

Amen. I can't stand the current implementation.

Someone else posted a suggestion to try Galleon (galleon.tv), an open-source media server for TiVo.

It's written in Java, so it's available for many platforms including the Mac.

I'm playing with it on both my XPSP2 desktop and win2k server, each serving different file types to my S3. So far, it's working nicely.

Yes, I use Galleon and its folder implementation is really nice. however, it keeps locking up on me and I have to stop its process and restart it at least once a day.
