Napster Do the Math Commercial

Did you see the Napster Superbowl commercial? In the Napster commercial they show the cost of 10,000 songs via Napster vs. buying 10,000 songs via iTunes. Since iTunes charges $1 per song for $10,000 total and Napster charges a flat-rate unlimited monthly subscription fee, it's easy to see who "supposedly" wins this Superbowl battle... ITunes fans/iPod fans are in an uproar over this commercial. Anyway, this reminded me of a Napster problem with Windows Media Center Edition 2005. Actually it's a problem with Napster used with a Linksys Media Center Extender - a wireless multimedia extender which I reviewed here. In the comments of my Linksys MCX review, you'll notice that someone posted an issue with Napster and the Linksys MCX, which I pasted below:
 
Looks like there are Napster issues with Linksys Media Center Extender. Nap Anybody have a problem logging into Napster through the extender? Using the remote, I input my user name and password, and click sign-in. It then tells me the "server has timed out, try again". I am able to get into Napster via Media Center on the PC, but not with the extender. Called both napster and linksys, no help.
I too tried getting Napster to work with the Linksys MCX but with no success.  I emailed Linksys and they said they'd look into it, but it's been 3 weeks and counting.  Not holding my breath...
