Hello to everyone

I wanted to ask if are you going to add a service discovery implementation. I think is quite frustrating and not user-friendly insert manually the address of a host and would be interesting to detect it automatically using mDNS/SSDP or whatever.

I've already developed this feature on xbmcremote on my own using Jmdns and it's working, however XBMC doesn't define an mdns service (at least Dharma) so I did the setup on the server using avahi. Do you have any suggestions on how to improve this?

I've had a try on this here. It's using upnp for discovery. I'm interested in seeing other solutions as well of course.
