That's a good question. One thing for certain is that XBMCdb.com is designed to only display results from one music + video database at a time. We're advertising Eden compatibility only because that's what we've tested exhaustively. That's not to say that Frodo builds won't work - they just haven't been tested. There shouldn't be any mechanism within XBMCdb with the capability of borking your existing installations / databases so feel free to experiment and let us know how it goes!
I took my first look under the hood of the nightly builds this evening, and it appears that SQL table handling will require a minor/moderate amount of re-write and Frodo thumbnails/fanart are being handled in a different manner than Eden. It doesn't seem like there will be any showstoppers for Frodo compatibility development when the time comes; however, XBMC development is much too fluid right now to begin committing changes to accommodate pre-alpha builds. For now, we will continue to advertise as being compatible with Eden installations and we will start the change/migration process alongside Frodo release candidates later this year / early next year.
In other news, XBMCdb has been re-written to load most interactions asynchronously for faster load times. A "watched status" toggle has also been included for video assets. There are a lot of neat features in the works including playlist generation & syncing and a persistent audio player (for those of you with your own servers), Today, I managed to update my XBMC music library with overall playcounts provided by the last.fm API to see my "true" Top 100.
I've opened up the beta registration period to twenty additional users - so if any of this interests you, please sign up, make the connection, and let me know how it's working out for you. I'd love to hear more suggestions for additional features. blog.xbmcdb.com
