Default AC Ryan Prepping UI Update for Playon!HD Models

Over the course of the past couple of months, we've taken a look at a fair number of set-top media players, including two similar models from AC Ryan, called the Playon!HD. I took a look at the "mini" variant in September, while Brett took the non-mini for a spin just a couple of weeks ago. Overall, our sentiments weren't too far apart from one another, and one thing we both agreed on was that the device could really use a graphical overhaul.

This is a very slick looking interface. My only concern is performance. There seems to be a lot of pretties on the screens they provided and my hopes are that the interface doesn't become sluggish as a result.

I'm anxious to hear your thoughts on this once the new firmware/UI goes GA.
