I would like to ask for the ability to control the box via the Ethernet interface.

This should include
- Transport control
- Power on/off
- Selection of file to play

The information should be two-way i.e., the box can be queries a to what is playing, what state it is in (playing, stopped).

This will allow the WDTV Live to be used in home automation scenarios and as a headless box (such as a jukebox) where a custom head-end can be used.

And of course, all of this needs to be documented and made available.

I second that!

Also, I request that the remote functions URLs from the HTML interface be published along with it. While that would seem to go without saying, just to be clear, it would be useful. In fact, simply documenting those would be a great start.
