Controlling Boxee with Nokia 5630

One of the first things I did when I got my new Nokia 5630 was to set up a wireless network at home in order to use it's UPNP features. I quickly gave up on the Nokia Home Media Server because it's too simple and looks horrible.
I then installed Simple Center and Boxee and both showed up on the phone's list of external devices (Boxee required a simple configuration change to enable it to run as a UPNP server).

I love the Boxee interface and use it to play most of my media. But I cannot browse songs and videos using my phone. Videos do not show up and songs do not get updated properly.

So I've ended up using Simple Center and Boxee in tandem. I select media from the Simple Center server and play it via Boxee, all using the phone.
