WinAmp Remote

Ok, i get it, the Winamp people worked rly hard on this ap., and the idea is great, 'Listen to your music anywhere, zomg!'. I get popups every day asking me to use it, log in, enjoy the wonderfulness that is winamp remote. So i cave. I log in, i create passwords and accounts and secret handshakes.
Then i try and make it work.
I hit help, and it sends me to forums. What is that about? Why isnt there something that says 'click here, then here, then here'? Then i try and log on at my remote machine, and it tells me i cant be signed in 2 places at once.

Wtf. Why so cryptic? Why do you harass me to sign up in 45 ingenious ways, but you dont tell me how to work you properly?

Updated: Alright, i finally got it working, and i have to say, Orb is awesome. When i got my PS3, on first run, it found Orb as a media server and streams many more video formats than the windows server (tho i use the windows server for images).
The tricky thing with it is that you have it running on the host machine, and then access your files from a webpage, which was the bit that tripped me up, i thought that i had to access it through winamp itself. Silly me.
It looks like you can get tv streams and such as well thru orb, but i havent configured that part yet. The newest version of WinAmp will install it for you.

So, my Guitar Hero III for PC still says 'COMING SOON!' in the downloadable content area of the online menu. However, it WAS able to download new ads to assault my eyes with.
Deciding to play, and check if there was any online content, i was greeted with ads for KOODO mobile, which is brand-spanking new, and must have been downloaded in order to appear.

Nice Aspyr. Real nice.
