Will Media Center 2005 see and access other UPnP media servers?

    I have an MCE 2005 PC. I like the fact that it can go into standby mode when
    not recording a show, thereby saving energy. I'll power it up when I want to
    watch a TV show on it or via an extender.

    I want to have my MP3 music available to me any time and not have to wake up
    the MCE PC. So it occured to me that I could put all my MP3s on a USB drive
    and connect it to a Linksys NSLU2 NAS box. Then mod the NSLU2 with
    TwonkyVision's MediaServer software, which turns the NSLU2 into a UPnP media
    server.

    Will my Media Center PC see and be able to access my MP3 files on the UPnP
    media server (i.e., does MCE recognize UPnP servers)?
