A simple way to get your Recorded TV on your iOS device

Windows 7 Media Center fans who also own iOS devices can you tell you that there aren't enough easy ways to make the two work together. Luckily there always seem to be some developers willing to fill in the gaps and the Simple TV app is pretty smart. Basically the app watches your Recorded TV folder, transcodes the HD shows and makes them available for download via a web browser, or even better, you can subscribe to an RSS feed right in iTunes and get the latest episodes automatically on your iPhone every time you sync. We haven't tried it ourselves, but apparently the metadata comes over and if you delete a show from your Media Center, the transcoded copy is deleted too. The product is currently in beta and free, but will probably be available for purchase when it goes gold.
