Thanks... I still dont get this fortune cookie thing.

From my posts last week - hopefully answers it:

The easter egg will let you access a network services menu and manually configure your ports instead of the receiver using UPnP with your router. The second thing, it adds a daily fortune to your menu, similar to those in fortune cookies. The first part being a good add-in that some may need, the swcond part is unnecessary, and hopefully didn't take long to code.

The network services would let you assign ports for the upcoming media-share software that will allow you to view programs on a computer. It is just starting beta-testing right now.

This way, you can configure ports if you do not use UPnP.

Lots of guessing of what it's real purpose will be, right now guessing that they just want to see how hard/easy it is to get the network services working on folks boxes/networks.
