Any suggested setup to allow music pass, my rogers cable and renting movies

I know that setting up WMC in canada, you lose internet tv. So I am trying to figure out a setup that will allow my Rogers cable, allow me to rent movies and access zune music pass. I want to stay away from the hacks to setup my STB as US then hack the canadian channels in. Plus I think this way may also conflict with my zune pass which is Canadian. Perhaps the only way is to use the xbox as an extender, then exit out of WMC everytime I want to access those features. Anyone have any ideas.

NextPVR is netflix friendly, Canada friendly but Xbox not so friendly(cuz that's the proprietary BS run by "The Man")

There is a way to do this but it requires a wee bit of hacking. You will set up WinMC and tell it you are in the US. Then you will use pnear's hack in reverse and set up your Rogers cable lineup.

You would think it be easy. I didn't want to go the hack route, just one more thing to break causing an unhappy wife
I think I might also try media portal.
