I just had a look at it, and it looks like a firefox bug actually... the web
site uses a xmlhttprequest in javascript to download some xml which defines
the media (among other things) to load. And then firefox sends a OPTIONS
request to the server instead of a GET request - and the server answers the
OPTIONS request with a 501 (not implemented) response instead of the xml

In any case, if I spoof my user agent to Firefox/Mac, I get the 2.0 player
which works (rai.tv uses a Silverlight 1.0 player for linux, and a
Silverlight 2.0 player for mac/windows). I assume rai.tv will start serving
the 2.0 player to linux too once Moonlight 2.0 is out.
