So I think I am convinced I am going with a full blown Boxee setup at home. While not perfect (and no software is) I have been more impressed with the ease of use of Boxee than any of the other HTPC front end solutions I have found.
So now on to the questions.
Multiple Boxees. My plan is to have all my desktops (3) plus two dedicated TV Boxees. Do you need a "central" Boxee Box? I did notice that Boxee runs a web server at 8800 but I wasn't sure if that was for any type of data sharing between boxes or if the Boxee boxes "home in" on a central server.
Dedicated TV Boxees. I have been reading up on all the ION boxes, and other boxes out there and can't quite make a decision on what my TV Boxees should be. For instance is the Revo 1600 230 chip powerful enough to push 1080p? I have seen many more write ups for the 3610 330 but if the 1600 is good enough then the sub $200 price is nice. As much as I would love to wait for the Boxee box I don't think I want to wait too much longer.
