Sorry guys, but this product just doesn't make my Sony TV and Apple TV worthwhile.
The apple-itunes media play in HD and look great. Also when I transfer anything to itunes from my Macbook Pro to the Apple TV it looks great.
But when I view anything on my Macbook Pro using Boxee or through the Apple TV using Boxee it is choppy and reminds me of watching early quicktime videos over dial-up in 1998.
I appreciate the depth of selection of free tv through Hulu, but the quality is awful. It is worse than VCR quality.
I added some media to Boxee on my Macbook Pro to see if viewing it was different between the Apple TV and the MacBook Pro. It still looked awful. I viewed the same thing on the Macbook Pro by simply clicking on it and quality was great. So the video quality issue is not with hardware or the media, but with Boxee itself.
If this is ever fixed, then I could see the usefulness, but otherwise, I think Apple's solution with itunes beats the hell out of this.
Also, when I've completed an update for Boxee on the Apple TV, why does it continue to show in updates? It should disappear or show in some way that update has been applied.
Anyway, not trying to be too hard on anyone, but when you've invested in a quality HD flatscreen and a quality laptop, why sacrifice all that when watching media?
Anyone else have these issues? Any ideas?
