Ok, just saw the latest announcement on the boxee box and this article on Anandtech regarding blu ray lite support. Will this feature be only on the boxee box or will it soon be added to the beta or final release of the boxee software?
The article also stated that DVD menu support would not be included on the boxee box, so I hope this is not the case for future releases of the boxee software in general.
