Let me preface this by saying I am indeed a fan of Boxee, although by the end of this post it is not going to sound like that.
As soon as money enters the picture the software needs to have some level of polish, and quite frankly the amount of bugs and glitches in boxee box is astounding.
This shares disconnecting issue is absolutely ridiculous. The primary reason I bought this box was for local content, and up until now it has worked (almost) perfectly for it. This needs to be fixed immediately. Users should not have to wade through pages of technical posts to "fix" this themselves, it should just *work*. Samba shares are nothing new, and all of my computers/devices can see each other and have never seemed to have a problem. Boxee box, why cant you?
When this was free software I was running on my Apple TV I didn't complain when there was a problem (although, speaking of that, I don't recall having any problems whatsoever with samba shares when I was using that setup), but now I paid over $200 for this buggy piece of shit and it is starting to wear on me.
For the love of god get your shit together boxee, learn how to properly test your software with some of those millions you just received.
