I recently received my new Boxee an have been happy with it except for two issues. The first is minor and more of an annoyance. The second makes this worthless.
1: the remote has no LED to indicate if you have the caps or function key on while typing passwords. Thankfully you can just use the OSD keyboard.
2: Critical: The Boxee does indeed play mkv and mts files as advertised but what they don't tell you is that you videos will stop and buffer ever 1.5 to 3 minutes during the movie or TV show you are watching.
The Boxee is connected to a wired 1gig network that is accessing multiple shares on large raid arrays 1+tb. The files are anywhere from 1.5GB up to 30+GB.
No other device or computers on the network have any problems steaming any content from these sources. When I watch something on the Boxee I can see that it is not using a large % of network bandwidth so I know it is not my network.
This is such scam, yea it plays 1080P video if you want to watch it in one and a half minute segments.
If anyone knows something I don't to help I would be very happy to hear it.
