1) Obviously as has already been stated the app still doesn't automatically re-size and start the video as annoyingly the 0.9 release on the apple tv still does. However I can live with that.
2) More important there is no way that I can see that you can go to a particular place in a video. Last week I watched a film about Tom Petty which was 4 hours long that the BBC had re-shown. I had to watch this in about 3 sittings. The first night I watched it on Boxee. The second night I tried Boxee again but there was no way I could get it to the point I'd left off. I did manage to move the mouse to about an hour in and the sound started but the the video would not sync up. In the end I watched it in 480P via the Wii BBC I player app which is actually very good.
3) You can download certain programmes from the iplayer to your PC. These obviously have DRM protection and will expire in a certain time - normally about 30 days I think. Using either the NetGear EVA8000 orLinksys DMA2200 streamers it's possible to stream to your TV - it would be great if the boxee box could do this. See http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.u...ome_media_hubs. I guess this comes under a new request.

BBC iplayer seeking not supported. Manual seeking doesn't work, going to previous page causes Boxee Box to hang:
Please vote and comment for the seeking aspect.

It's fixed on SP3 RC2 ;-)

I'm on the latest release 220.127.116.1164 and none of these things are fixed.
It doesn't auto-start, doesn't autosize and doesn't allow seeking.
Or are you referring to a later release?
