I know a lot of people come in here and complain about the boxee box because it lacks X. I have pretty much ignored these and given the Boxee team the benefit of the doubt. However I am now starting to get annoyed.
Before I had the Boxee I was using a PS3 to watch movies using ps3mediaserver or Netflix. I thought it was a pain in the butt to use it but now I am wishing I never got rid of my PS3. I figured the Boxee would make it much easier for someone like my wife to use. So far it has been a complete disaster.
The PS3 supports Vudu, Hulu Plus, Netflix and can play movies/tv shows using ps3mediaserver.
Boxee supports vudu and can also play local content or streamed content from your network (it does a better job).
I am not trying to be a troll here but I am seriously about to give up on boxee. I know netflix is about to be released (hopefully) but what about Hulu plus? Do they plan to support Amazon VOD? If so will it take them 6 months to come out with the app.
I also find the majority of TV shows listed on the Boxee don't work properly. I had to teach my wife how to make these shows full screen. That was bad enough, but now how do I explain to her that TV show X has no sound (watch a few episodes of Friends and you will see what I mean), or TV show X messes up audio after the first commercial? She won't even touch the thing anymore because its to "complicated" and "buggy"
Right now the only thing going for the Boxee Box in my household is watching movies that we have on the hard drive and Pandora. Both rarely get used
