And after that is fixed over time when the cache refreshes, you may "lose" apps again when we update them and their signatures, until the cache refreshes again.
Sample of how this works:
You should be aware that when using this sort of service may have significant security ramifications to you, depending on how they implemented it.
Server: 192.168.1.1 my local DNS masq caching DNS results
Non-authoritative answer: Non-auth because it comes from a DNS server other than Boxee's
Address: 22.214.171.124 Our service ingress
> server 126.96.36.199 usvideo.org DNS server
Default server: 188.8.131.52
Server: 184.108.40.206 Missing non-auth. They claim they are SOA
Address: 220.127.116.11 and return IP of their servers
