4 Months of Being Patient
What I don't understand is why there hasn't been more made about how this product still doesn't function as advertised after 4 months? They have no business promoting a road trip while many of us are still waiting for fixes. How about promoting the fact that you are still working to make my boxee function. How about putting out incremental fixes every week or so. But of course that isn't particularly fun or sexy....so they decide to hit the road!!!! Unbelievable...
The portion of the software that is supposed to provide their revenue stream doesn't even work most of the time (home screen). Vudu can only do SD on my 20Mb connection, netflix is barely passable, and basic functionality is still missing (or has been broken by upgrading). I used to never have to reboot, now it is necessary 2 or 3 times per day. Used to be I could select local content even if there was a stream available, but no more. Streams are often the only choice for a show that has local files available. The system can't even tell when a new file has been added anymore, let alone put it into the database in a reasonable amount of time.
And of course, I am expected to spend my time posting bugs to their issue tracking system. It appears the only user that has any value to them is the one that works for free helping them fix their software (actually boxee box users pay 200 dollars for that privilege).
Back in the first couple of months, I thought the complaining wasn't warranted but now I see many of those users were right on the money.
If I were them I'd be too embarrassed to organize a road trip. But I tell you right now, if the road trip were to come anywhere near my home, they would regret it. At the very least they'd get my boxee box thrown at them.
Oh, and I would also like to thank D-link for all their help...(right)
I know some of you will think that asking for a product to live up to it's promise is unreasonable...and that might be the saddest part of this whole sham.
Funny thing is, I still hope that it will work someday. (mostly because it is too late to return it LOL)
