I mentioned this on another thread. Why not use multiple streamers to alleviate the issues. From a family aspect, your going to need more than boxee if you really want access to everything cable gives you. AppleTV is the only way to legally obtain Disney programming. My wife uses Roku for Hulu and AoD, and I use boxee to watch history/spike/fx shows. Even purchasing all three streamers I only spent 370, less then I was spending for 3 months of directv service. The equipment pays for itself quickly.
