Long time fan of the Boxee project (I was quite excited when I saw the first Boxee Box on display at a Best Buy some months ago).
One of the things that I have loved about Boxee is how stable it has been for me up until this point!
I have three home brew Boxee instances, two running Ubuntu and the latest .deb package and one running Fedora 14 built from source.
Three or four weeks ago, all three bombed out. I was working out of town, but my girlfriend let me know that it was down.
With (admittedly) limited troubleshooting I have found that Boxee will start in 'Off-Line' mode (not allowed to sign my profile in over the Internet) but if I launch any of the three instances while they are connected to the internet they crash and burn immediately after the login process.
I have removed the UserData dir on the machines and even went so far as to remove and re-install the .deb package on one of the Ubuntu machines but no luck. Here is an excerpt from the /tmp/<user>-boxee.log:
I thought I would be smart and remove the weather applet from my profile (and even moved the weather.rar out of the app tree) but no luck.

My next thought was that perhaps there was an API change that effected the login process (noticed there was some Facebook integration going on) so I modified my firewall that was previously blocking most/all of Facebook's IP range, but no luck there either.
At this point I'm at a loss and I miss my Boxee
I can PM or post additional info if needed and any help would be greatly appreciated!
