I'm having issues with my hard drive randomly disconnecting and reconnecting with this version. Anyone else having this issue?

That happens to me as well---first update that I've noticed that's done that. I downgraded to 1.2 and then forgot to turn it off the "right" way and then it auto re-upgraded (argg), of course it forgot all the settings (like wifi network, password, samba username, password). Now I'm back up with the latest for now---what a pain. I don't know how non-engineer/techies would keep this thing working.

Agree, it has been quite some time now and still dreading these Audio dropouts via HDMI which on larger files seem to be more frequent which after some time can become annoying.

Anybody got any approx time frame to when the next release might be? Any admins/dev folk out there who knows?

I really hope that the next firmware will be able to reproduce my family videos (play next file automatically), and hopefully it will also have an option to display EXIF information during a photo slideshow (or at least the photo filename and date/time). My old (and now gone) TViX 6500A already had these capabilities back in 2008.

BTW, I am from Brazil, and despite the fact I do not use Netflix, D-Link had announced that BoxeeBox would support our Netflix until the end of last year, and so far nothing. There are a bunch of people around here that are p....ed off with Boxee and D-Link due to the lack of support to Netflix here in Brazil. I have a strong suspicion that the Netflix support here is somehow related to the new Intel SDK, that I am getting afraid that it might never see the light of the day.

I can understand see why there is a delay in updating the firmware for boxee, however this makes me very disappointed with Intel for whatever reason they have in such huge delays to issue any no matter how small the fix.
Meaning, HD Audio dropouts to me would be considered a functional part of the experience and why cant Intel just issue even a small patch to Boxee so we can have that part sorted out??? Or even if they had the 3TB fixed, why not just issue a patch for that bug?? and so on etc!
Even the CEO Avner Roner has said the biggest issue complained about is the HD Audio so screw you Intel.
It makes me want to boycott Intel and Intel chipsets, cpu's, or whatever.
Tell 10 people to also tell 10 people etc etc that Intel does not support its own sh#t.
This to me has gone on long enough and as a consumer, is not good enough. Boxee should not play hostage to Intel but it seems Boxee has no choice in the matter.
Or maybe its just time to move on, or migrate to another unit.
Each of us has our own preferences to what use we get out of our boxee's however I primarily play movies and prefer using the cover art / genre filtering to play my movies and its great that this automatically displays from the web, however I hear now the WDTV Live (2012) also does this, but in all honesty I would rather prefer to see this Boxee HD Audio dropout issue get solved either by Boxee or the Mega dicks at intel~!

I wonder when we'll hear about the next update. It'll be 3 months since the last update in a few days. Boxee tries to update every 3 months so if we're going to see anything it should be in the next week or so. Something official would be nice. Hell at this point an Alpha release is probably better than the last update.

But how about the removal of custom ratio zoom?

And a better photo slideshow, as well a decent music player?
All above items are Boxee's fault, not Intel.
Personally my receiver is 5.1, and I am not a Netflix subscriber. So it means that, at least in my case, I can only complain about Boxee (in)competence in releasing a player without such basic features I listed above, and to make things worse, Boxee *removed* features that were working in the original product (i.e. custom ratio zoom).
I am starting to wish that D-Link should break the agreement with Boxee, and so D-Link could open BoxeeBox so we could install XBMC on it.
On the other hand, the new GUI that version 1.5 introduced was a good thing, and Boxee's media library is still one of the best I've used so far.
So perhaps the major frustration with Boxee is that it has (had?) the potential to be the perfect player, but due to the lack of some basic features and the inability of Boxee of adding such basic stuff, Boxee is failing in fulfilling its potential (of being "the perfect player").

Boxee is too busy creating and working on other things, then trying to fix and update Boxee box.
