I wouldnt say mine has worked flawlessly. There are more hiccups then I would want for a $200 device. In the beginning I recommended this to a ton of people, now I cant recommend it to anyone. There are just issues the average consumer would get flustrated with or confused about. There isnt a clear line over internet content or local. That in itself is flustrating. The netflix app needs work on boxee. Not sure if that is boxes internet connection or the app itself. The reason I say that is weird behavior when wired, There are comments all over the place about speed and this that and the other about the connection.
What I hope to see is some polish on the boxee. 2 things I see coming (very soon) that could kill this brand dead in the water are:
1)apple tv supporting apps. This would make me jump ship in itself. Id just use air video to watch my local content and with all the major channels and Tv.com having apps Id be right where I am with the boxee but with a better easier UI and more more stable.
2) XBMC I havent really gotten into this but Im seeing alot of rumbling coming from this product. its only a matter of time before someone makes hardware like boxee for this interface.
The future holds exciting things hopefully the boxee will be there to enjoy it
