Running Boxee Box firmware: 188.8.131.5235
Back on topic:
Make sure debug mode is set to none, i remember readinfg a dev post in a jira ticket i opened having debug mode will greatly decrease Boxee's performance do to logging services running in the background. Also there was a few days where my wireless bridge crapped out and i was not home, people where still able to use BBox offline with local content (usb) and never complained about it being slow. I think you case is isolated or something weird with you setup. Another thing people don't relies is BBox only scrapes content at boot or when its sitting in the UI. Whenever i reset my BBox to default settings and after adding my sources I leave it alone for a good 2 hours so it can scan and identify all my content, since i started doing this the BBox has never hanged crashed or froze on me. When I first got the BBox i was not doing leting it scan and noticed that it was slow and hard to navigate because every time i was in the UI it was scanning and identifying, you can see where i'm going with this right??
Your in the UI for maybe 5 minutes all other times is either in an app or viewing media so by doing it this way it would take weeks to scan and then of cource if the servers are offline which means more trouble, if you let it scan for a few hours before it would not try to scan if/when servers are offline and maybe is causing the slowness you experience?

Given the recent server issues causing many to be frustrated I would like to resurrect this request.
If this option was available users could have avoided the impacts until the servers were restored.
But either way the reason boxee box failed is because you need someone who is interested in you the enduser, and not screwing you over for something else (as they have done many times so far)
