Just grab yourself one of these HERE and use the modded firmware.
Save yourself a fair bit also!.
sorry but i had one and hated it... modded firmware or not i refuse to buy another one... lol
each to their own
Boxee is still in its box and only spent one night playing GT5 FML
I sincerely hate November, December and January; family this, family that. I just want to play with my toys already!
But on a related note...
Boxee is released for sale tomorrow!! (1st Dec) with resellers apart from Dick Smith and Harvey Norman.
I think I need to fake my own death just so I can get some alone time
huh? u can't buy em yet?
Only from Dick Smith, Officeworks and Harvey Norman; as of tomorrow they will be for sale elsewhere too.
I'm going to make an unboxing and demonstration video tonight for it, check back tomorrow afternoon.
if u could confirm 1080p mkv support i'd be very grateful
I know the software does support it, I have tested this myself. Not sure about the box though, although I would see no reason why it wouldn't.
yeah i know the software does... like i just said above i've been using xbmc and boxee for a long time
its just the hardware i'm concerned about... a 1080p mkv with DTS audio can take a fair amount of power... so hopefully its up to the task
Find me a legal* download of that and I'll test it.
Or at least something that appears legal
The boxee hardware is more than capable of handeling the 1080p mkv content as its using intel's new Atom CE 1400
check out this review HERE @ Anandtech
I know of at least one computer store selling them already, so it doesn't seem like D-Link is taking the retail only approach seriously.
One of the big review sites (Andard/Ars/Bittech/etc.) have a video source pack to try out a bunch of different codecs and video tests. In fact in the Boxee announcement they were using it to show it off. 1080P MKVs aren't a problem.
Im still waiting for local content before I even think of re-installing the boxee software on my htpc, let alone buying a boxee box.
so given they're for sale at more vendors now, anyone know of a Melbourne supplier?
There is ABC iView and playing with my Boxee box last night most of the content on it worked.
Connected to my NAS and it took a few hours to identify the 5TB of media, got all the box art, descriptions and organised everything for me. Lovely.
1080P MKVs work and so do DVD images with menus
CitySoftware have them on their shelves in their retail store.
The D-Link Boxee Box is now in stock at Scorptec!
More info here:
Yea but the big players(netflix and hulu) dont work. And the ABC iView app isnt official, so it is prone to breaking and is really a patchwork fix for it to work now.
While not official it works.
