I moved on to Mede8er after Boxee Box several months ago and haven't looked back, but one thing Boxee Box did (tried to do) right was ease of use, nice UI, with a decent mix of local and Internet content support. Outside of a HTPC, there hasn't been anything else quite like it... which is why The Little Black Box
intrigued me. Having owned so many media streamers, I don't have high expectations, but could this possible be Boxee Box evolved?
XBMC remains the ultimate front-end jukebox, but how will this box do as far as:
- HD audio w/o dropouts or any hiccups?
- XBMC add-ons, all supported?
- Performance of UI; speed of box itself?
- High bitrate BD rips playing smoothly over wired network?
- How does one update XBMC itself?
- 3D and 2D DVD and BD ISO's supported?Their forum
is awfully quite for a product just launched in the U.S., but I expect to get mine next week and check it out for myself.
