Boxee Box Owner's Thread - Reviews, tips, tricks, bugs and feature requests - Page 5

post #121 of 9676
So now the box popped up a message that a required update was required (beyond 1.0.1.x) but I could not select it and was forced to reboot to do anything.

Trying again now...
post #122 of 9676
it just updated to 1.0.1.16125 and i am now seeing an update to 1.0.1.16126 available.
kind of neat how the boxee icon w/refresh arrows shows in the upper right corner telling you an update is available.

edit : waiting on digerati. applying the update first.
post #123 of 9676
I'm really not liking 1.0. Seems like it cut a lot of useful things and made things harder to get to.

Is there no way to change the order your tv shows show up? I can't find a way to have oldest show first, this took a second on the older software.


also, with that 1.0.1.16126 update, mine keeps showing available.. when i install it, it goes back to 125 and shows 126 as available.

So Music and Pictures are still buried in the Files section in 1.0?

For those that have Boxee Box 1.0, please try the following:

1) Apps .. Can we load unofficial apps via repositories like in Boxee PC ?

2) Webkit Browser --- How good is it ? Does it work with Amazon On Demand, Hulu, NBC, Netflix, Email ?

3) Are we still getting TV Shows and Movies in the library from NBC, CBS, SciFi, Hulu, etc?

4) Http Proxy for Canadian users ?
post #127 of 9676
1) Yes

4) Yes

Buried is a little strong, yes, but one level down, under Files. I don't like it either and I know Boxee has already received feedback about it...

Oh c'mon, it's healthy to give the rom a workout! Haha
This is the price we pay as early adopters, nothing new.

No Music is still the forgotten step child. I really hope they can get the whole Music experience going soon.

Try power cycling the Box. If that doesn't work, you may want to try a factory restore (power off, wait 10s, hold the power button for 6-8s. release, wait a bit and then select from the onscreen options). I had video funkiness after one update recently and did a factory restore which helped tremendously.

If that doesn't help, I'm not sure what else to suggest.

A power cycle fixed it! Thanks!

Lol. So close, Boxee. Guess the Neo550 is still my Xmas gift.

BD ISO is working, but frozen when fast forward or chose chapters, had to power off the box to restart

I tried folder structure and it indeeds scrapes it fine, has full chapter support and PGS subs are working, and not staying on the screen, nice..

Problem I am having though now after the updates is constant re-buffering on a movie. I am still scraping my entire library, so I am not sure if that is affecting it or not. Will try once that is completed to be sure.
post #143 of 9676
Hopefully the update prompts have stopped for folks? They have here...

lost video on all content - power cycle #2 on the way...
i do have to say i'm not digging the v1.0 UI - it's not nearly as intuitive as the beta was.

edit: decided to do a factory restore - we'll see what happens. heading out to lunch as well - i'll be back to play with this thing in an hour or so
post #145 of 9676
Someone please try out the webkit browser and report functionality of various flash websites.

I think it was said earlier that while its scrapping its better not to run HD files\\streams....I think the scrapping was intensive which could affect playback.

so looks like no one machine like PB,BB,GOOGLE TV,WD is better than the other?? May be BB should come out with Intel penwell instead of Sodaville next year same time to fix the stuttering issues.

Try a factory restore? (posted above / previously).
post #150 of 9676
factory restored - prompted to grab the update - been sitting at 'downloading now' : 0% : 'calculating...' for 5 minutes.
zero internet/network activity based on the lan port lights on the box - not happy
