    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...

    I've been looking for a solution to put in a few rooms at our house. While I've never tried the Roku, it seems like it has most of what we want, except the local content. Yes, I've read about Plex but I've heard some not so good comments about it, and it doesn't seem to play movies ripped in...
