For all of those out there that have a 1080i set, why don't you go the route of an A/V receiver? It's not cheap, but it's also a GREAT upgrade for your viewing experience. Surround sound is the bomb.

For users who are experiencing this green screen issue, we believe this will be resolved in the imminent software update that will be rolling out to all users in the coming week or two.

well played boxee - esp w/ Google's "do no evil" move of saying they want 7-figures for youtube on STB access. Loophole is if YouTube is accessed via browser it's fine. So making a STB that uses a browser... bingo bango :)

unless i'm misunderstanding this whole Boxee thing
