Come See Rob Talk Tomorrow in NYC / Come Party with the Boxee Crew 10 Nov.

We’re 15 days away from the launch of the Boxee Box from D-Link, our first dedicated hardware device to hit the market! Boxee HQ is buzzing with anticipation of the release and I know you in our developer community are as well. It’s a special time for this community that we’ve built together and a whole lot of engineering blood and sweat will be on display in a couple short weeks.

In anticipation of the release, I’ll be giving a talk to the New York Personal Computer User Group about how we use open source at Boxee, give a brief overview of the development platform, show off the new Boxee Box and of course answer a bunch of your questions. Here are the details on this month’s meeting of NYPC:

At Ripley-Grier, 520 8th Ave, between 36th & 37th Street
10th floor, Room 10D
Doors Open 6pm, Presentation 6:45 - 8:45

And on launch day 10 November Boxee and D-Link will be throwing a Boxee Box launch in Manhattan. We’ll be debuting the Boxee Box live, showing off some new surprises and pushing our baby out into the market in style. Already 1,000 people have RSVPed - be sure to sign up now before the event sells out!

    Hey Rob! I had a suggestion that has so far gone unacknowledged. It involves integration of Rhapsody and Napster into the Boxee Box. I would also love to see the ability to control the Boxee Box’s music playing capabilities by browsing local music and Rhapsody and Napster from the Boxee Iphone/Ipod application. This feature would make it so that you wouldn’t have to turn on your TV every time you want to browse or change your music. It would also make the Boxee Box have the capabilities of the awesome, but expensive, Sonos system (which has very little competition). I think all of these potential features would not only secure your application as the most versatile and useful media streamer, but also would expand your market as you would be a very affordable alternative to the Sonos music system, while retaining all of your other amazing features! What do you think? I would love to hear from you!

    Hello again. I have a quick question. Will the Boxee Box support 1080p skins? I hope it does! That would look amazing on my HDTV.
