I just installed Boxee on my AppleTV and played around for a bit. Things seem to be working fine (little sluggish sometimes). Just had a question about the quality of the video(s) from Hulu. I know on the web you can change the quality to something higher and it looks better. Is this possible with the AppleTV or not?

I know that Hulu does have an HD library. I think it's a different player than the SD version. When I started viewing HD on Safari, it did install a new plug in IIRC.

I can't see why AppleTV couldn't support this as well.

I don't think ATV has the horsepower to keep up with the higher quality streams and Boxee I think was recently updated to use the lower quality Hulu streams on ATV.
