View Full Version : boxee beta performance

how does the new boxee beta perform on apple tv when it comes to mkv files etc? Earlier versions does not perform well due to lack of GPU usage. Can we expect more action now?

I have not seen a difference, nor do I expect there to be one since they still don't have access to hardware acceleration. They are saying that H.264 playback has improved, I personally haven't noticed this.

are ya'll seeing the Apple TV reboot after pausing a video for say 5 minutes or so? (It might be 10 minutes).

It seems to be a hard reboot because the LED flashes yellow and on reboot it plays the introduction movie for the Apple TV, which hardly ever happens even if I shut down the aTV and unplug for a couple days. It happened twice tonight though.
