If I drill down 100 levels (used to be one click in .9) I can get to my local shows. Next I select Chuck. Instead of seeing just my three episodes of chuck I see TONS. Now I don't know which are my three since Boxee has cluttered it with online content.

Give me the option of leave it alone or separating out the content: both, just online or just local.

wait, are you saying that not only they have separated online and local in the main menu but that once you finally get to the folder where your local content is, it is also populated with online content?

I had not realized that, but if that's the case, it's pretty bad.

No, that's not the case. If you go to the Files menu, local content is completely separate from online content.

So ... Moves>Files is local content only. Files>Movies is local content only.

Now, I'm not a fan of how many clicks it takes to get to local content, but you can definitely separate it out.

But having to go to the files section removes your search options. You can't sort by genre in the files section. so now you can either sort a-z or recently added. No more clicking Comedy, and having a list of comedy films.

It is Definitely combined.

I go to Menu->Files->Shows. At this point it only lists Titles to shows I have downloaded.
Next I select Chuck. I have three episodes of Chuck downloaded.

In my list I see 5 episodes from season 4, 2 from season 2 and several from season 1. When I select the ones that are not mine I have the option of playing it with WB.

If there is a way to separate local and online content please let me know.

Also: To be safe I tried Menu->Shows->Files and it does the same thing. A combination.

Update: What other users may be confused about is that there isn't as much "online" content. For example there is no online content for the show Castle where on the .9 PC version there is (Fancast and Hulu). So if you did the above test with Castle you would think local content was separated from online when it is really not.
