Hi I just downloaded the alpha file today and when I get to the first screen where it asks to add a user I enter in my info and click ok and I get an error saying that I am not connected to the internet. I tried using it in full screen as well as in a window. I have currently been runing XBMC with no connection issues....btw XBMC is not open while trying to run boxee I am running XPProSP3

Just wanted to put a side note on this thread. I searched the forums and couldn't come up with an answer. My machine is connected to the internet when I try to connect w/ boxee. But it doesn't seem to be able to find it. I couldn't find any settings sections to see how its connected. Has anyone else had this kind of problem

Shot in the dark could windows firewall be blocking it. Windows does strange things. try adding boxee as a Exception or disabling it just to test if boxee will connect.

duh guess that's how the term nub gets applied. Basic rudimentary computer skills and I managed to completely over look
