Default NBC Content freezes on Full Screen

There is a thread about this in the "Apple Support" but since it is a bug it probably belongs here as well.

When I use the "TV Shows" section to watch Community (hosted on NBC's web site) I am facing video playback issues.

I get the message to hit enter to enter full screen, at which point I can either ignore it, in which case the video plays (at a very low frame rate) cut off at the bottom of the screen, or if I full screen the video playback freezes and I can only hear audio.

I'm running OSX 10.6.7 and I'm rendering the screen on HDMI TV (no monitor attached to my box so this is the only output)

Anyone have suggestions? Can others full screen NBC content? Anything I can do to help / is the code for this component available somewhere? What are the next steps?

NBC has changed their streamer and so it appears it's basically non-functional for Boxee OS versions (NBC is also broken on the Boxee Box version for that matter).

Boxee hasn't announced when they plan to next update OS version of the software which is running about six months behind the Boxee Box version and where a lot of outstanding bugs for the OS version have also been addressed. They'll need to backport it to some extent and do some kind of testing before it would ready for public testing / use so who know when we'll see it.

Nothing to be done, really, but to wait it out.
