Default Boxee Box Confirmed Missing Features

Lots of threads on the awesomeness of the Box, but lets have one spot for all the missing/broken prior features:
  • No Netflix
  • No Hulu
  • Nu Vudu
  • No Youtube HD (there but not working)
  • No Justin.tv
  • No last.FM
  • No Subtitles or broken .mkv subtitles?
  • No Genre sort or other sort for own Movies
  • No Genre sort or other sort for own TV Shows
  • No search for local content (conflicting reports)
  • TV shows now in 2 different spots (local and online)
  • Movies now in 2 different spots (local and online)
  • No background video
  • No manual "mark as watched"
  • No frequent monitoring of local content folders (kills HTPC OTA and other video usage)
  • Identify local files via IMDB not working as well as prior versions
  • No milkdrop visualizations for music playback
  • Any more?

I'm looking forward to afp or nfs support. Gonna have to install samba on my file server. Feel like I'll have to wash afterward.

Huh? NTFS support?

It detects my 500GB NTFS formatted Hard Drive just fine, aswell as my 16GB NTFS formatted Kingston thumb drive.

Plays all my files, and even plays a 19GB Bluray Rip that I have from the hard drive.

As far as I know Boxee software never did any of those things, so they aren't now "missing features".

I know what you mean, but it's really really easy. Took me about 15 minutes, because I insisted on reading through all the info in the included configuration file.

Besides, I don't foresee them adding any other protocols, since SMB is built into Windows and OS X and Samba is available for every *nix OS.

Milk-drop Visualizations is in 0.9.23.15885, not in 1.0 (at least not on the Boxee Box)
Music browser features have been scaled back from 0.9.23
Photos too.

EDIT: I was wrong, 'repositories' is under 'apps'. I must have been blind.
