Its nice to see lots of issues fixed but I will not use Your new update until You fix the UI and I'll be returning it in 2 weeks if its not made better by then. I bought this box based on my experience with 0.9 beta and I feel hard done by at You messing the UI about so much.

Can someone comment on if any of the "blu-Ray" fixes are for the mkv stuttering and Dolby TrueHD problems? Those two are all i really have but have rendered the device essentially useless as 90% of my stuff is mkv with TrueHD.

Is there going to be any fix for the repeated system crashes and restarts while watching pretty much anything?

I do not see any fix for Xvid issues. If I leave an Xvid video in progress and come back it to it, press start from the begining does not play the file. If I do resume a bar comes up for a fews seconds at the bottom of the screen and then screen turns black and boxee freezes up. Rebooting boxee does not help. If I turn it off for 5-10 mins the problem goes away.

Looks like you guys are doing a lot of fixes - cool - too late for me though - I returned my BBox to amazon earlier today

I will probably pick another one up when you release the next incarnation with (I'm sure) updates to the hardware and the new Netflix remote - by then the kinks will be mostly worked out.

These are important bugs to fix, but if the long delays loading cover art, and bugs related to playing online content in Canada (even the default channels) and local aren't fixed long before Xmas...there won't be much uptake by Joe Average.

I like the box, and tinkering around...but I want moms and wives to like it so that it becomes more prevalent (driving more innovation and more development). My worry is that it will forever stay a favoured toy amongst geeks like myself.

So how do we register to become a BETA tester. I'd happily go Beta. The Boxee BOX connects fine to my wireless G network, but trying to connect to my Airport Extreme, the network either doesnt appear, or I get the connected but not connected to the internet. As a result, I cant stream half my files as there isnt enough bandwidth over the G network. I realy dont want to have to go and change the authentication method on my N network as I have heaps of devices setup already.

I'm pretty sure that's Boxee's plan
