Question TBS shows not playing

I'm new to Boxee, so please forgive me if this has been discussed before. I couldn't seem to find anything for it though.

I just installed Boxee on my computer (I only have the software...not the box itself). I'm trying to watch episodes of Family Guy, but when I click on them all I get is the loading bar and then a black screen. It says that the episode is playing (the time is moving), but all I have is a black screen with no audio. Any idea why this is happening?

Thats strange, 2 days ago I watched an episode of Seinfeld and it played near perfectly. Well minus the whole shrinking for every commercial. However I tried watching an episode of Conan a few months back and it completely locked up the boxee box. I think has something to do with how TBS does their websites and ads and junk.

Hopefully when Boxee updates their browser this next month TBS will start to work.

Just to see if it made any difference, I went to through Firefox (even with having Adblock Plus installed) and I was able to watch the videos there just fine. Through Boxee? Still nothing but a black screen.
