Netflix DRM Issue and MLB Won't Play

Just installed Boxee on two PCs, On each I can get to my accounts on MLB and Netflix, see my queue on Netflix and get to the MLB calendar of games. On Netflix when I chose a movie to play I get a message that says there is a DRM issue after the Netflix movie startup screens. On MLB I select an archived game and then it gets stuck on the screen that says the game will start shortly but it never starts. Both Netflix and MLB work on each PC when I go directly to each web site outside of Boxee.

What am I doing wrong? Is there some configuration setting I have to make?

For Netflix, are you able to stream selections via Internet Explorer?

What version of Windows are you running exactly

I am running Windows 7 on each machine. Both MLB and Netflix run directly from each of those sites on each of the PCs. Additionally, I can run Netflix via Xbox and MLB via Play on running via Xbox.

Thanks for your interest in this.

Are you using Internet Explorer for those sites directly when you say you can stream them from the PCs?

I suspect this is the bug a lot of us have seen with MLB.tv on Windows Boxee.

Skipping ahead, back, or to a specific point in the stream sends you right back to the start of the stream. Since MLB.tv 'pre-roll' with an hours worth of that 'Game will Start Shortly' screen, this means you can never re-watch, only watch live, and not be able to skip ahead or back.

Don't expect this to be fixed until the next version.

Don't expect there to be a next version on windows for the foreseeable future.
