    Default Repositories with Windows 8

    Just switched to W8 and Boxee works fin but I cannot get the apps I want. No repository URL is accepted. Just getting a message wondering if I have mistyped it or what...

    Another thing is that I cannot get the local weather!!??

    Is there a special version for Windows 8? An app?

    Boxee has stopped support Boxee on computers so there isn't going to be a version or an app for Windows 8.

    And if it's not working as-is, you just may be out of luck.

    I don't use Boxee on W8 very much, but I installed v1.5.0.23596 on W8 Pro x64 just out of curiosity and it seems to be working fine

    I have 'many' 3rd party repos installed and the few I tried are working fine, including Accuweather and even Navi-x which many forum members are currently reporting issues with... mostly on the Boxee Box

    I didn't add any new Apps or repos while using Boxee in W8 - if possible, maybe you should try adding the apps/repos you're having trouble with in Boxee on another Windows OS (ie... W7) and see if they show up and function in Boxee on W8

    Too bad for those who changed their OS.
