It froze during the update for a prolonged period. I had to power down, but now when I switch on it doesn't even go through the boot sequence. Furthermore I can't seem to do a factory restore or get into recovery mode. I have held down the power for 6-10 seconds and still the logo on the box is green with nothing on the screen. Please help, this is very frustrating.

I'm a newbie in Linux (just two weeks ;) ), so I don't know if what I did was wrong, but it works. I downloaded the 64bit package, and it ask me for libxmlrpc-c3 too. I installed from repositories, but it doesn't worked, so I installed it from terminal. Terminal told me that library was obsolete, but I can install libxmlrpc-c3-0. So I did. But it didn't work yet. So I extract the deb package and I found a file named "control" inside "DEBIAN" folder. Inside it, I looked for libxmlrpc-c3 and I change it with the name of the new lib "libxmlrpc-c3-0" (just add "-0"). I saved and repacked the deb. And now it's working fine.</p> <p>I hope this help!</p> Sun, 08 May 2011 17:23:40 -0400 support.boxee.tv/forums/243471-boxee-box-questions-answers/posts.rss:243471:20071447:20106207 Adri Gómez http://support.boxee.tv/entries/20071447-boxee-won-t-install-on-ubuntu-11-04 How to prevent my Boxee box from cropping a video that is being played? <p>Some of the videos I watch on my boxee box do not perfectly fit my wide-screen TV, so I have black bars on top and at the bottom of the video.

When I had Maverick Meercat (10.10) installed, Boxee worked like a charm and because of its features, became my favourite application. But ever since I have upgraded to Natty Narwhal (11.04), I get "dependency not satisfiable- libxmlrpc-c3. I checked in synaptic and it was already installed. Assuming that probably dev package might be needed, I installed dev for core as well as for c3 without success. Repository is returning forbidden notification. Perhaps for Natty, Deb package is still not built. I have now unchecked the repository for the time being.
