you still miss the point that any GPU with a TV outlet can do the same job as boxee without adding additional software and using up more resources since the GPU's already have the software that runs apps on your TV including remote controls to bypass keyboard use.

your total cost beyond a GPU (which many of us already have) is a cable that reaches your TV or a wireless hub



I think you miss the point. The point isn't that Boxee only allows you watch crunchyroll. Boxee is a media centre application that allows you to do everything in an integrated solution. Youtube, Hulu, Crunchyroll, South Park, etc. Boxee also acts as a media player playing any pictures or videos you own.

Can you do these things without Boxee? Yes, of course. It's about options and what people prefer. Some people love having the all in one integrated solution, and this what Boxee offers. Others love doing everything themselves, browsing to each site manually when needed.

On the member issue, I submitted a report to Boxee and they said they were going to add it to the bug report (on Sunday). The ticket was marked as solved though, so I wont get any further updates. I'm hoping they have it as high priority because I looked for a list of bugs and could not find one that they offered. Hopefully we can get member content soon as that will allow me to give more thorough testing of Boxee. As it is right now, I have no use for Crunchyroll on Boxee without member content.


umm you off in left center field?

you are aware a GPU with integrated TV output has a complete entertainment set up probably far more complete than boxee since it will also include connections for your audio or complete media center if you use one all of which can be run from one remote control.
as for youtube,hulu and CR...etc those are simply sources which any idiot can set up as favorites to access with a single click of the remote.

boxee really does NOT offer anything you wont already have with a TV out GPU's software sure it'll take you about 10 minutes to set up 15 if you need to duck under the desk to connect a cable then run it to the TV (if you don't use wireless) and a connection to your stereo/entertainment system at which point anything you stream on line can not only be viewed on your TV but also has the audio running through your stereo/entertainment system.

A graphics card does not have a complete entertainment setup. What do you think people use when they run media centres? It's not any software from ATi or Nvidia. There's PLEX for Mac's, MythTV for Linux, Boxee for multiple OS's, etc. Just plugging in your TV is a far cry from having actual media centre software running.

Again, just because you don't use something doesn't mean it doesn't have its place. You aren't the centre of the universe, there are millions out there using media centre software. Even commercials have advertised media centres.

How do you think these media centres are used? From the sounds of it you think media centres are meant for PC monitors. When you setup a media centre you have the audio and video running to the TV. The media centre is just an interface that provides an all in one solution.

ATi Multimedia Centre isn't even the same thing. ATi allows you to connect your cable TV, etc into your PC and watch TV on your computer. Not the other way around. It looks like we miss understood each other.

Boxee isn't about recording TV, allowing TV to be viewed on your PC. Boxee is about taking the PC and making it a media centre. Connect your TV monitor to your PC and watch online content at the comfort of your couch. ATi's software is the opposite. It's brings the TV to the PC.

you didn't look at all of it did you?


Control stunning home entertainment from your PC.


try the IMG file notice the (TV) its the TV out as a selectable option so any media can be run directly on your TV instead of a monitor

so not only can your PC get digital TV and HDTV signals it can also take any online content and play it on your TV which is exactly what you said they couldn't!

@dragoneyes001: True, you can plugin a TV monitor, but the ATi Multimedia Centre acts more as a media player in this case, not as an actual media centre. ATi's software is mainly used for the TV cable to PC. It doesn't offer you anything extra like Youtube, Hulu, etc.

If Boxee didn't offer any online content like Youtube, Hulu, etc it would be like any other media player. The appeal lies in the all in one solution. If Boxee didn't offer any online content it would be wouldn't even be worth a look.

actually your getting two different software's mixed up.

there's the TV tunner software and the multimedia software one allows you to add cable or adsl television channels to your PC the other runs media connected to your PC with added features like pic in pic, stop, rec, pause, rewind (which also can be run by remote).

you do know if you have internet youtube and hulu are not exactly selling points for a TV connection right?

like i said if it can play on a monitor it can play on a TV WITHOUT BOXEE!

you people keep trying to say boxee offers more than a GPU with TV out does so far you have NOT proven it adds anything the GPU's can't

in fact I'm not sure boxee can take direct feed from your web cam or camcorders where as the GPU's can. it can't convert media files while the GPUs do (reduce clutter save space run in a better format).

boxee is little more than a router with a interface software package for people who have old GPU's
