look elsewhere, this is a failed product, took 2 days to get the firmware update installed, it wouldn't work without it. The remote up button never worked and then within 2 hours of actually using the box the remote stops working all together

I am in the home automation industry and have been for the past 10 years. I have had this working perfectly on latest firmware. You need a descent internet package. All my drive were scanned and ALL cover art was present I have used Apple TV, Dune and Control4 and this is by far the best and easiest media player I have seen in the many years I have done this. Well done Dlink.

No media box can do 100% what a PC can do, but this media player is great. It's great for streaming your media from a hard drive, PC or NAS box. It has a built in wifi card and has no problem streaming 1080p movie files from your pc. It even organises the files nicely so you can see exactly what you are seeing. Online media access is great with access to programs like Flickr, Spotify and Youtube. Has the ability to connect to US media by using a VPN connection which is also a huge plus. Can't recommend it enough.
A little box of fun

I bought my Boxee when I was upgrading all my home theatre system because I thought it would be a good replacement for my trusty old WD media player which is quite fussy about media formats. The Boxee is really great for anyone like myself who is a bit techy and loves gadgets because this little beast does everything really well. It has genuinely surpassed any expectations I had before buying it. I would totally recommend it for playing almost any type of audio & video media through your TV/home theatre system. Its quite simple to set up and use, all of my friends and family who have seen it think its awesome, its a little more expensive than similar products but it does everything much better than cheaper units. My only suggestion would be make sure you have a pretty fast broadband connection to avoid any buffering issues whilst streaming online media. Big thumbs up from me.

Boxee is in one word - Rubbish. This product will continually frustrate you to the point of getting a hammer to solve the problems permanently. Firmware update issues, power off issues. lockup issues and playback issues. Complete lack of support from Dlink! but no surprise there. Steer clear unless you enjoy being frustrated. There are better and cheaper media players available.
