Boxee Box – Discontinued, but not forgotten

Out of all the media players we experimented with (and there were a few) the Boxee Box was always my favorite (we’ve had one sitting in our bedroom for a few years now). Sadly Dlink discontinued the Boxee Box in 2013 moving to a TV/DLNA media player that I thoroughly disliked instead (more about that later).

Of course to a fella like me that just means there are more surplused units out there at a substantial discount from the Boxees original $200 pricetag.

User support remains strong, with custom hacks available for installation that make the menus and functionality accessible for customization.

Also available, although difficult to find at this point, is an html based remote for Boxee units allowing some interesting (although not immediately useful potential). This is particularly important as most of the dlink developers documentation has evaporated.

Lets see what kinda of trouble I can get into with these devices.
