For those of you who like Boxee but couldn't be bothered getting the Box for your home theatre setup, D-Link is now offering you the remote that came with it for your Mac or PC. Just to show they care.
As Jason noted in his review, the Boxee Box was a really good local media streamer, but the software was also pretty damn buggy. Well hopefully that will change for the better now that Boxee has issued their first firmware update. Not only does it offer 30 bug fixes, it adds improvements to navigational and sorting elements in the UI.
So it's shipping, and will support Netflix and Hulu Plus before the end of the year, but what's actually inside D-Link's Boxee Box? iFixit found "build quality that rivals Apple's " and "is much more solid than the Logitech Revue".
The D-Link Boxee Box (in addition to Boxee clients for PC and Mac) will offer HD movie rentals when it lands in living rooms in coming weeks, courtesy of a new partnership with Vudu. Vudu's full HD rentals - 1080p, Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 Surround Sound - cost two bucks a pop for two nights of viewing. Not a bad service to add to Boxee's arsenal, not bad at all.
