this is a known issue with ATI cards (Radeon X1600) you can try this not 100% sure it will work :

create this file
~/Library/Application Support/BOXEE/UserData/advancedsettings.xml

and paste this inside:

<advancedsettings>
<glrectanglehack>yes</glrectanglehack>
</advancedsettings>

close and restarted boxee
