ATV 1.0 160GB Vs Boxee Box
So apple is clearing out the "old" apple tv's right now at $150 on their website, i love boxee/ XBMC and the way they organize my media.
Currently I have a wd TV Live and i love that it'll play anything i throw at it, but I wish it was more organized which is why I'm super excited about the Boxee Box. Background: I stream all my media from my computer, I have a nice big collection, and it's all DRM free.
1. Does Boxee on AppleTV have an limitations?
2. Should I wait for the boxee box and pay $200 with no HD, Wait for the ATV2.0 to be hacked but i'll be forced to use an external flash drive to play the content, or pick up an ATV1.0 right now and put boxee on it?

If you are just streaming, then the apple tv running boxee is perfectly fine. It's not slow at all. I've never had a problem.
It is slow however, if you try to stream videos from like nbc, or other websites withing boxee.
I stream movies from my external drive attached to my Airport Extreme. all movies are streamed wirelessly on my apple tv running boxee and it has no problems.
but I'd also just wait for something newer like the boxee or another box. no reason to try to "hack" the apple tv to do things other boxes will do natively.
