Feedback on Boxee - US user please

All,

Just finished setup of a new mini with external drive for playing music/pics through TV. Was wondering about my next step - possibly installing Boxee for internet content management.

Would anyone be kind enough to provide some feedback on the application? I did a search, but only found some UK users having trouble getting US content. I wanted to read/get feedback on other's experience with this software....

Any help would be appreciated - thanks.

It's free, so try it out and decide for yourself if it suits your needs. I personally like Flex better because Flex works with the Apple remote and Boxee doesn't. OTOH Boxee seems to have fewer bugs.

The new boxxee beta is awesome! I find it much easier to use then plex. Plex is confusing.. too many menus, and sometimes it get stuck if you accidentally click right while scrolling through movies. Boxxee box is far simpler, my dad could use it!

Can't wait for boxxee box.

Thanks for the feedback. I downloaded Boxee beta last night and hopefully will have time to play with it over the weekend.
