    ability to play full bitrate blu-ray rips=awesome
    ability to passthrough hd audio to a receiver=awesome
    rf remote=ability to hide oddly shaped box
    capable of accepting a usb ir adapter=ability to integrate into universal remotes and still be out of sight.

    What a let down. Still won't effect me though. I'll use the Boxee Box for my Media Room and the aTV for my bedroom.

    Really good point, the remote for it does look awsome with the keyboard on the back.
