    The last few weeks I'e been debating with myself and the IT guys at work on whether or not to get an ATV and whether or not I'd get Boxee. So last week I finally got both. I have Boxee on my ATV and on my MacBook.

    I told them how awesome it was and they wanted to see it. I couldn't bring in my ATV so I brought in my MB.

    At the unveiling I was kinda disappointed to know that I had to be connected to the internet to be able to access content on my local hard drive, since you have to log in. This wasn't a major problem since they could grant me access for the few moments of the demo. But what if I was somewhere else?

    Maybe I'm mistaken, but I couldn't find any info here. It was a quick search though. Anyone here use Boxee on a MB? This particular "issue" kinda sucks cuz I was convinced Boxee could replace front row.
