    I'm really excited, this is a great item that will definitely be a great computer-tv bridge.

    A couple questions I have so far...

    1) What is the current state of Hulu on Boxee? I know for a while it worked, then it didn't, then it worked again...what's the status right now?

    2) Does installing Boxee void my warranty?

    3) Is there any way to expand my pictures and videos to take over the complete screen when I am viewing them not in a slideshow? I am looking at my media on a 1080p 50 inch tv and would love for it to take up the full screen, but instead there are black bars.

    I'm sure I'll have more questions as time goes on, but that's it for now! Thanks!

    Item 3: You should be able to zoom or stretch your picture using TV screen/picture controls

    1. Hulu is back and working well. Boxee accesses it via browser now. Its still buggy, but works as good as it ever did.

    2. Boxee will not void your warranty.

    Hulu/Boxee...

    I tried it and really didn't like it at all. The video quality was terrible and the stream froze frequently. If that's "as good as it's ever been" I'd stay away for sure. But that's just me... I actually like the content I watch to sound and look good.

    You can try out Boxee / XBMC , but i personally think that it is too complicated to use and too clunky.
    Also it freezes quite often.
