Now that they've found a backdoor into the boxeebox just wondering if theirs any chance that we'll ever see xbmc come over to the boxeebox, i mean they've already got telnet root access enabled...

im not a developer but it should be possible no? And i think for all those people that bought into boxeebox on the initial hype from boxee that they were going to make the box xbmc compatible and "open" that all fell through on its face it would be cool if xbmc would support the boxeeplus guys and maybe get xbmc onto the boxeebox fully.

There's nothing stopping anyone stepping up to the plate but I doubt the XBMC team will. Boxee only sold something like 200k units and the number of those willing to hack the box is probably a tiny fraction.

Even if you could get XBMC running the developers would have to find a way to tie it into the hardware decoders on the Boxee Box and running XBMC on it may fair no better than the Boxee software itself.

If you can sell your Boxee and get the money together for a Pivos XIOS DS, that is open source and has some of the XBMC team working on it.

Makes you wonder how many where made all together. Is there some warehouse out there full of Boxee Boxes?

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Some say the Boxee boxes were always there and the warehouse was built around them

I've heard this phrase before, but have no idea where from.

Top Gear use a similar phrase whenever they introduce their tame racing driver 'The Stig'

They were bundling boxee boxes with TVs here is Australia not long ago... maybe they will be dumped with the Atari 2600 ET cartridges buried in a New Mexico desert...
