OK, I've looked through the FAQ etc. but can't find any help.

I've downloaded the Mac version onto my Mac Mini but when I run the application all I get is a white blank box...any ideas?

Please provide your Mac Mini's specification. In addition, please confirm that you installed Beta 2. Also, post the log file (~/Library/Logs/xbmc.log) to pastebin.com and provide the link here.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Please read and follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting, please make sure you read this first.

OK, the Mac Mini is a 1.66ghz Intel Core Duo with 2GB RAM running 10.5.5

Here's the log file

You're running Boxee, not XBMC. Either way, the reason for the failure is due to your OpenGL driver, it's running in software mode:
Code:
INFO: GL_RENDERER = Apple Software Renderer

Are you attempting this over remote desktop or something? I'm sure Boxee's tech support will be happy to help you out: http://forum.boxee.tv/

EDIT: Let me add that the renderer string for an Intel Mac Mini should be something like:
Code:
INFO: GL_RENDERER = Intel GMA 950 OpenGL Engine

Well, I have downloaded both Boxee and XBMC, neither work. I may have been using Screen Sharing while launching XBMC, should I try without?
