Boxee is Bad

This bug is the reason why I haven't moved to Boxee. After reading multiple times, I still don't understand why this issue can't be fixed. I have an assortment of shows that are sitting on my hard drive at home. Boxee likes to fill in the gaps of what I don't have with those that are available online. Great. But, it also likes to search for any online content first instead of any local content. What this means is that my full local collection of South Park videos takes ~30 sec to 1 min to load because Boxee wants to check if there are any shows available online as well. WTH? THEY ARE ALL LOCAL, I DON'T CARE IF THEY ARE ONLINE-VIEWABLE!

Changing Media Centers

I have decided to make the switch. Yes, a new media center (or HTPC, if you prefer). I've been a longtime follower and user of MediaPortal, both for its ability to run on different hardware and the quality of the finished project. It has the ability to run a TV "server", and schedule recordings and playback for every MP computer in the house. In addition, it has great plugin support and the quality of the plugins are just as good.
