above someone mentioned using a USproxy/dnsserver. How do you configure the unit for this. I bought one and returned it. As i could not get any of the US networks here in Canada. is it a paid thing?

Resurrecting a bit of a stale thread here, but I bought my Boxee Box back in June, and after configuring it to work with Unblock-us (just a DNS entry change on the box), I have access to all of the US content.

What's better is that I also now have access to the US Netflix content using my Canadian account.

Another resurrection.

I have been researching this a bit and have come across the issues with the new Flash update and Boxee not being able to update for it. It seems to have killed the ability to watch many shows in the United States. I have not seen much information on the Canadian sites though.

Has anyone who owns a Boxee experienced not being able to watch certain shows/sites because of the update? I ask because they all seem to be working with my Windows version. I'm guessing this is because I'm able to load the new Flash on my Windows system, but I don't know if any of the content I'm trying to access would normally fail on the box.

I was ready to purchase a Boxee Box, but if they will never be able to update for the new Flash, the reason for my purchase becomes null.

The new version of Flash hasn't yet been released for Linux CE edition.
This is what Boxee runs on.

So until Adobe releases the update for Linux CE, the boxee won't get the update.
