Looking for an invite to boxee If I get one I'll give away my invites to [H]. For those that don't know Boxee is a new "operating system" for htpcs.
You can see it in action on the last episode of dl.tv (Episode 244)

Well someone on another site just hooked me up.
Ofcourse I'm willing to share with [H] community so if anyone wants an invite post your email address.

BTW currently they only have versions for OS X and LInux, version for windows is comming in Fall

Not sure how many replies your going to get as the software is still in alpha and i cant think of nothing worse than getting half way through a film and something going wrong.

However saying that if you do install it, it would be nice if you could post your thoughts on it here with maybe some screens as it could be interesting once they get a stable build. From the low quality screens ive seen the UI looks pretty slick right now.

Actually at the moment there is no limit on how many invites you can send.
The ui is pretty slick and the whole thing looks like a very interesting concept, like I mentioned before grab the HD version of last episode of dl.tv, it has about 5-8 min of video about boxee and they talk to one of the creators. You get to see the screens in HD and they go over most of the features.

thanks, but I see now that its only on mac and linux right now. I'll have to wait for the windows version since the 780g chipset's hardware decoding doesn't work in linux yet.

Update:

Spent hours getting it to run on Gentoo, finally it works but as soon as I try to login to my account it crashes. Pretty damn disappointing so far.
I might set up temp ubuntu box just to see if it works there.

If anyone got it to work on any linux distro please post your resoults.

Why is this in a home theater pc and equipment discussion forum? Shouldn't it be under "free stuff" with the rest of the invites/requests?

because it's a front end for htpc? If mods want to move it that's fine.
