Boxee Box and local content

15 Dec 2010

Boxee have released a Box update for the v1 firmware, fixing one of the big issues I and many others had – an option prioritise local files over online content.

If it’s your first time starting the Box, you’ll now get this question on the way in:

If it’s not, you can make the switch in Settings.

Now when you go to Movies or Shows it displays your files by default. It now calls them ‘Local Movies’ which is an improvement over ‘Movies Files’, but I’d still prefer simply ‘Movies’.

This update also adds nice features such as an alphabetical scrollbar, more sorting options and the option to set hourly scans of your media sources is back. So I can tick those of the ‘missing from the Boxee Beta’ list:

It sounds as if the last two are coming in the next update (out before the end of the year), which just leaves the question of the interface, and whether there will be any improvements there?
