    AFAIK, Boxee is now only available for Boxee Boxes, iPad, etc.

    Perhaps I should give Ubuntu TV a shot?

    Check http://boxee.tv and look on their forums.

    Someone is maintaining packages for Boxee 1.5. Don't know if will work for 10.04. I use 10.04 for my mythtv and I was thinking of upgrading but I would for sure build a Virtual Machine and try it there first.

    1. Boxee for computers is dead. A LOT of stuff doesn't work in 1.5 (the last release for PC) as well.

    2. Boxee was built on XBMC. Its in the repos and theirs a PPA for it too.
    See https://launchpad.net/~team-xbmc/+archive/ppa (Stable)
    or https://launchpad.net/~team-xbmc/+archive/unstable (Unstable)

    3. Ubuntu TV isn't out yet.

    I have now managed to get Boxee working on my Ubuntu 11.10 installation only to find out later that the maker of the software is not supporting it anymore........suck my teeth!

    Thanks for the update. Basically, Boxee has a ton of apps and adds new ones regularly. Also, it has one of the nicest remotes with its full keypad. Furthermore, you do not have to buy the Boxee Box to use it. Aside from other hardware makers, Boxee is also free to download and can be used on any modern PC, laptop, or tablet. They even have an Apple TV version. Perhaps, you may also consider taking a look at Boxee TV, a streaming set-top container that also does DVR services and can get basic channels via HD antenna.
