The Boxee Deployment

When an IT professional finds himself "between projects" (aka, unemployed), he stays @ home and suffers from Tech Withdrawal Syndrome. To compensate, the technological sophistication @ home must be upped a notch or two.

So, I downloaded Boxee, try it on my main PC and decided it was worthy. Then took our 2 retired laptops and make'em boxee clients, one for the TV in the bedroom (via VGA Port) and the 2nd on the living room, using an old CRT as TV.

All Boxee clients pull content over the home network from my recently deployed 6 terra array. No more DVD burning of movies... buahaha.

want pics?

K,

My main PC is too messy ATM... not showing that. But here's the living room:



Here's the master room TV:



And here is the Android program to use the cell phone as a boxee remote (until I get proper MCE ones).



And of course, most of the work was performed on the kitchen table.
