iFixit Boxee Teardown

Posted in Set Top Boxes by Conner Flynn on November 11th, 2010

No gadget is safe from a teardown from iFixit. Now they have dismantled the new Boxee. So what did the teardown reveal? Well, a lot of the internal component space is taken up by the huge heatsink needed to cool the Boxee Intel CE4110 processor, the 1GB of RAM, 1GB of flash memory, and a digital-to-analog audio converter.

So in the end, iFixit gave the Boxee a repair score of 7 /10, since the separate power board can be replaced independently from the motherboard, should it ever fail and need to be replaced.

Boxee Box release delayedWe hadn’t heard anything from D-Link and their Boxee Box in a while and they were coming towards the end of the expected Q2 release when they made a blog post announcing the delay of release. Apparently the Q2 time frame “proved overly ambitious” according to the post and a new release date for the US and Canada has been set to ship sometime in November.

The Boxee Box boasts the ability to bring many different types of streaming media to your HDTV from multiple online sources or connected directly through local media storage devices. Pandora, last.fm, shoutcast, We are Hunted, flickr, Picasa, Facebook, Flash 10.1 and most recently My Damn Channel are some of the media tied into the box.

Boxee Box coming soonBoxee is coming. And I don’t mean that kind from the original Battlestar Galactica. I mean the home theater PC software that makes watching streaming downloaded media on your TV easy. Mac Mini fans like it since it can be installed right on top of OS X. That’s because you need a computer in your living room to run it.

But it won’t be that way forever. Boxee just announced a deal with a hardware partner to release a Boxee Box for your living room sometime next year. So instead of buying a computer just for the Boxee, you’ll have a device designed specifically for your Boxee-related home theater use.
