It's not known specifically what caused the to and fro behaviour it's also not known to Syabas (maker of the two aforementioned set to boxes) as to whether or not the boxes will get everything YouTube now offers; with one particular feature of interest being the YouTube movie rental service in the U.S. which would require Syabas to integrate Google Checkout for the purposes of purchasing rentals. Though perhaps an easier method would be to give the ability to browse rentals already unlocked on a networked computer.
