Boxee Box has evolved, the strange yet unique looking media player has just stepped into v1.1 software and is looking better than ever. The v1.1 update is rolling out over the next few days and includes a mammoth amount of fies and new features. First of all we have the huge browser update which now includes favorites, history and a better UI which now shows off more of the picture and includes more options, plus expanded HTML5 capabilities that should fix login problems for HBO Go.
The on-screen display has been tweaked and has a new seek bar for more precise FF/Rewind support as well as support for customized local metadata and NFO files (!), a new MLB.tv app and two new content partners. Volume controls have been moved and this is (according to Boxee) to put the Boxee Box in line with Blu-ray players that don't include volume adjustment. The update should be pushed out automatically, but if you are impatient and want it now, now, now then you can have a look on the Boxee Box forums.
