Boxee Media Center Gets Official Hardware

At a press event Monday Boxee, the open source media center, unveiled it's new beta as well as a prototype dedicated set-top box they built with partner D-Link. The Boxee Box will cost around $200 with a RF remote, Wi-Fi, Ethernet and outputs for HDMI (the only video output), optical audio, analog stereo audio, as well as two USB slots the company envisions being used to add a webcam, external hard drive or antenna for receiving over-the-air programming. It comes with a simple multi-directional remote. The new beta version of the Boxee software, which launches to the general public over the next four weeks and goes fully public in January features a completely redone interface as well as several new social networking features. You can follow the development and view some of the beta's screen shots at the Boxee Blog.
