I second the WDTV live.

I also like a mac mini as a hdtv pc. Its unobtrusive and you can load it with linux using bootcamp.

have you looked into the western digital live streaming tv they are under 100 and can use netflix and play every file type off the network has a ethernet and wireless n.  I got one and now thats all i use heck it even has 2 usb ports i plug my 64gig flashdrive in and can take the box with me to watch on friends or faimly tvs.  It will even play full bluray rips iv played 16gig files on it no problem from the flashdrive and network.

Are you sure about this?  I haven't used one personally, but the screenshot of the remote app on their page has a volume button.

My friend had a boxee box.  He used it for about two weeks and then sold it.  I'm not sure why, but he didn't like it very much.

Yea there is volume control on the android app... but not on the remote and its not bindable to the remote settings... I owned one of these and got rid of it for this reason.

That's too bad.

Besides the lack of volume control, was everything else about it good?  I'm thinking about getting one since that isn't a problem for me.  I watch lots of netflix and HD mkvs off an NFS/SMB share.

It's ok.  The interface is a tiny bit laggy and it's not nearly as sexy as XBMC...  I bought it to use for a couple weeks in the hospital and it worked fine for that but I don't like the interface for long term use.
