Reemote and the Boxee Box

I’ve got several requests to define what features of Reemote for Boxee are also working with the Boxee Box, so here it is.

Working:

  • Navigation – you can use gesture-based navigation or a virtual stick to navigate the Boxee OSD.
  • Now Playing – you get now-playing infos, depending on what’s playing these may include cover-art, ratings, plot outlines…
  • Lookups – you can search google and youtube on what’s currently playing.
  • Sharing – you can easily share what’s currently playing on twitter and facebook.


Not Working:

  • Media Shares – content browsing breaks with the latest Boxee Box firmware.
  • Shortcuts – all shortcuts to directly jump to a specific section e.g. Movies or Apps also break with the latest update.

Please note that the Boxee Box still remains unsupported and none of this is guaranteed to work!
