    I'd really like to see a Roku channel for this. I don't want to watch TV on my computer monitor with my crappy speakers.

    I had the same problem. The trick is to not use the Boxee input screen but instead click inside the input boxes on the web page, and then enter the information there using the Boxee keyboard.

    So you were able to log in?

    When I initially tried it, if I opened the Boxee input screen(with the field and virtual keyboard, after entering the info and closing the input screen the website field was still empty, so I just moved the pointer overtop the field and when I used the remote's keyboard, the field would show what I entered.

    I can see the info populate the field and everything looks great, it's just that after clicking the log in button, it would act like it was logging me in, but when I returned to the site I was still not logged in.

    Then, later last night I had an even stranger occurence. When I tried to log in again, it would skip the provider selection screen and just assume I was an AT&T customer. When I clicked on the "I'm not an AT&T customer" it just sent me back to the website to start again :(

    Did you just goto the website or use the HBOGO app?

    I'll give it another shot tonight.

    The smoothness is going to depend on your Internet connection. My speed is about 10 mbps, and it is pretty smooth.

    That would be nice. Although isn't the same content available with "On Demand"?

    No. There is a LOT more available on GO. For example, every episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Nope, not at all. Every single archive episode of every series HBO has done: "The Sopranos," "Rome," Carnivale," "Deadwood," etc., plus all the currently-running movies, documentaries, miniseries, etc. available on the linear channel.

    I can see how the current setup in done on purpose for added security. If you're not willing to give someone your D* info and password, you're less likely to start sharing your access with friends and family who don't live with you and don't subscribe to HBO.

    I think you'll see Cinemax product improving considerably soon.

    Sounds really good but it would be better if we could watch them on a TV. It's great for people who want watch something and are away from home though.

    Looks like it is time to replace the old Pentium 4 lap top. Video is kind of jittery on it.

    Okay...for clarification...

    "I think you'll see Cinemax product improving, considerably soon."

    I was being snarky and joking. I've amended my post to better reflect that.
