Intel's Atom CE4100 chip currently powers D-Link's Boxee Box.
There are outstanding issues with this device can can only be resolved by Boxee once Intel release the updated SDK for the Intel Atom CE4100.
This has been stated numerous times by Boxee and has most recently been mentioned by Boxee CEO Avner Ronen when asked what was holding up availability of the Netlix UK app as part of a question and answer session with Boxee users that took place on 4th April 2012 which can be viewed at: http://www.spreecast.com/events/boxeechat
At 18:14 Avner's response is:
"So Netflix in the UK, newer version of flash, 3TB drive support, those are three issues that we hear a lot, those are three issues that are, can only be addressed when we move to a new SDK from Intel and that is a much longer process than we would want to and takes much more time than we would want to and resources and we still don't have a set date for it but that's what's holding it up."
It's also believed that a Netflix app for other non-US regions can only be released once Intel release the updated SDK.
At 29:22 it's also stated that the HD Audio drop out bug can also only be resolved once a new SDK from Intel is released.
"Without the new intel SDK it won't be resolved, so its going to take us time if and when that SDK will be something that we will be able to launch I think thats the only hope to solve it."
Intel discontinued support for the Atom CE4100 in October 2011. However it was also reported that "The CE4100 will continue to be sold and supported by Intel, and it will also remain - albeit more anonymously - in set top boxes."
The 200,000+ users of the Boxee Box powered by this Intel chipset some of whom are part of the 2,815 active Boxee Box Forum users (as of 19th May 2012) have been waiting patiently for news from either Intel or Boxee that the new SDK has been released so Boxee can implement fixes for the issues mentioned above and this has yet to happen.
The Boxee Box is featured on Intel's website at:

I believe Boxee users agree by not releasing the updated SDK, Intel isn't offering support for this chipset.
On very few case did Warner properly use Lossless audio codec on their Blu-ray Disc - they didn't consider DTS-HD Master Audio until recently (Watchmen, USA).
The worst comes for european countries who don't have a single Lossless audio format on their discs when several languages are present for multiple countries discs.
Why use a Blu-ray disc if you just have the same Dolby Digital sound as on DVD ?
For the past five years, rumors of the release of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here on SACD format have been spreading around the audiophile community. PF's Dark Side Of The Moon has met with reasonable success and has been available since 2003. Evidence suggests that most work has already completed on this previously-planned release, but not a word has been heard on the matter since early 2008.
The SACD format still enjoys a relatively strong following among audiophiles; new SACD players and SACD-compatible players are still being released into 2009, and there exists an active enthusiast community who are always looking for titles on the format.
Pink Floyd's recordings have long been a metric for audiophile grade recording. DSOTM received the ultimate audiophile treatment with its 2003 SACD release; WYWH deserves the same.
Some people are saying the new Death Magnetic CD from Metallica is overcompressed, distorted and clipping and is a victim of the Loudness War.
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has stated that the distortion and clipping is deliberate:
Note: If you DON'T like the sound of the production of the CD, you are at the WRONG petition.
This petition is in support of the CD of Death Magnetic - may it never change!!
The Beatles Discography has changed the shape and history of Music. The music of The Beatles has been released on many formats from LP's to Compact Disc.
It is now time for The Beatles Catalogue to finally be released on the latest high-resolution audio fomat, Super Audio CD.
Releasing The Beatles catalogue onto Super Audio CD will bring these legendary albums into the 21st Century and please millions of The Beatles fans across the globe.
SACD is a dead audio format.
We would like to establish an official funeral date and move on.

Wii want DolbyDigital 5.1 in the new Wii console!!!
The possibilities are amazingly endless! I think I can speak on behalf of billions of gamers around the world when I say it would be the disappointment of the century if this amazing new console, whose very design was based upon the notion innovation, didn't take advantage of this great audio technology!
What is more innovative than a console where the sound is not only all around you but passes through you via the new Wii remote! Now that would be a truly NEW and INNOVATIVE gaming experience!!
With the recent announcement of the Indiana Jones Trilogy coming to DVD in November, many fans have been disheartened to discover the DVDs will not feature DTS audio. As many of you know, DTS is a superior audio format to Dolby Digital. Help get the word out that fans want DTS by signing this petition now!
9. Lead The Way
By now you should have listened to the available audio clips of Mariah's two new, amazing ballads - Lead The Way and Never Too Far - which will feature on her upcoming album/soundtrack, Glitter.
As you might know, Mariah is having a hard time deciding which of these two great songs should be her second single.
This petition is to give the vote to Lead The Way. Not that Never Too Far isn't astounding in it's own right, but if you also feel that Lead The Way would be more successful on radio and commercially all around the world, then we need your signature on this petition.
Once enough signatures have been collected, they will be passed on to Mariah Carey and Virgin Records.
