Boxee Box Update Adds UI Tweaks, 3D Improvements

Boxee has released a firmware update that brings UI tweaks and some updates for 3D.

In this update we also made some minor UI changes to address certain usability issues related to playback of local files (added more filter and sort options, quicker navigation in long lists based on A-Z, ability to mark movies as Watched/Unwatched).

Improvements and additions:
● Enabling user flavor selection (online/local files inclination) during first login and via Settings
● Added alphabetical scrollbar for local files
● Enhanced sorting options in browse screens (A-Z, Z-A, most popular, newest/oldest…)
● Add Genre filter support for local files
● Mark movies as watched/unwatched from the Action menu
● Added option for hourly scan of SMB/UPnP/USB sources
● Added SMB client defaults to Network Settings
● When watching side-by-side or over/under video, the subtitles and OSD would not be visible when wearing 3D glasses. The user now has the option, under Settings, to have the user interface properly displayed when watching 3D videos

Go to Settings>System>Update to manually check for and download the update.
