|+OK, my BoxeeBox is toast, broken, bricked, Green-Red-Red. Unfortunately, my 2nd replacement is also fubared.|
|+I do not plan on buying another Boxee Box ...|
|+So, all of the work here is WITHOUT WARRANTY. IMPLEMENT AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS IS INCOMPLETE, WITH NO INTENTION OF FINISHING!|
|+THAT BEING SAID ...|
|+Feel free to fork and continue what I've started - which is a cleaner way to dual-boot XBMC and Boxee.|
|+What works: Added a menu option to kill Boxee and launch XBMC. checkxbmc.sh sleeps until the menu option inserts a flag; then it wakes up, kills Boxee, and launches XBMC.|
|+What doesn't: Choosing "Exit" from XBMC doesn't cleanly restart Boxee. This is because (at the time) the Exit process sometimes crashes, thus returning a different return code. This may have been fixed by now ...|
|+I was going to look into WHY xbmc is mounted as BoxeeLauncher, as this would obviously cause some issues in relaunching Boxee from XBMC.|
|+Also, the BoxeeHack+ scripts change the HOME directory - so if you execute /init.d/Boxee (not sure of the path from memory) from the actual HOME (/etc/ ? don't remember, but it was where the original settings and such are stored, I believe), it relaunches Boxee.|
|+Good luck, and hope this helps!|
