OK, I just got the tweet from boxee that the long awaited SP3 firmware update is going to publicly roll out later today! Yes, which should give us Vudu and fix a bunch of other bugs in the OS. But, Netflix will not roll out till later in January.
So, keep hitting that Update refresh button, kiddies. 😉
