Mike, let me know if Understudy keeps working. I know that Hulu is making Boxee pull Hulu integration from their code.

Will do, I plan on futzing around with this and doing updates over the next few weeks.

This may be going in a slightly different direction than you intended, but...
My wife and I axed the cable and joined a gym. It is a real no frills kind of place, and by signing a contract we are paying very little monthly (less than a cable bill). The kicker is that ALL of their aerobic machines have individual tvs hooked on them... with cable. So, if we want to watch anything on tv, we just go to the gym. Now we get to watch our favorite shows AND get a workout in at the same time.

It reminds me of a neighbor of mine when I lived in Vermont who set up a business making exercise-bike-powered electric generators. A lot of people bought them to help keep their kids from becoming total couch potatoes while watching television: the bike-powered generator charged a battery, which you then used to run the TV. After a while the battery would run down, and if you wanted to keep watching you'd have to get on the exercise bike and ride it for an hour to replenish the battery.
