If you are a Boxee Box and iOS owner, you’ll be aware that music and video can be streamed to the Boxee Box. When Mountain Lion arrived today, I had expected to be able to stream the interface from my mac to the Boxee Box via AirPlay which is now built into the OS. Unfortunately there’s some bad news if you were thinking along the same lines.
It seems that only an Apple TV is capable of being a destination device for an OSX 10.8 AirPlay session. For those who have already invested in a capable set top box, it is an annoying and seemingly unnecessary limitation. The dream of wirelessly displaying your desktop on the largest display in your house will have to wait a little longer.
