Even if your Boxee Box isn’t online (which would allow you to use one of the iOS/Android Remote Apps) – you can still connect to (and use) your Boxee Box.
Plug in a regular old USB Keyboard. Yep, it’s that simple. Use one of the two USB ports on the back of your Boxee Box and plug in a USB keyboard. Use the Enter key, the “arrow” keys and the ESC key to navigate through the various menus. Once you’ve used the keyboard to get your Boxee Box back online, you can download one of the many Android or iOS Apps to use as a Remote.
