I got a reply from someone at Boxee R&D. "You will be able to share a storage device that is connected to it via samba."

Does anyone know if I can use the Boxee Box as a torrent seedbox? It'd be nice to have it download torrents and let me powerdown my laptop overnight. I'd also like to use it as a NAS so I can plug in a couple of 1TB drives and access the media from my laptop and maybe even an Apple Airplay device.
I don't live in the middle of nowhere, I live in a small college town with a population of 113,000. We used to sorta get 8 or 9 channels but since the switch-over we're down to 2 channels. The signals from Atlanta don't reach us unless I bought a fancy attic antennae.
Now, instead of watching OTA TV we turn on the Boxee and watch whatever I've downloaded.
