AppleTV with XBMC
Hi all, not sure if this is appropriate here, so please excuse if it is not. I have just recently been playing with a jailbroken AppleTV2 with XBMC running on it. Seems to work very well when connected via Ethernet. So well in fact I am considering relegating the A200 to the basement TV. Has anyone else played with this setup? Are there any significant drawbacks when compared with Popcorn Hour that I am missing here?

Rapid interface makes it easier to browse through your media library. My PCH A110 does now serve as media server for my AppleTV2. Looking into getting a real NAS now as the PCH doesn't perform all that impressive as media server. :/

RE: AppleTV with XBMC
Update, I scrapped the XBMC interface in favor of atv flash and absolutely love it. Atv Flash is the same straight forward interface as the rest of the Apple TV functionality, so it is just seamless. The solution has been rock solid. The IMDB scrapping is FAST! I have two AppleTV's running it now on my 32" and 46" TV's. If it weren't for the 720P output, my A200 on the 60" would have been replaced as well. As it stands, the A200 is at risk of a permanent departure once the Apple TV3 is released and there is a JB for it. I am thinking that has a likelihood of occurring before the next firmware update at this rate...
