I have both the ATV1 and ATV2 hacked with XBMC streaming HD shows from a 2TB NAS. Never watch free to air tv now. Without XBMC or Boxee the ATV is somewhat limited to expensive content that Apple has licenses to.

Wha.....?????

We don't, and when my 14yo daughter works out easy Apple makes it to buy the entire Kardashian series, I'll probably regret this purchase.

I also have hacked my ATV (Apple TV) wit XBMC (Xbox Media Center) after finding it originally very limited to what could be done, highly recommend everyone doing it.

Friend of mine has it, it's pretty cool, sometimes a bit finicky, but otherwise great, i just go to her place for movie night and we scroll through movies we want to see, none of this old school stuff like going to the video store. :cool:

+1 for Apple TV.
I have one in the lounge and one in the bedroom - not hacked. Not worth the trouble IMO.
The small footprint is great - in the lounge I have it taped to the under-side of the TV next to the remote IR sensor (all the other devices are behind a cupboard door) so no cables or mess - and it is so small you don't even notice it.

Good choice of online movies, easy enough for my wife to use, and Airplay means it is simple to have Peppa Pig play on the big TV from the iPad for the little person. Remote APP on the iPhone is handy interface for using it to watch web movies or to search for iTunes media.

Simplicity and silence > media formats supported.
