Just a silly question here...

What can you actually do with a jailbroken apple tv2? What interesting apps are available for it? Is there a good site to keep track of these things? I know XBMC is out for it, but on my iPad it seems to klugey to actually use.

Let me know.

Yeah it only half-works on my iPad, runs great on the xbox though.

It's early days, go here for the best support forum for it.

Hopefully in the future there will be an ATV Appstore, then watch them fly off the shelves.

XBMC runs fantastically on it! Crap on my iPhone (screen too small for the interface), but works perfectly on the ATV.

XBMC runs even better on the ATV2G than it did on the 1st Gen. If I hadn't fully expected it to be ported to the ATV2G, I would never have upgraded (btw, anyone want to buy a 1st gen? :D)

An ATV with XBMC is complete, at least for now. I'm still hoping Apple will start letting developers create apps for it, I can see it becoming a solid competitor to existing game consoles.
