No jailbreak for ATV3 so xbmc is out unless you own/seek out an ATV2. |
I'd think Apple TV was garbage too if I didn't have it networked to my Mac mini and iTunes. For that purpose its great, the only downer being I have to remux mkv's to mp4, but that only takes 30 seconds per file, so a quick batch convert and Im all set. Airplay is pretty sweet too.
For a long time I used a PS3 with a massive hdd as a media centre but ATV is so much more seamless. It'd be a doorstop without my own content though.
I do miss some of the fine tuning controls though, like goto time etc. Apple and their silly obsession with simplicity for the sake of it. Equally, I don't use the pathetic remote. Logitech Harmony One ftw.
