Hello, All my movies and tv shows are mkv files and on a NAS. Should I buy an old Apple TV and hack it, or wait for the new one to be hacked? Does anybody know how long it will be before you can play mkv files on external storage on the new one? Thanks.

The new one isn't running a cut-down version of osx like the old one which is going to make it more difficult for the "hackers" and for you. You might be waiting for awhile.
