Okay, I see all these instructions for installing applications and whatnot to the Apple TV but I have NO idea how to get these files on there!
How do you do this, and can it be done without removing the hard drive?

What exact Apple TV (flat, grey box or black, small box) do you have and what OS do you use on your computer (Mac OS X or Windows)? Do you have iTunes?

The new (2010) Apple TV does not have a hard drive. It must be jailbroken using PwnageTool on a Mac. Then you use SSH to upload files.

Well I have an old Apple TV, which I thought you could figure out.

But yes I have iTunes, Windows 7 and XP machines, and working Tiger and Snow Leopard virtual machines.

No need, if the following is true:

Is your Apple TV not recognised by iTunes? How do you connect the Apple TV to your PC? Does the User Guide give you no clue?
