Hi,

I'm curious if anyone has looked into this. The AppleTV2 is an amazing piece of hardware, and I'd like to put it to good use when I'm NOT watching TV - like when I sleep or I'm at work - especially since the electricity consumption is so low!

I'm wondering if it would be possible, either with an XBMC add-on or a standalone package, be able get Newsgroup binaries using the links to NZB files, similar to the SABNZB and NZBGET programs that run on most NAS devices.

It would be cool... Just throwing it out there in case others had thought of this...
