Hi,
Apple TV is great but a MacMini would have been better. For times I would like to surf the web on my HDTV is it possible to screen share from a Mac to the AppleTV?

This person (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?t=81617) appears to have found a way but the tech talk is way higher than my know how.

What has to be done to make this possible? I imagine everyone would want this capability!

There's no easy way to do it right now. There are some hacks, which I suspect the user in your link is using. But, most of those hacks require a good bit of technical knowledge to setup. Living with them can be a hassle of its own.

It might be worth waiting a little while to see what happens with the iOS 5 release since there's some updates that could change the landscape a bit.
