Alternatives to Apple TV for iTunes extras
Hi all. I'm becoming increasingly frustrated by the lack of what I would think to be 'standard' features on my Apple TV2 I've resigned myself to the fact that I will always have to have my iMac on but I can't get my head around the AppleTV2s inability to play iTunes extras. They are sold bundled with the films in iTunes after all.
My question is this, if I were to ditch my AppleTV in favour of something more flexible, what would be a good alternative? Do other streaming boxes allow you to play the bonus content from ripped DVDs?

Jailbreaking is non-trivial, but it's free and if you spend an evening you'll probably be able to get it set up exactly how you want.
As far as I know Roku doesn't offer this kind of functionality.
Another workaround is to play the DVD in your mac and use a program like AirParrot to mirror your mac's screen to your Apple TV.

Regardless, I don't think any of the mentioned options will work due to the DRM on iTunes purchased content. I have to admit I wasn't aware the iTunes Extras couldn't be streamed to an Apple TV. I only have one iTunes bought movie with Extras and haven't tried watching it since we had a first gen Apple TV, to which the iTunes Extras could be synced and viewed.
