Xbmc help please
I'm a little bit stuck and would appreciate a little help with XBMC on my Apple TV 2. I have always used Plex before but I understand Plex won't work on an ATV2 running the latest version on iOS
I've successfully jailbroke the ATV2 and installed XMBC on both the ATV and my iMac. The problem I have is configuring XBMC on the Apple TV2 to connect with my media folder on my iMac.
I have watched a couple of videos on Youtube but so far I have had no success. I have a media folder on my iMac called itunes media (with sub folders for music,films etc) on an internal drive, ideally all I need is XBMC on the Apple TV to see that folder.
Any help would be greatly appreciated....
If you need any more info please ask...
EDIT.. The Apple TV and the iMac are on the same network.

You can still run Plex on ATV2 using 5.02 as Apple are still signing that.
So with SeasonPass just right click on Create IPSW and select 5.0.2 and then sou will be able to install Plex

I wouldn't mind giving XBMC a try though just out of curiosity so I'll hang on a few hours and see if someone can help me sort XBMC out. Thanks though...

Enable "Sharing" on the folder, then access the files via afp from XBMC. If the media were purchased via iTunes (protected), you can set XBMC to receive AirPlay then set iTunes to send the output to the XBMC device from the list.
Hope this helps
