Question Apple TV and Xgrid,

Ok, Hopethis isn't too dumb a question.

I have want to convert some home movies from DV footage to watch on the Apple TV.

I can do this on my iMac but, if i use and Xgrid enabled encoder, will it find the Apple TV and use it too aid the Xgrid encoding.

I ask this because of the forums posts that say that the apple TV is running a cut down version of OSX., perhaps it has the xgrid components still installed ?.


Am I making sense ? or barking up the completely wrong tree, I know this is not the apple TV's main purpose , but might be a useful plus for users that encode footage with various machines.

Xgrid won't find the AppleTV now, but I guess you could hack it to work. No real reason you couldn't... you could also hack it to run Folding@Home.

Hacking a little beyond my capability

Unfortunately, Hacking the TV is a bit beyond my technical ability, I switched for a reason but would run it if the hack were in place.
