Apple TV emulator on a mac

Hi all

Please forgive me if this has been covered before, for some reason I couldnt find anything so thought I would ask.

I dont have an ATV, but would love access to the extra HD movies you can buy through that interface.

I was wondering, if there is any way of running an emulator ON my mac, which would appear as an ATV so I could download those better choice movies. Then is it possible to throw them back into normal iTunes on the mac?

I really want Blade Runner HD, but dont really want to spend on an ATV-which I wouldnt really use as I travel a lot.

If anyone can help/point me in the right direction id be most grateful.

Thank you!!!

Apple TV emulator

The closest you will come to an emulator is ATV4MAC.
It only runs under Tiger because the AppleTV frameworks were compiled under Tiger. You might as well spring foe a used AppleTV. It will be cheaper than dedicating a Mac to running Tiger.

You wouldn't necessarily need to have a second Mac. You could always load Tiger onto an external HDD and boot into that when you want/need to.
