so i was wondering this. the old Apple TV was a stripped down version of mac osx tiger. which allowed hackers basicaly to rip the os appart and do what they wanted. the new apple tv based on ios adn needs to have video streamed to it from the itunes store. if that is the case maybe one way to hack the apple tv would be to set a proxy up between the apple tv and the internet which could server external media (transcoding if needed) to the apple tv tricking it into thinking its coming from the itunes store. i am sure there would be more elegant solutions out there. i am not a programmer so couldnt do anything wiht this but i do like to think out side the box. what do you think ????
