    I jailbroke my Apple TV 2 using GreenPois0n and installed XBMC from Nito. That is about the only thing I have done after jailbreaking. Can you guys tell me what else I can do to get the most out of my Apple TV?

    What is the best way to stream free movies and videos from the internet to the Apple TV? Can I stream Hulu/Hulu Plus? How about Amazon Video on Demand? How far away is a Safari like browser that you can use on Apple TV? Can a jailbroken ATV2 ever come close to the content offered on Roku/Boxee?

    TIA!

    I just have a windows laptop at home. What is SSH? What kind of functionality does this offer?

    If I sound like a noob, its cuz I am one. Take it easy on me.

    Secure SHell. It's a way of getting a command line interface on a remote system (it's a Unix-ey thing, which OSX and iOS are, but windows is not). Basically the terminal window on your local computer is actually running on some remote system. It's a bit like screen sharing, except for a command line interface. If you've never used a command line interface then the importance of this is probably lost on you.
