I was an early AppleTV adopter and a big believer in the iTunes ecosystem. I liked the idea that the iPod introduced which was that you manage your library in iTunes and then just sync everything to your iPod/AppleTV and consume content from there. No managing what to sync. If you own it, it's your content, decide what you want to watch or listen to when you're in front of the tv, not when you sync. I got a 160GB for that purpose. My library eventually outgrew it. Then Apple introduced the ATV2 which sort of solved the small hard drive by removing it entirely. You now no longer sync your library. You stream it from a place that can grow with it: your Mac. The issue with this is that you must have the Mac running. This wouldn't be an issue with a desktop but given that a vast majority of computers that Apple sells are laptops, this doesn't work with the idea of a simple, non technical living room experience. When I picked up an ATV2 to replace it on my main tv (because of AirPlay), I thought I'd keep the original as my bedroom AppleTV which would host my content. This worked for music and I streamed video from my Mac. Eventually, I missed AirPlay in the bedroom so I bought an AppleTV for each room of the house. Now I have an unused AppleTV first gen. I've thought of selling it but I was in error in my perception that the "classic" AppleTV would have a high resale value because of its ability for customization and because of the mood surrounding the launch of the ATV2 with many people wanting an HDD in their AppleTV's. AppleTV's are selling for about $100 on eBay. It's not worth selling. I'd rather keep it. I'm now looking for a creative use for my original AppleTV. My first thought was that I could install OSX on it and run iTunes, using it as my main content library that I can then see on any AppleTV via iTunes HomeSharing. Is this possible? Has anybody done anything really creative with a classic AppleTV? What suggestions do you have?
