    Hi, Im new here

    So my friend gave me his apple tv 2...
    i took it because I wanted to stream my PC on my TV and I use AirParrot to do so.

    Now my question is: if I jailbreak my Apple TV, will I be able to use airparrot or is there another method to steam my PC?

    Thanks everyone!!

    Don't know anything about air parrot. If it works now, jail breaking shouldn't affect it.

    I've got a jailbroken AppleTV 2 so I can run XBMC on it and all the built in "apps", channels and and airplay still work fine as jailbreaking doesn't really touch these, it just allows the installation of additional software...

    Assuming AirParrot is using the standard AirPlay protocols it should work fine on a jailbroken device.

    AirParrot works fine on a jailbroken atv2. Try out Beamer as well.

    Do not see any reason why not.

    I Do not see any reason why it will not work on JB device.
    If that helps, AirMyPC:
    runs perfectly for me on Jailbreak AppleTV 2 - but it works with Windows OS - you did not mention the computer OS.
