    Assuming I can jailbreak it?

    I currently own ATV3, should I hold out for a jailbreak? (I know one is not imminent or guaranteed, I can wait)

    I understand ATV2 is limited to 720p content. Any other drawbacks to ATV2?

    If you're wanting to jailbreak an iOS based Apple TV, get an Apple TV 2 now before they go up in price even more. They may continue to go up in price because the Apple TV 3 may never be jailbroken.

    Is also a weaker machine than an aTV 3
    But no jb or talk of one for the aTV 3

    $140 is cheap actually; they are going for around $200

    Ebay goes for $200+, so $140 is a good price.

    pretty decent price. i got mine off ebay for $135 minus the remote (cost $10 from kijij seller). i just checked the seller i got it from (who was selling a large quantity of refurbs) back in december and his last price for it was raised to $189 :eek:

    if i wasn't in the apple ecosystem, i'd consider the new roku as the atv2 is showing its age in terms of speed and performance.. but i needs my airplay and xbmc lol

    $140.00 is really good. I scoured my craigslist ads daily and scored my last one for $100.00 and I would not sell my two ATV2's for any amount right now.

    I don't get why they are going for over $200 now that the latest jailbreak has been patched.

    I traded my ATV3 for an ATV2 from a friend. It was a straight, even swap. Best deal I ever made, lol.

    There's a jailbreak for it but its a tethered beta use at your own risk type of deal.

    If all you do is stream music or photos, the roku app lets you do that too

    I have a roku 2 XD and I play my music through it, I wish they had a video option though :(

    I believe the atv2 is an A4 device, right? Doesn't the A4 have a bootrom exploit?
