    Hey guys,

    I'm looking into buying an ATV2, i plan on jailbreaking to get the XMBC app, and probably use the icefilms plugin for the most part. I would also like to utilize hulu... from what i'm reading i can use the bluecop repository to get hulu content via the XMBC app.

    So then i guess the only hurdle i need to leap over is the whole VPN issue.... i'm not in the states.

    I've read of some solutions:

    1) paid service (unblock-us) =\

    2) VPN on my computer (hotspot shield) and direct apple tv to that gateway? Can anyone explain this? or if this is even true/possible?

    3) i thought i read somewhere that XMBC has a proxy setting, does that work at all?

    Hi, I have used both setups myself and they both work well. I would recommend Unblock us for use with ATV, easy to setup and no loss in speed.

    What operating system would you be using VPN on to bridge the connection? I did mine via my Mac.
