    Hi All,

    Considering getting an Apple TV to replace the PC i have connected to my Tv which currently runs XBMC, if I jailbreak it can i connect an external HDD to the ATV2 USB port? Alternatively if thats not possible, can i point XBMC on ATV2 to a networked HDD (NAS).

    Thanks all!

    The APple TV 2 cannot use a USB hard drive. It has a device UBS port, not a host. XBMC can use a network file share to stream media from.
