    The hardest part was the actual jail breaking of my apple tv2 but I got it done. Today I installed XBMC which was pretty easy. Im just tinkering with things right now. I have noticed that when in XBMC that the bottom part where the scrolling is, has been cut off. Probably a resolution setting issue, I will tinker with a bit more.

    Anyway, whats next? :)

    You'll need to adjust the screen in the settings menu on xbmc, i had to do that on all mine, otherwise its cutoff at the top and bottom.

    Popular Plugins (and what i use most)

    Hulu
    Icefilms
    Free Cable
    Navi-X
    KidsWB

    Personally i use Navi-X most of the time as i like to watch live feeds of the history and discovery channel. I occasionally get ESPN also, but its usually choppy and very low resolution. The sportsdevil plugin used to work great for ESPN but thats been abandoned as of late.

    Does Hulu work in the uk? Or is there a way to make it work in the uk? As I have managed to install it but it won't let me watch any of the program's.

    it won't work unless you use a VPN to make hulu think you're in the USA.

    Lots of VPN's available. Usually a few dollars a month.
