    hi guys, i'm thinking of getting an ATV. I'm thinking of connecting it with my AEBS via either ethernet or usb cable, and I'm wondering if it's possible to use the ATV as an airdisk for data backup purpose.

    This won't work unless you hack the firmware or something. The USB port is used for "diagnostic purposes", and the Apple TV won't appear as a disk if you tried to connect it via USB...
