Unplggd: A Week with XBMC on AppleTV 2G

Apple TV XBMC

Unplggd shared their impression about practically using XBMC on AppleTV 2G during one week. Generally it works and this gives a hope for next release which should be much better. The major problem found during the testing is sluggish navigation. Maybe this is IR remote issue or the lack of memory. Also the system crashed when wireless N connection is used instead of wired. In any case XBMC should be adopted for AT2 more accurately. Especially as because there is no any alternative for AT2 stock software. PLEX is still alpha. So, XBMC has good chances to be the best for ARM as well. Also it’d be interesting to have possibility to tun Boxee on AT2 as well.

To summarize Unplggd experience with XBMC on AppleTV 2G I can suggest such solution for experienced users who know how to troubleshooting and recovery system. The rest should wait next release which I hope should be more stable.
