What do you mean by "successful"? I've got no problem connecting to netflix via VPN using unifi. Or do you mean streaming TM's hypo tv channels through ATV?

Depending on what you want to do with it .. you can stream movies from your Mac through itunes to the AppleTV. If you want to subscribe to online streaming services in the US, yes, you need either VPN or a mechanism such as unblock-us.com ..

Sad to say, no you can't use appletv to watch those channels streamed by Unifi's IPTV. Read more about it here:

Yup, it works just like those media players sold here:

http://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopi...62384&hl=player

Just that, without jailbreaking it, you can only stream movies through itunes. There are few other services offered which are free like youtube etc. which I've never try them.

Apple TV is not your average mediaplayer. I'be been using it for about 2 months now and have stopped buying DVDs or Blurays. Jailbreaking is the way to go to fully utilize this magical little black box. Also AirPlay mirroring will blow you away. Everything on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 will appear on your LCD TV. I can jailbreak the apple TV in less than 40 minutes. I hardly watch astro or iptv nowadays. All latest and old movies, tv shows, music concerts, comedies etc at your fingertips 24 hours a day, for FREE!

hi, regarding your comment on "AirPlay mirroring will blow you away. Everything on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 will appear on your LCD TV." is the mirroring take 100% full screen on the LCD TV? or with black border?

how about without jailbreak it, can i use whatever app in my iphone/ipad to do the AirPlay mirroring or only those app with tv out support?

Yes, literally everything on your iPhone 4s and iPad 2 will be on your screen. There will be black bars at the sides but it will appear full screen for movies, photos and certain games. AirPlay mirroring works without jailbreak as well. U have to update to the latest 5.0.1 software.

Icefilms and navi-x works like a charm. Very easy to use and reliable streams.

if you're a football fan, sad to say the best and most reliable method would still be subscribing to astro >.>

anyone who have tried streaming any match or heck even searching for em while streaming would agree ._.

I guess you've the Apple TV 1st generation instead of the new black box. The black box is not as powerful as the old AppleTV and I couldn't find those media streaming service from my XBMC list.

No mate, I'm using Apple TV2, just got it about 3 months ago. Icefilms and navi-x are very easy to install and streams beautifully. U have to install the repository and addons manually. It's not built in to xbmc. I cannot explain how to do it here as the mods might remove the thread. U can actually do it in less than 5 mins.
