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.

For FREE? That's what I want! .. currently using paid netflix service, care to share what services that I could stream for free? I've install XBMC and streaming some services, but they're not all latest tho'.
*
Icefilms and navi-x works like a charm. Very easy to use and reliable streams.

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.

i used seasonpass 4.3
i understand that i need to download a zip file then put it thru ssh
but how?
*

[/quote]
It's better if u re-jailbreak with season pass for 4.4.4. More stable and much mor bug fixes and features, like AirPlay mirroring.
To load icefilms and navi-x, you need to download a program for windows called winscp, google it. And then transfer the zip files for icefilms and navi-x, which you can find very easily via google into the media folder of your apple tv. There are lots guides to do this. Lemme know if u need any help. Good luck!

Added on January 17, 2012, 8:45 pmI have one more question.

I have alot of Movie & TV Show in my iMac. Most of it is in avi and mkv format which I play with VLC in iMac.

If I have all the video file in the iTunes, can I play it (stream it) with my ATV2? I worry on the codex.
*
Apple tv can play.mkv and h.264 format up to 720p, .avi 720p file will result in stuttering as the A4 chip in the apple tv can't handle it.

I got my apple tv from the west 54th st. apple store in new York. After conversion it's about RM340 or so. Anyone needs help jail breaking and installing all the addons, give me a holler if ur in the klang valley. I'll do it for you for the cost of a Teh Tarik! It's just my passion to help people enjoy good entertainment. Or we could organize an apple tv TT or something.

Just wondering if the topic starter is still active, probably we could do a first page FAQ and guides on how to install xbmc, navi-x, or on how to subscribe to the streaming services.


Added on January 31, 2012, 8:33 amor probably acidburn can do at his thread instead?
*
don't think so bro, as jailbreaking is considered "piracy" and the thread will get deleted by the admins. Unless there'sa private forum, we can probably only discuss these things via pm.

Jailbreaking is no longer considered as piracy, there are one thread each in iphone, ipad and ipod sub-forums. I believe admins are okay with this. There is no piracy discussion anyway on AppleTV since no commercial applications are allowed on it.

is it? allright then we can go ahead. i was just being cautious! hehe.

hi guys,
from your experiences, how is it like playing 1080p videos using apple tv 2nd generation using xbmc?

i want to buy one the 2nd generation instead of the new 3rd generation just to jailbreak it. is it still jailbreakable now that new firmware released?
*
Apple tv2 does not output in 1080p, only apple tv 3 does. Apple tv 3 will be able to be jailbroken sometime soon.

Unfortunately not mate, unless you had saved your ssh blobs prior. And if your unit is the new apple tv 3, you may need to wait longer for the jailbreak to be available.

Stupid question but can you plug the Apple TV, which is from US, to our power socket without a transformer/brick like those laptop brick?

Of course. That's what all of us are doing to. It has a built in step down voltage converter.
