    If your on about the old gen AppleTV.. then surely you could get the OSX 10.5 install on it, partition your drive and share a secondary partition and connect it via Time Machine?

    But remember Time Machine needs at least the size of your HDD to work properly.

    But in regards to the new one I would doubt it, with only 8GB worth of storage..
