Hacking Apple TV question
Hey I have a quick question. Aside from hardware differences is hacking an Apple TV to run Boxee just as good as buying the D-Link Boxee when it comes out. I really just want Hulu and some other features but don't need Apple TV software linked to iTunes.
Basically if I buy an older gen Apple TV and hack it with Boxee software is it almost the same as buying the Boxee when it's released?Android user suffering from iPhone withdraw.

Last I checked Boxee stripped the Hulu support from the AppleTV because Hulu blocked them.[CENTER][SIGPIC][/SIGPIC][/CENTER]

Yeah I was thinking of getting an older gen apple tv with hulu from craigslist for $75 instead of spending $199/before tax for the D-Link Boxee.
Any opinions on what's would be better than Boxee? Should I build my own?
I don't mind spending the cash for it (Boxee) but I really liked the apple tv size.Android user suffering from iPhone withdraw.

The new AppleTVs size is just wow. The older AppleTV does have a heat issue though. It gets very warm.[CENTER][SIGPIC][/SIGPIC][/CENTER]

Whether or not it causes a problem depends on the surface (finishes) you put it on.
