    Default access mbp remotely from apple tv2?
    I was able to jailbreak using Greenpois0n RC6 and i installed nitotv. I then installed XBMC. How do I setup my Apple TV 2 so that I can stream content/videos from my mac book pro to the ATV2?

    I tried to use exposed but can't find it on the main menu.

    HELP!

    Thanks!

    Why not try plex? I found plex to be a lot more user friendly and easier to set up.

    You have to share the folder on your MAC and ATV2 will see it when you fire up XBMC.

    Where do I find Plex once I jailbreak with greenpois0n?

    I want to use my appletv so I can see exactly what I see on my MBP. Is that possible or do you only get access to the files?

    For instance, if I open up a streaming video in safari on my MBP, id like to be able to see it on my MBP

    Thanks!

    At this moment it's not possible to control the MBP from the ATV2.
    You'll need a VNC client for that, we currently only have a VNC server for the ATV2.

    If you want to access the files on your MBP, you can do so from XBMC.
    I just setup an SMB share in my iMac and then added the "Windows Share" in XBMC
