    There's even less benefit on the iPhone because it can do all this stock. You can only see like ten add-ons ( I don't even find any of them useful, some don't even run.) because you can't scroll. It's not worth the tiny buttons either. Oh but there is an add-on you can get to play PC games on it, maybe that'd be useful for the ATV.

    Default 1080p playback
    How is the playback on the 1080p files?

    But the ATV2 isn't capable of putting out anything more than 720p. XMBC's own wiki says any 1080 content will be scaled down. So what you've got here is a neat way of playing 720p movies on your TV. That's cool but didn't this little device do that anyway???

    iPad version works, but if you make use of Apple's case for the iPad as a stand, then XBMC ends up locked upside down, so a little awkward.

    For those having issues accessing the repo. Keep trying to install it. I even copied and pasted the link and it didn't work. After 5 tries, it did. Server is probably getting hit a lot or something, I don't know. Never had this happen to me before.

    Looks great on the iPhone but the buttons are too small an the lack of scrolling makes it impossible. I thought I' use VNC from my laptop to try a few other things but the screen cannot display XBMC.

    Just wish I had managed to get my ATV2 before 4.2.1 was out, there's no way I can have a MAC connected to it every time I want to use it.

    I love XBMC. It is great that it is now on the Apple TV.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    Sorry if this is dumb, but is this just another application that you can close out of, or does it replace the ios on the iPad.

    I downloaded it on my phone and now nothing shows up in cydia except for the front page. Changes, packages, sources, all blank.

    Try enabling the multimedia section or search for XBMC

    It's an app on iOS but I think it might be that way on the Apple TV
