I can't imagine using this without a jailbreak. Good price though.
I love the jailbroken ATV in theory, but in execution, it sucks - in my experience. Icefilms and 1channel constantly break. I'll have them working fine one day, then go to try them a few days later and they just don't work.
I updated to the latest version of XBMC a few days ago and got 1channel working, and as of last night it no longer works. Do you just need to constantly tweak the settings and etc to keep them working?
Can't you just mirror Amazon from comp/iPad to Apple TV?
I agree with the above, though I haven't tried it yet because I don't get content from Amazon. Theoretically it should work.
I bought my Apple TV solely for the ability to mirror my MacBook and my parent's iPad onto the big TV downstairs, I don't use any of the built in "apps" they have. I think you're really paying for the AirPlay mirroring, that and the fancy packaging it comes in :o!
If you own other apple products, if you own a lot of itunes content and want to watch the content on your tv, an unjailbroken apple tv would work pretty well for you... especially if you have a mac running mountain lion and can airplay to the device. The 2 most important things are owning a mountain lion mac and having a lot of itunes videos; if you have those, definitely buy an apple tv, even a gen 3.
By "iTunes videos" Do you mean those purchased via iTunes, or rips of movies that you have stored in the iTunes program? Or Both?
