A new patchstick is out for the Apple TV. You can install SSH tools, Bin utilities, XBMC for Mac and Boxee for Mac. It should be fun to play around with. It's also a free alternative to aTV Flash.

Here's more from the Boxee blog.

You can get the USB patchstick creator here.

I heard about this yesterday. I tried getting an invite from Boxee, but they replied back saying there is a backlog and that it would take a few weeks. I guess the appication is worthless if you can't sign into Boxee. Sad

I just loaded the aTV flash on my AppleTv yesterday. My main reason for doing so was to access a 500GB USB external drive connected directly to the AppleTV for all my movies. I'm a little disappointed that none of the player apps included in aTV flash recognize the meta data from my movies. I use MetaX which works great in the AppleTV interface.

Does anyone know if XBMC for the AppleTV supports the use of an external USB drive connected directly to the ATV ?

Perhaps, but you have to start here with the install. I'm going to start playing around with this tomorrow (need a smaller flash drive). There could be changes needed for Apple TV v2.2. I'm just not sure yet. Everything is so new.

They just added CBS and Hulu streaming Very Happy

I might have to put this on my AppleTV, just have to wait for an invite... unless someone here is already a part of the alpha and would like to invite me Wink
