Gosh insite. That's pretty leading edge stuff. I can't help you but as Sky is illegal here I suspect that to be able to use Apple TV facilities is "a big ask". I might be wrong but.....

I have jail broken the unit already and loaded XBMC as the instructions for the jail break - I am however unable to get what is on the computer screen onto the TV - there is a piece of code I need to install through " Terminal " - I have tried this but keep getting error messages and am reluctant to keep going in the fear that I knock something essential out - is there anybody out there who could access my machine through Team Viewer and assist - here is the link of what I need to do Rolling Eyes I THINK Rolling Eyes - wiki.xbmc.org/index.ph...MC_on_ATV2
