Clever bloke, but ultimately useless.. In other news, 'axe' should have an 'e' on the end   (none of the forum smilies work??!!) 
Yay! Finally I can Jailbreak my Apple TV2 and install XBMC to watch all my ripped content without transcoding from my NAS. Good Times!  Now I can dump the WDTVLive .. just horrible to use.   BTW, anyone wanting to stream ripped content from a SAMBA share on a NAS to iPhone/iPad without transcoding (or client apps/etc.) should use 'Good Player' - definitely worth the £2.99 or whatever it was, and the only player I found for the iPhone that doesn't need a client app on...

Try this one for Mac (Intel only though).....http://www.virtualapple.org/
