After been spoiled with road runner in Orlando for 5 years it’s really hard to go another service specially if you live in Iceland where there is no competitions here in the TV market . So the service is really bad and price is high.
So I have been using AppleTV and using Apple Itunes gift cards to enjoy the VOD from my livingroom . One of the great option with AppleTv is XBMC. There is no other media player with the quality and power that XBMC bring you , plus its open-source , Loads of plugins and GREAT support( via web)
here you see XBMC media player on Ipad
The rumor says that Games is coming to the ATV2 shortly.
I wonder how they are going to solve the joystick ?
You can use the Ipad as a media player but stream from your SAN,
So If you are looking for replacement for you media center then you can´t go wrong with XBMC on AppleTv2.
You can get XBMC for the following systems
OSX – OSXPPC Linux Windows Apple TV LiveCD or USB
