XBMC

Now I have a TV which doesn't suck (I finally replaced my ten-year-old 32" widescreen CRT with a nice 46" LCD) I've felt inclined to poke around a lot more with XBMC on the AppleTV.

Skin-wise, really digging "Ellipsis". Nice clean design, everything's big and easy to see from a distance.

Much to my pleasure it turns out some people have made an unofficial add-on repository for Australian "catch-up" TV. You can find it here. Download the zip file, scp it to the aTV, use the "install from zip file" option in the add-on manager, install the ones you want from there.

They all seem to work just fine. The ABC iView one is the most useful as iView has a decent amount of content. ABC News24 is just a live stream, which I can get from my digital STB with better picture quality. Channel 10 has very little. Plus7 is kind of lacking in anything I care about, but may float your boat. SBS works properly too.

Now, if I could just get the Pandora add-on working properly I'd be over the moon. I've got Pandora working on desktops, and via the browser on the PS3, but the XBMC add-on can't log in. Looking over the forum thread on the subject it seems kind of dodgy. Oh well. Not the end of the world, I've got Radio Paradise…
