I primarily use Netflix and iTunes for watching Movies and TV shows and all my local files are saved in the Apple friendly .m4v-format with rich meta data including hi-res cover art, so right now everything is working good and looking amazing.
The only reasons I’m considering jailbreaking my ATV3 (as soon as this is possible) are: to access my files directly from my airport extreme (to avoid having my mac mini running with iTunes open) using your awesome looking movie poster view, and to be able to watch Hulu. Therefore I’m concerned with the following:
Is the MediaPlayer using the native player for playing .m4v? (I want to make sure my files looks equally good and plays smooth)
Can the MediaPlayer read and use the metadata (including cover art) I already included in the files themselves?
Can I acces Hulu directly from the Home screen or will I have to select XMBC and click through the menues everytime I want to Watch Hulu?
Does the Apple TV stream directly from Hulu or do I need a computer to be turned on and running something?
OK Then consider this a feature request for an option to rearrange icons. Everyone likes to be able to have a tailormade home screen. It would be nice to add new features without needing more clicks to get to my most used apps - Netflix for example. Ideally I would have Netflix in the best spot followed by Movies, Media Player and XMBC.
But thank you very much again for your quick reply. That is great customer service. I’m convinced that aTV flash is worth the money and I’m just waiting for a way to jailbreak my ATV3…
