What?

I miss the days before the MBP when Macs were well spec'd and built for extreme performance with A/V software, now they're just PCs with a much better operating system, average performance and an extreme price tag.

Most of the big Mac A/V software is dead anyway, won't be long until Ableton surpasses Logic considering Apple's apparent refusal to develop it much further.

is that one any good stoney?

I've got my jailbroken ipad linked up to my apple TV so I can stream xbmc etc onto my TV, but would rather have just one control. Is it easy to use/setup etc?

Its coming today, will let you know. Basically i can plug in my ext HD full of films and play. But the XBMX means i can access any regular or 3d movie ever made and play direct. It also gives access to all TV series and worldwide TV channels as well as 3pm kick off's. Will be interesting to see what the quality of picture is like.

XBMC is a media streaming package, let's you watch things on your tv off a hard drive / stream them over wifi etc.

All those channels are presumably through an app / addon or something similar installed on the box and streaming. Would be interested to know how well it works.
