xbmc on ATV2

Using xbmc on the elder AppleTV2 (720p) and I must say - only this way the ATV2 becomes a useful device.

For an open source product it is very mature.

Only sad thing is that in xbmc even with dirty-region rendering turned on, the MacBookPro2011 (IntelGraphics) fans will start to spin up when xbmc is doing nothing (just rendering the gui). When you play a movie usually no gui element is visible and the fans calm down.
