For what it's worth, my interest is solely to get the eyeTV running on the AppleTV as a tuner. PVR would be nice, but totally not required. Let me explain why... here's my AV setup:

All of these are connected into the AV receiver, which handles all sound (the tv's sound isn't even connected), switching, power control, etc. The VCR is unusable for tapes, it's only duty is to act as a cable tuner, because that way the signal gets fed through the AV receiver and I don't have to navigate the TV's menus -- which like all Sony systems are completely unusable.
So now that the video market has stabilized I'm going to upgrade the entire suite. I am thinking of something like this:
Panasonic 42" plasma, no tuner at all!
Keep my Pioneer receiver
AppleTV with HDMI
Cheap-o progressive-scan DVD with HDMI
In this setup the video signals will bypass the tuner, their video output will go to the TV which has auto selection (phew) and all their audio goes to the receiver. The only problem with this concept is that the TV doesn't have a tuner. So I need some way to get a bog-standard TV signal into the TV. Something with QAM tuning would be great, like the Hybrid.
So all I need is a way to stream the video from eyeTV. I don't need recording, channel listings, or anything like that! Just a menu item in the AppleTV to select and tune the eyeTV and I would be in heaven!
I know this is probably the wrong place to ask, since I don't own an Apple TV and have no plans on buying one.
I have an old powerbook loaded with Leopard, and EyeTV (which is why I don't have any interest in Apple TV), but I would love to have EyeTV integrated inside Frontrow.
If someone can pull it off (and apparantly it can be done), I'm willing to pay good money for such a plugin.
Currently I'm using remote buddy to pull it together, but it is not a very elegant solution in my opinion. Having EyeTV inside Frontrow would be fantastic.
I'm even willing to try and build such a plugin myself, but I can only find references to appleTV/backrow... not the new frontrow...
