    Default Hacking IOS Apple TV - Newbie help

    I am interested in the new Apple TV but am having a tough time making a decision. I really like how it is going to integrate with iTunes and also allow streaming from any ios device. This will lead to some really cool features in the future and Jobs has even hinted at an app store for the apple TV in the not too distant future.

    Unfortunately, I hate that it will not be able to play other formats such as MKV. My question is whether it is likely that the new ATV will be hackable like the old ATV and allow us to play more media formats and add other cool features. I am really mostly interested in being able to stream more formats than those supported out of the box. What are the chances the new ATV can be hacked in this way?

    I have thought about buying a Boxee box but it is $200 and won't have some of the cool ATV features (like ios streaming, app store, etc.)

    Thanks everyone.

    Well it is supposed to be running iOS so it is a good chance it will be jailbroken at some point which could lead to more functionality.

    Sure, it's going to be opened up and hacked to play 1080p mkv H@5.1 with 16 reference frame Come on, the device has not even shipped yet so how can anyone but Apple know anything at all about it ?

    Come back and ask again in a month or so.
