Openelec.tv great way to convert a old Apple TV generation 1 to a superb media Center XBMC the remote works it has HDMI and Composite video to old TVs

Loads of plugins skins it finds my media on other equipment on the network
Lasie nas, Linux machines windows machines,
Plex server also good for transcoding videos of the fly for playing on my Sony Internet tv too.

iPads can play content films program’s etc to the airplay mirror feature that can be enabled on XBMC.

handy to have a machine with in my case 32bit win7 so I could copy the program I wanted to use from program files to the mounted folder,

then use regedit (important)click on hklm then click file load hive give a name PSsoftware as example,

grab the software parts for that program from the source machine export to txt file, edit notepad (find and replace)change software to PSsoftware import, back in.

when done unload hive.

in windows\system32\
