I'm considering purchasing another year of ATV Flash but just need to confirm a couple things:

1. Since 1st gen stopped at 3.01 iOS, is there a similar app like AirPlay with the latest ATV Flash ?

2. How about Netflix?

Been here for more than 3 years and Fircore support has always been a hit and miss... I get less than half a chance of getting any help.

1) actually, it's 3.02.
(and it's not ios, like the appletv2 and appletv3; instead, it's running a version of intel tiger (mac os x 10.4) under the hood.

2) netflix: certainly doable.

silverlight and firefox are your keys to success:

(the most annoying part is grabbing a framework from a mac os x intel tiger install).

here's a guy doing it on youtube:

(he references another forum where he gives details:

(he mentions boxee in the title, and it's where he links to forum-wise, but, he does not use it in the demo).

choppy for the first few minutes, but then smooths out as it buffers and adjusts.

you'll definitely want a way to use a mouse during it (he uses rowmote's trackpad during the install). i've set a roomie with vnc to get it started.

3) alternate:

you can transcode from a pc (unsure how to do it on a mac) your inbound netflix stream (works for hulu, too) using a an app called playon in conjunction with xbmc on the appletv. more details here:

Useless info and not remotely answering the essential question.

It does not seem practical. It's making something so simple so cumbersome. For $100 or less, I can get a ATV3 or Roku.
