I was given an old Apple TV 1st generation (well as he said they are no good now) i used openelec it's so easy on there page your find the script and you just cut and paste in terminal (yes Mac user) and it makes a bootable USB. Stick that in the back of the TV1 and it does it all for you leaving you with XBMC and i have to say it runs very well indeed. Openelec as their own forum and i read how to put a VPN into the root so i can run my VPN also i have my 500GB external hard drive with my ever growing music collection plugged into the USB and using Music i can run all the songs through XBMC. For a piece of old kit the Apple TV 1 is still a good work horse so if you come across someone who thinks it's old hat and say's "you can have it" grab it with both hands.
