Sounds enough, but, since we havent tried this method ourselves yet as this wasnt possible until recently, wed love to hear back from you guys on the results.

And although there is a way to get XBMC working on theoriginal Apple TV, as well as on jailbrokenApple TV 2see more details at the end of this post, there are still millions ofApple TV and nonjailbreakable Apple TV 2* owners left without the ability to get XBMC on their little, black boxes.

In this case we will use AirParrot, the only software out there that enables screen mirroring on Windows.

However, Apple doesnt seem to think so, as there are no XBMC apps for iPhone or iPad nor any XBMC support on Apple TV, may be due to the misuse for piracy. But it seems unir that the restnonpirategood fellas have to suffer too.

The process is a bit complicated forApple TV 1users. In this case, youll be using a software calledOpenElecand you wont be able to install XBMC as a separate channel on your settop box but instead youll need toinstall XBMC as a standalone operating system on it. In short, your old Apple TV will boot directly into the XBMC home screen.

Step Right click on the AirParrot icon in the bottom right and select your Apple TV.

So these are the methods by which you can get XBMC to show up on your HDTV using the Apple TV or nonjailbreakable Apple TV 2. Please try them out and let us know which one works the best for you.

Just enable OS X native AirPlay Mirroring to the Apple TV and its done.

Airplay, Airplay.. hate that . thats not the point!

This is probably a question for XBMC website, but when Im in Airplay mode from my iPad, I cant seem to get the Fullscreen 2 setting to work. It shows up in the settings but when I tap it the whole menu disappears and it wont switch from 1. Any ideas here?

There is a much better solution. Plex Media. You run a Plex server from a Mac or Windows and unlike XBMC there are Apps for playback on just about anything but the Apple TV. iOS, Android, Chromecast, Roku, etc. You can use Airplay to push it to the Apple TV, or there is a hack that allows you access Plex through the trailers app, its a little complicated though so I wouldnt recommend that path for a novice.

Now your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is running the complete XBMC suite. Just enable AirPlay Mirroring from the pull up menu and your HDTV will start the show.

Youll notice that the app screen and media are showingboxedinor with black pillars on its sides. Fear not! Within the app, just go into Settings System Video Display mode and change it to FullScreen 2
