Alright I need your suggestions. I am considering installing firecore but I am wondering to put this on an Apple TV v1 or 2.

I understand that ATV1 has a hard drive and ATV2 is only 99 but I have the opportunity to get one or both and what is the best experience.

What advantages are there to ATV2? Cheaper, sure. but firecore is also a beta for ATV2 and from what I've seen there hasn't been much progress (or a least any blog updates to tell us how everything is going)

help, I like the idea of firecore but wondering what to go with.

 

thanks

I don't see what the Gen 2 Apple TV can do better than the 1st gen.... I have a 160GB 1st Gen ATV, I keep all my music and photos in the built in hard drive so it doesn't depend on another computer to display your photos and music. I also strream media from my NAS drive, I think Nito is a great program and use it regularly. The downside to this 1st gen device is that it doesn't play HD movies well unless they're downgraded in quality. I have a Seagate Theater Plus media player that pretty much plays everything you throw at it, I'm hoping Firecore can do the same for Apple TV II one day.
