Okay will make a request in the discussion thread for the nightly build. hope someone who compiles the code will complete it.
Worst thing is it just would not work on that platform. and hopefully not mess with anything else in the build.

Hey Harry, mind editing the 1st post and putting in the code/relevant setup info I need so I can attempt an ATV2 build?
Thanks man! This is awesome. Makes me want to rush out and grab a slingbox if I can use atv2s as settops

Thanks Harry for working on this. Looking forward to it getting into a build!

I used this for patching the pvr branch:
Look at the diff view, I then copied and pasted what I needed and edited the relavent files. I then have a bunch of patch files I keep one level lower than the git directory so I can repatch files when a git update wants to change the relevant file..
AirPlay feature in iOS - Atv2 - 2011-05-09 17:05
Not sure if this is the appropriate area to post my comment but I've got my Slingbox Pro-HD streaming to my apple tv 2 via AirPlay using my iPhone 4 without any problems.
Only once (don't ask me how), but my iPhone 4 which was sending the AirPlay to my apple tv 2 had somehow encountered an error in which I decided to shut my phone completely off and the Slingbox was miraculously somehow still streaming with AirPlay completely disabled from my iPhone!
Maybe a developer can use this info into porting a standalone app into the Apple TV 2 but by using AirPlay to sling onto my $99 box I have no complaints!!

Figured out what the issue is. Apparently XBMC Live is compiled with a different prefix (location of data files) ... so I'll post a new XBMC.bin binary for XBMC Live shortly.

That's actually a good idea ... I'll try to get around to that when I have some spare time. In the mean time ... all the code you need is located in:
Hope that helps,

Updated files for anyone wanting to use this with XBMC Live (apparently XBMC Live uses slightly different compile options so I needed to make a new binary for it to make it work): http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VE0PK0O3
Untar the file you download. It contains two files, xbmc.bin and strings.xml. Copy the xbmc.bin file to /usr/lib/xbmc overwriting the existing xbmc.bin file and copy the strings.xml file to /usr/share/xbmc/language/English/strings.xml overwriting the existing strings.xml file. Make sure you keep the permissions the same on the new files so as not to break anything.
If you require more step by step instructions (ie: how to untar, change permissions, etc.) feel free to post here or start another thread and hopefully someone with a bit more time will be able to help out ... I'm on the run at the moment
P.S. This has been tested by myself to make sure it actually works with XBMC Live 10.1.
P.P.S. This binary contains the latest (and most likely final) version of the Slingbox Patch and also the first revision of the Disc Stub patch.

Harry - I assume that the code you are putting together needs some version of running FLASH in the XBMC build to get XBMC to play a stream from my SLINGBOX? Is that correct, that I need a way to play a FLASH file from within XBMC?
Reason why I am asking, is that there is no FLASH in the XBMC build for the Apple TV 2 (aka ATV2).

1. Slingbox doesn't use a flash video format. It uses VC-1 which is the same video format you find in blu-rays, wmv's and silverlight.
2. The ATV2 supports flash streams, just anything beyond SD the CPU struggles due to no GPU decoding.
