Except that Apple actually doesn't sell the ATV units to make money on the hardware. They probably even subsidise the hardware, so would make a loss off those who only use it for XBMC. Just saying.

Apple has never subsidize hardware. They never have, never will.

Since Apple essentially used the same hardware in all of their portable devices that sell like hotcakes the parts arent very expensive for them. The AppleTV is pretty much just an iPod Touch without a screen. And seeing as an 8GB touch is only $229 new, $99 is about what it would cost sans screen and making it tiny. But I agree with most everyone in this thread, as soon as I read the announcement of XBMC for iOS I ordered one for the parents. I never even tried out Frontrow, just straight put XBMC on it, the thing is utter garbage without the BMC .

Tremendous work guys! XBMC truly helps improve the aTV2 platform. I'm still learning about some functionality and add-ons and I'm impressed every step of the way.
Donation has been sent. Many thanks.

XBMC is awesome, you guys are great, just made a donation as XBMC makes my ATV2 actually useful
How about the 'old timers' or anonymous guys - pooh - 2011-04-17 23:43
almost 20K reads of this topic and the trend shows many of the 'newbies' have donated. That is not strange at all for XBMC has opened up to the iOS platform which attracts a whole new and different audience (no longer the 'techies' from the old days).
BUT, how about you 'old timers' and 'newbies' reading this and trying the iOS version? 20K reads at $1 per hit could mean $20K for the devs to go crazy and bring awesome things...
So, a kind request, please donate a few $$$ here:
And please remember every amount counts, so if you're having fun with your 'XBMC enabled' device, please consider a small donation (how about $10, that's only a few beers?), and do that every once in a while?
Showing off you XBMC enabled device comes at a price ... ;-) Nah, seriously, please remember how much work you enjoy, and think about the hard work put in there by others.
Again a huge thanks to the XBMC team, not only Davilla, Jonathan and other 'regularly visable' team members, but to the WHOLE team working on this and spending a MASSIVE amount of private time so you and I can enjoy their work.
Think about it, there no free ride, but it comes for free as long as we donate a little once in a while, and keep it goin'
Thanks for your kind consideration.
