Still need to get Spotimc working properly, and I really hope they get Airplay fixed with ios7 and xbmc soon. Otherwise, just awesome.
Heh... Glad it's working for you and the family. XBMC is getting incredibly powerful since its inception. I've been running XBMC since the beginning, back when it was called XBMP. Started running it on a modded original XBOX, which is where the name originated. It started as XBox Media Player, and eventually morphed into XBMC(XBox Media Center). Even though it currently runs on any platform, it's still retained the name.
I got an AppleTV2, and configured it up for my Dad and Stepmom a couple years ago. Last visit home over Thanksgiving, the first thing my Stepmom said to me was "If you want your father and I's marriage to continue, you've got to fix that damn movie box."
