I don’t really understand why they are using composite cables for the component video, I didn’t really realize that would work but I guess there is no reason for it not to. This is pretty cool though, it does mean that people will be able to make modifications to the AppleTV without opening it up. I just don’t quite understand how they got it to boot from an external drive.
The AwkwardTV website isn’t up, it seems to have been dugg to death but I’ll let you know if I learn more about this hack.
