AirPlay on atv1?

RemoteHD is a version of open source Airplay that other applications use, basically a reverse engineering of Airplay.

Only DRM free media will work with this Airplay, some internet videos should work too though the CPU in the AppleTV1 is so weak I'm not sure if it's up to the task decoding H.264 video.

It's been a long time but I thought that only worked within XBMC, the RemoteHD ties into the Apple dashboard.

XBMC itself has open source Airplay built in so you can go down that route but it would be easier to to ditch the ATV1 entirely in that case for another XBMC box.
