    I've recently been tempted to buy an apple tv 3.

    however what i'm looking to do is jailbreak it which apparently isnt possible on this yet.

    so with that in mind what would AV recommend?

    Ideally with HDMI connection - tethered/untethered is optional - i dont mind any

    and USB connections to play HDD content.

    thank you.

    You need to be a bit more specific about what your trying to do ? What do you want it to play and from where ? local files, iplayer, other online services etc..

    Bit of everything you've mentioned

    I used to play media directly from a hdd into the tv Usb but the port has become damaged.
    So I'd use the Usb ports to read mp4/mkv file's.

    Furthermore I'd like to use other Internet services available out there.

    I just want something to use as an alternative to a sky box.
