I've been in hiding for a while. What has happen with the AppleTV mods? anyone ever connected a DVD drive or forced it to run Tiger or Lep?

Im pretty sure tiger has been up and running on the apple tv, not sure about leopard though. i considered getting one a while back and was eager to try and get it running elgato as a pvr.
I just ended up building a HTPC instead as it was cheaper and easier

I bought one not so long ago. Haven't even fired it up yet. I would also very much like the idea of using it with an EyeTV. I can't think why Apple/ElGato haven't done it yet....

I would like to get one just to play with it and try some off the wall ideas and such but kinda out of my price range. I wonder if I can score one off of ebay dirt cheap.
