    as you might no apple tv can now be jail broken to add the
    addon xmbc for other tv streaming . the apple 2 tv box is around
    75 pounds, getting 1 with xmbc install for extra tv stuff is
    200+ GBP

    but the xmbc client can be downloaded onto your pc for free
    which i have done and i will stream it to my tv.
    which is the most stable version of xmbc and apart from
    icefilms can anyone recommend and good plugins to add to it ?

    I'm using XBMC 11.0 - Eden on my apple tv 2. It's stable for me. I don't know if it will be the same on the PC.

    About the plugins. I'm using rtmpgui+ for streaming a lot of world wide channels and sportsdevil for..live sports,sport events etc

    1 of my family gave me a call saying they bought apple tv but, 200+ GBP
    with xmbc installed or 75GBP without, i thought ide wait a while.
    now seeing the client is available for pc i thought to myself why not just install
    on the pc and stream to tv.. i can get icefilms wich i hear is the best movie
    add-on just havnt figured out how to get us tv on there as my wife is from the states

    Probably frodo version 12 is the latest xbmc version. I didn't test it to see how stable it is.
    About 200+ GBP apple tv, it doesn't worth. You can buy this software, install it on your jailbroken ATV2 and you will have xbmc automatically. (You can even find it for free on tpb :D )
    About, US channels, you have a lot of channels on rtmpgui+ plugin but the problem is you don't have any guarantee that the streaming will be live when you need it. Actually it's a common thing for all this kind of streaming channels plugins.
    You can find a lot of other plugins here.
