    Instead of having a server convert the video and possibly downgrade the quality , xbmc plays the video natively. Also you don't need a beefy server to convert the videos. It could just be a simple file server or perhaps in the future a USB attached harddrive.

    Though many users use Netflix and airflick to stream videos for my Apple TV, but this is a good news for much more users especially those xbox owners.
    This "decoding our 1080p HD content, complete with hardware acceleration, on Apple's ARM silicon, and with only occasional choppiness." is very nice.

    The only choppiness I get i with my HD wmv files of 1080p. It plays my 1080p mkv with h.264 codecs without issue. My one complaint is that the output of the Apple TV is only 720p in spite of the video resolution of the file being played.

    i dont think that is true.. i dont think the apple tv dumbs down ur 1080p video that you streaming thru xbmc

    natively the apple tv plays 720 with itunes videos and things

    but when u jailbreak it and push 1080 videos to it it pushes that same 1080 thru to your tv

    No this is not correct. The Apple TV is hardware limited to 720p. In fact, my television will display what the source video resolution is and Apple TV only outputs 720p.
