My daughter moved away with the ATV, so I have no idea if these links 
will help/work:



If you are not looking for full frontend functionality, you could try 
the internal XBMC mythtv:// protocol support by adding the backend as a 
XBMC video source. This page has a good writeup. 
. Since you already have XBMC installed, skip down to the paragraph that 
starts "Go into the Videos section and select ‘Add Source’ from the 
menu" and continue at that point.
