I was really hoping to play with this today but I didn't get a chance. At
any rate, there are a couple other relevant links... First, somebody was
able to push AirPlay to XBMC back in December but I'm not sure if the code
is available, or if this is that code, or what:

Second and potentially cooler is a hack called AirVideoEnabler that lets you
push non-Apple app video from a jailbroken iOS device to an AirPlay
device.If it supports Netflix then this is a potentially easier way to get
Netflix on a Linux box. Have any Myth devs looked at the Totem plugin yet to
see if there's an easy way to port it to MythTV?

I plan on jailbreaking my iPod this weekend to try out the XBMC buid, and
hopefully will mess with AirVideoEnabler as well.
