As for playback, IIRC the AppleTV is essentially a screenless iPad. My iPad
3 played back H.264 recordings just fine by using ExPlayer HD and feeding
it to the native player, which accelerated the file. Haven't tried the
HD-PVR since virtualizing my backend which is still .24, so I don't know if
that has changed.
