Couple that with their universal Remote HD app [<a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=VoxLcfp5Si4&amp;subid=&amp;offerid=177776.1&amp;type=10&amp;tmpid=3909&amp;RD_PARM1=http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/remote-hd/id310516183?mt=8" target="_blank">affiliate link</a>], and I think it's a winner. When you consider how easy it is to install, and the fact that the software for <a href="http://firecore.com/atvflash" target="_blank">aTV Flash is only $39.95 USD</a>, it really starts to make me lean towards purchasing. Macworld did a <a href="http://www.macworld.com/reviews/product/412561/review/atv_flash_405.html" target="_blank">write up</a> on the install and the functionality of this combination back in January of 2010, and gave it high marks. If it was just to add AirPlay I don't think I would go through the hassle, but it does add additional functionality that my be to your liking. FireCore has a <a href="http://firecore.com/atvflash-black" target="_blank">version for the new black AppleTV</a> also, and at only $19.95 USD.</p>
