1. Can I upgrade de hdd on the Apple tv? And if, how big can it be?

2. If I use Apple tv's software I can only play .mov files!? Can Boxee and XBMC play other fileformat then .mov? Can I use my iPhone as remote to Boxee and XBMC as I can with the original Apple tv software?

3. Can I use Plex on my Apple tv?

    in case you didn't get it... this is an official Apple forum. discussion of hacking appleTVs and installing someone else's software are likely not to get answered and more than likely to get the post deleted.

    you should post to a non-official apple forum is you really want answers to your questions... the Boxee or XBMC forums might be a good place to start.
