I run rarzombie on the computer which actively scans the download directory for new releases and unrars them.

the WD just goes over SMB and reads the unpacked MKV's.

very low-tech solution, but for me its perfect. I can sit down infront of the tv, navigate to what i want to watch, and press play.
I have a similar setup, although a little less complicated.

By using two programs (free) you basically build yourself an internet PVR. Any show you want to view, you type it in to the software and it will keep track of episodes and auto-request a DL to your NZB app. When setup correctly, both program work together to give you a hassle free and hands off experience. Been running it for years now.

Here is a nice guide/explanation of the systems at work if anyone is interested. Of course to use it you will need to move away from the free "torrent" world and step up to a newsgroup/usenet provider (if you already have one then be prepared to love them even more).

For something that sold for $99 i think that is a bit much considering you could do everything yourself for free if you took the time. But I guess if you don't mind paying someone $270 for their time then it could be worth it for you, i'd rather just do it myself, but that's me.

Nope ATV2 hasn't been available for a long time now. And since they're the only ones that can be Jailbroken that's why the price of them is so high.

I could never bring myself to pay that much for one, especially since it's only 720P.
