Once the Make Offer button is included on a listing, Ebay does not allow the seller to remove it. Due to the competitive prices at the moment, we are not accepting offers below the current listed Buy It Now price. In January 2013, these were selling comfortably at £300 until an issue occurred with Ebay's servers.
All Apple TV 2nd Generations were manufactured between September 2010 and March 2012.
DO YOU REALLY WANT TO TAKE A CHANCE WITH YOUR MONEY AND BUY FROM A SELLER THAT OFFERS NO WARRANTY?
Apple TV is professionally jailbroken by our dedicated resident XBMC /
Jailbreaking staff. We are the longest selling business seller of Apple
TV and constantly research and develop our build to stay ahead of all
the latest developments.
We receive many Apple TV boxes in to be
redone that have been jailbroken by the other 'experts' on Ebay and
beyond - the 'spare time' jailbreakers as we like to call them! Of course, you wouldn't send a box back to us if you felt we didn't do a very good job in the first place!
Also, a comment about ATVFlash. We do not like it because you cannot see the code that is installing the content whilst it is installing it. It's amateur. Anything could be happening / going wrong. It is a programme that allows the user to 'maintain' their unit. Invariably, it ends up costing them money when they press the wrong button and wipe the unit.
Also, most sellers are Ebay using ATVFlash are illegally selling
ATVFlash with their units claiming it is worth $29.95 as if they are
giving you something. They are simply breaking the law and doing damage
to the programmers that have spent their precious time developing
ATVFlash. If you don't believe us, try this. Ask any seller if they
will supply you with your own personal login for Firecore (the people that produce
ATVFlash) and watch their price go up by £20!
Used Condition.We offer a full 30 day no-quibble CHANGE OF MIND policy

We say that ATVFlash is inferior because certain features on ATVFlash can cause the user to inadvertently wipe the jailbreak.
Also, most sellers are Ebay using ATVFlash are illegally selling ATVFlash with their units claiming it is worth $29.95 as if they are giving you something. They are simply breaking the law and doing damage to the programmers that have spent their precious time developing ATVFlash. If you don't believe us, try this. Ask the seller if they will supply you with your own personal login for Firecore who produce ATVFlash and watch their price go up by £20!
If you really do want ATVFlash installing then we can do it for you
just let us know as that has a maintenance app that allows the user to
update several underlying programmes. However, we accept NO
responsibility if the Apple TV becomes unuseable because of the
maintenance app. Some sellers on Ebay reckon it is the best thing to
have. We remain Ebay's number one specialist.
Disclaimer regarding Included software: We highly recommend a wired Ethernet connection between the Apple TV and your router to ensure maximum bandwidth. Whilst services can be streamed wirelessly, it is less reliable to do so. It is our understanding that HD content requires approximately 6 - 8Mbps download speed. Standard Definition requires only 2Mbps..
Note: All plugins rely on streaming internet content and you may need to set up free accounts on various websites to allow that content to be streamed. For example, TVCatchup requires a user account as does Offisde Streams. Most require good enough bandwidth and content available online to be able to work.
Due to the nature of this item, we are not responsible for the content streamed to it and neither do we condone piracy so you must satisfy yourself that either you or the sites accessed for streaming have the copyright agreements in place and are entitled to access this content.
You agree to absolve us of any liability in law. From time to time, some plugins may sometimes crash / freeze.
If in doubt - contact us and we will confirm what works for us right now (assuming we use the same plugins) - we are changing configurations and applying the latest updates as they happen to ensure the best build and stability for our customers.
It is impossible for us (or anyone) to test every single plugin, link, repository, user list, content, TV show, Movie in XBMC as there is simply so much content on the internet that it would take a lifetime.
We are not responsible for:- Your internet connection and associated routers and networking setup, any anti-virus programmes you may hve installed which may be blocking content, integrity of the plugins and repositories which enable content to be streamed, accessibility of services at any time, costs of upgrading to a more reliable streaming host (if required - this is YOUR decision alone!), configuration settings, proxy settings, etceteras.
