Going back to what to what wdtvhub said, most of the stuff installed is directed at the US market. apple do this too, On the apple tv 2. I was given this to test / review, and they never asked for it back.
its been jailbroken, and has xmbc and atv black installed. most of it is directed at the us market. ive had it a year, and i think its only been switched on twice in that time, once when i tested it, and the 2nd when i had a power cut, and it switched itself on when the power come back.
on it i can hide the unwanted items, i mean i would rather paint my mrs toe nails than watch baseball. it would be a good idea that on the hub these addons could be removed or at least hidden.. well it would be even nicer if they actually all worked., But as its a device that has been released internationally, maybe have firmwares for each region. Or even better still. bring out two versions. one with and one without.
