XBMC compiled with Crystal HD support is now available from unofficial nightly builds

TheQuestor from xbmc forums has announced that his xbmc for osx nightly builds now includes crystal hd support!

Forum post found here.
And downloads found here.

You will still need to compile, or download a precompiled version from somewhere, crystal hd lib and kext to get it working. Xbmc will detect the presence of said lib/kext and enable crystalhd rendering as an option if found.

Follow this post from the xbmc forum on how to use the nightly build together with the atv-xbmc-launcher. You will have to install the crystal hd lib/kext as well to enable the crystalhd rendering option from within xbmc.

Enjoy Apple TV with 1080p support :)
