Any practical use for Apple TV 1st Gen?

So I was cleaning up in the basement and found two 1st Gen Apple TV's (one in original packaging never used!)
Looking online it seems like the only practical use for them is Kodi? or converting to use as a file server.
Any other suggestions as to what these can be used for nowadays? I also have a few 2nd and 3rd gen Apple Tvs than are getting very light usage.
Mac mini 1.83 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
17" G4 iMac 800 Mhz
G4 Cube 500 Mhz
17" Cinema Display
40 GB Apple TV

Sealed in packaging? Sell it as a collectible and buy something that's actually useful for the task w/ modern content.
