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.

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