If there is any talented coder who has some time to spend,
there is a video of Raspberry PI with airplay support.
since the device is arm powered and running linux,
it should be possible to implement for our TV`s.

http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/564

there developer descripes it in the comments
A small AirPlay service runs in the background and announces itself (using Bonjour) as an Apple TV2.

This means when playing a video on an iOS device, an Airplay menu option becomes available to send the video to that device.

The R-Pi does a little communication with the iOS device and gets an http URL to play. This may point to the iOS device or the internet.

The media player on R-Pi plays the video from that URL.
Next thing,
XBMC has now native airplay support too, maybe someone could find a way to port it?

Get a refurb (59 US-$) or new aTV3 (69 US-$) and install PlexConnect:

It plays any video container you can imagine, airplay works perfect, 1080P. Some Samsung TV's run Plex on them via Samsung smart hub. You wouldnt imagine how much content you can get with Plex Media Server. Head over to this site for more info if interested:
