I have it on my aTV, iPad, iPhone, and my mac

With the latest beta of XBMC it works MUCH better. Its still a little small but you get the hang of it pretty quick.

Did you restart xbmc after installing the repo and before installing the plugin?

---------- EDIT ----------

1Channel XBMC plugin - IceFilms Alternative (Update 02-01-2012) - SiNfuL iPhone
and
USTVnow XBMC plugin - Live TV on aTV - SiNfuL iPhone are good to have as well.

I keep subscriptions to threads that i start so i can respond pretty quick to help people out. There is nothing worse than having a problem, posting it on a thread, and not getting a response for hours if not days.

I could use some help. Here's what I do step by step
1. I use WINSCP to SSH into my AppleTV,
2. Dropped the downloaded zip file into /var/mobile/
3. Open XBMC
4. Go to System > Settings > Add-ons > “Install From ZIP”
5. The zip file I've added is not there

When I SSH back into the AppleTV the file shows that's it there, but still does not show up.

Any help would be appreciated!
