I've been given an ATV2.
Shall I bother do something with it or just toss it in the recycle bin?
I'm not in the apple ecosystem, thus most probably I will try to install Kodi if is worth the effort.

That is not a bad idea.
Although, I could use it as a media player. I suspect the original firmware would only play things through itunes and not from a local nas. I will browse around for the jailbreak and if its too much it would post an add.

Depending on your local Nas you could install a Plex server on the Nas and install a Plex client on the Apple TV.

Not sure if es file explorer is available on Apple TV but you could use something similar to access the media from your Nas also.

There is also a few IPTV apps available for iOS so you could use it for IPTV
