Anything good coming for ATV2?

The biggest thing is that 3rd party apps will natively be allowed to used Airplay. This means that AirVideo and Stream to Me will be able to do on-the-fly transcoding on your computer, stream the transcoded video to your iPhone or iPad and then relay them to the AppleTV.
This sounds like it wouldn't work well, but I've been doing exactly this with my jailbroken Iphone 4 and AirVideoEnabler, and getting great results, so I expect that it will be at least as good when done without all the hacks in the middle.
I also expect that some games and presentation programs will begin to take advantage of this, though I think the lag will prevent most games from utilizing it in a way that would be useful.
