    I didn't read anywhere about it saying no 1080p streaming available? Are we assuming this or am I missing something?

    720P only, just like the original AppleTV.


    If new AppleTV had apps, I would have bought it in a heartbeat. In fact, I was ready to buy it (based on the incorrect rumors).

    Apps would have made this a killer device. Still not understanding why Apple wouldn't go that route. This is what we really want.

    If it's all streaming then why is there USB? Will we be able to play content off of an external Hard drive?

    I have q fee qyrions, but since the Apple website has crashed in my iPad 4 times in 2 minutes, I think I'll ask them here.

    These Netflix movies and TV shows we rent, are we able to download them onto our PC? (Since there is no longer an internal HDD? Also, the movies on your comouterr, do they have t use the mo4 container? All my 300+ movies are mkv!

    Thanks

    I think it's cool.... Just don't think it's amazing. I really hate the idea of "renting" tv shows, I really don't mind commercials that much! And no storage? That's just lame. People like collecting libraries of media, at least I do.

    Can I use it to stream the videos I download off of thepiratebay, that would be very useful.... And $99, not bad... Or spend that money on a slingbox?... Hmmm

    That's a micro-USB isn't it? Not standard.

    Yeah, that's OK for streaming. But I wonder if it will choke on a 1080p or high bitrate 720p MKV or M2TS. The current Apple TV does

    This thing needs more CPU power, along with the announced added features

    I have the 160gb apple tv and I like it. I have all my movies,music,and photos on it. I'm actually thinking about keeping it and buying the new one for another room.

    The only way I can see this being possible is to have that external hooked up to your PC and stream with Apple TV.

    I have almost 2 TB worth of content that I watch on my HDTV via either my Xbox360 or my Vaio Notebook. Lately, I've been using Hulu desktop instead of watching cable (which I'm still paying for ONLY for live sports events - Football, WSOP, etc.)

    This product is an 80% fail for me... I am NOT going to pay to rent TV shows and I barely watch movies as it is. I'm still buying it since its only $99 and seems like it will have a much easier interface for streaming for the non-techies in my family.

    The ONLY feature I'm digging about this product is the AirPlay integration. That seems pretty cool, and practical.

    Here's to hoping for a jailbreak... the rumor regarding using iOS apps was one that was an instant buy for me...

    I don't think anyone quite yet knows the answer to that BUT I will tell you what I use.
    I use cinematube. It plays basically everything I throw at it. MKV, iso, bluray iso, avi etc etc.

    If you can hook it up wired to your network it's great. My brother does this and streams all his stuff from his computer and uses playon for webservice stuff.
    cinematube doesn't come with netflix and such native like appletv does it's mostly for playing files.

    Roku I hear is good if you want streaming stuff too and cheaper than the new appletv.

    But the fact that this thing CAN'T do 1080p is bs. I understand limits in online streaming but in network from your comp or using a HDD you should have that option. It's pretty, the interface is slick BUT I think there are better options.

    All I want it something to stream my MKV, AVI, MP4 videos with. PS3 Media Server is too unreliable half the time. I am not converting all my movies into iTunes either. Hmpfffffff

    Apple TV can be easily replaced with a $40 cable from BestBuy. Hook your TV up to your comp and presto!

    Not everyone's computer is in the same room as their tv they like to watch movies on.

    Plex can. That's why I'm waiting to see if it is a true iOS that will allow AppStore apps.

    "Video formats

    H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
    MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
    Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format"

    these are the specs from apple website. no avi support? wtf? everything supports avi. Huge Fail! this will fail like the original apple tv.
