    I don't have Netflix either so the newer model doesn't pose as a greater upgrade to me.

    as much i would love to upgrade, but being a previous appletv owner i won't for a few reason, u can only connect via HDMI to ur televison, with my older model i have a choice of HDMI or competent. my 160GB HD is ok for now, i already use my mac mini to host all my movies, music & tv shows & use appletv to stream it & save on HD space on my appletv HD.

    like a previous person said on here, i would love an upgrade for netflix & i believe it should play ok since i have boxee on mine & it steams very well.

    Rentals only? F that in the A. I'm a "downloader" of multimedia and I don't rent. Until I can stream ANY file I want (I can live with PC side live transcoding)I think I'll hold off on this device.

    If you cant update the last model then I guess they will do the same when the next one comes out. How lame.

    Will this stream movies from a network drive? I got a Netgear Stora full of movies and would like a nice interface to stream it to my TV. For some stupid reason a banned xbox360 cant play AVIs. No reason to get a new xbox360 as it still plays copied games so no loss there.

    My sentiments exactly.

    I can stream and sync anything I want to my Apple TV. I'll probably still get it because let's face it, that new Apple TV is one gorgeous and sexy little piece of art.
