  • Apple Tv. The new little black ones

    Anyone using one of these? I like the idea of Netflix as well as being able to view stuff from my Mac's or iPhone on my screen.

    General experiences and opinions appreciated..

    I don't even own an HDtv yet. A coworker of mine has the Apple TV and in fact, we were visiting last night and he was running his itunes through it. He also uses Netflix with it and loves it.

      I really like mine. I have Netflix which for $8.00 a month gives me all the movies and TV shows I don't pay cable for. It links with the iphone and MacMini to play music. For mr the one time $99 purchase price pays dividends down the road.

            The new ones do 1080p as well. The only bummer is they are £99 in the UK. Heavily overpriced by comparison with the US which has kind of put me off. I don't get that. The ratio between Apple prices in the US and the UK aren't that steep with any of their other products??

            Netflix has arrived in the UK recently but they are mainly old movies and program's. Different from the US?

                HDMI2
                Optical audio
                10/100BASE-T Ethernet
                Built-in IR receiver
                Micro-USB (for service and support)

                Straight off the website.. It would sit next to my Apple base station router so I would probably hard wire it in although wifi would work and lose a cable..

                  The HDMI sounds intriguing.

                    I think I will purchase one of these when I move to Canada in a few months.

                      How well does the 1080P compare to say a well authored Blu-ray in 1080P?

                        Dunno.. I haven't bought one yet.. Still thinking about adding yet another bit of technology to my house..

                          We use it for:
                          Netflix primarily.
                          The rare purchase of a just on video movie via iTunes.
                          YouTube vids (Lots of stuff for our 2 year old son that's not on Netflix)
                          Streaming photos & vids from iPhones or iPads

                          Love it.

                            Looks like something else for me to purchase.

                              I used mine to rip all my DVDs, store them on iTunes and declutter the living room. I occasionally rent a film from iTunes but haven't bothered with a Netflix subscription. Great device - almost invisible hidden behind the TV stand. Good for family photos, too. Mines the older 720p version but that makes no difference for ripping DVDs.
