Just caved in and bought one of these bad boys (I was bored in work and when I am bored in a shop full of gadgets... I tend to get the debit card out) Haven't opened the box yet but I am excited to do so!!

I have to say it is really cool so far :yes: Works extremely quickly and is good for streaming videos. Not impressed with Netflix's selection so probably won't be extending past the free trial, even though it's only a few quid per month.

Mum and Dad don't know I've bought it yet, so I wonder what they'll say... :unsure: :rotfl:

OK, so what is an Apple TV?

See this (http://www.apple.com/appletv/what-is/) John. It's basically a small gadget that plugs into the back of your TV and allows you to rent Netflix or iTunes movies. Stream video or audio to your TV from your computer wirelessly. Browse Flickr, or Youtube.

All kinds of things. :thumbsup:

Tom (:macwave:... wish my TV had hdmi ports)

can you link via a non hdmi cable? and if so, what?
the reason im asking is dave pays for nhl tv which streams through the computer but he would like to watch and record on the big tv some matches :)

Not as far as I know. Apple TV requires HDMI.

There may be alternatives that don't require HDMI though. I believe Roku (http://www.roku.com/) is one of them and they were talking about having them available in the UK sometime early this year but I don't know where that stands. However, without HDMI, it would be standard definition only.

Tom (:macwave:... I gotta buy a new TV!)

You can also stream photos or videos from your iphone or ipad, and I think you can also use it with your kindle

Does anyone know if the US version is the same as the UK version? Wondering if it might be worth picking one up next week?

I sooooo want one of these gadgets!

I just wish my old, current television would go ahead and die so I could replace it with a clear conscience. :sigh:

Tom (:macwave:... perhaps if I left it out in the rain? :unsure:)

it's always the same isn't it, want something to die and it lives on and on and on. Love something and need it and it gives up and cokes it! :point:

You can connect Apple TV to a DVI using an HDMI to DVI cable. I use a DVI monitor.
