    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:

    See this 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:

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

    There may be alternatives that don't require HDMI though. I believe Roku 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.

    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:)

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