No you ...
No you won't...it is cloud based. You want to watch a movie or show you pay for it then it just adds it to your account...you want to watch it you watch it...it should have a small amount of flash memory to be able to rewind/load and also FF/load. All it needs is about 8GB of memory in order to be able to accommodate one movie at a time (which is all you could possibly watch anyway. You watch your movie, then when your done it deletes the residual data.....much like how netflix works.

I do all this on my PS3, so they will have to come up with a little bit more to get me to buy an apple tv...but if you don't have a media streamer yet...for $99....in HD...you can't beat that!!

Ok, I have a couple of questions. If I buy 2 Apple TV's and install them on two different TV's in my house, now since my iTunes will be streaming the feed would it be able to be shown on both TV's at the same time? If it's on the Wifi it looks like it would work.
Yes you select multiple speakers in itunes on pc or mac then select each itv
I have 6 LCD's in the house, I can see all kinds of options.
apple tv and i pad problems
i have recently purchased and ipad 2 ,air port express, and apple TV hoping to use the remote app for the pad but having problems syncing remote app to Apple TV.
I noticed the icon on itunes next to the genius icon which allows you to select apple TV computer or air port express i would assume that you would choose airport express icon?
I have also found that the onetime it worked it was very slow the airport express was no more than 20 feet away in a different bedroom, my thoughts are to run a LAN cable plug the airport express right next to the apple TV unit hoping to improve performance.
any thoughts guys would be much appreciated
If you want to control the atv and there's a atv option why would you assume the airport express is the correct option? Those options are destinations for when you use AirPlay, so if you want to listen/watch something on your atv then select it, want to listen on your airport express select that.
As to actually using the remote to control your atv, are you signed in to homesharing on the atv, iTunes and the remote app using the same account. Also is your iPad connected to the same network as your atv?
Guys this is a old thread I think I will setup new forum for apple tv after consultation with owners as it is part of the iPad, iPhone solution what do you think
Do you mean a new subforum here, or a totally separate forum like the iPhone one?
I don't think you would get the traffic to warrant a separate forum and as a subforum, I would suggest it includes apple tv airport express and other airplay hardware.
