    i noticed that the apple TV is equipped with a wired internet cable port. I have this is on my laptop as well. will using this impact the quality?

    I heard somebody say that using wireless will decrease the picture quality while the hard wire will improve. True or False?

    Wont improve quality, may reduce buffering time, if your wireless is struggling.

    Ethernet transfer from the router to Appe tv is almost twice as fast so movies load faster. However if your modem is not in same room as apple tv it is better to use wifi. A fast n router is advised

    I have an AirPort Extreme router in my home office which is on first floor. Apple TV on second floor. Connects wirelessly. Picture quality is excellent. Movies load quickly.
