    You can use WiFi or run an ethernet cable from the AppleTV (soon to be called iTV if they can work out the legal bugs with UK's ITV network) to your router.

    Here is a link to the Apple website where you can download the Apple TV Setup Guide -- Apple - Support - Manuals

    Don't forget that you will need an open HDMI connector on your TV for the Apple TV connector.

    Look on the back of your TV and see if it has a connector that looks like this --

    If it does, you are good to go!

    What if it doesn't? I can't get the Apple TV? Shitums, Scott. I would go check now but it is to heavy to turn around ~ I will have to wait.

    I am sure it does ~ it is pretty new!

    Will the new one have Ethernet? I thought not.

    OK, I will admit that the link to the AppleTV guide appears to be the old (current) model so now I'm not sure about the new one having an Ethernet connection. As far as the HDMI connector, even my 2 year old "cheapie" Samsung 720 from Wally World has 2 HDMI inputs.

    "The design changes are significant. The new Apple TV is a quarter of the size of its predecessor and is all black—which will help it blend in with HDTVs and various other entertainment center devices. The device now only sports HDMI, power, optical audio, and ethernet ports (along with a diagnostic USB port). It also keeps the built-in 802.11n wireless networking of the previous generation. Unfortunately, the Apple TV still has a maximum video output of 720p, meaning no 1080p streams from iTunes (or Netflix)."

    Quote from ARS blurb about the ATV.

    http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2...eliminates-storage-and-integrates-netflix.ars

    Most newer sets have an HDMI connection.
    If not you don't need an Apple TV evidently?

    If my Internet connection dies with an old Apple TV I can still watch what I have on it already.

    New Apple TV Out of luck,I can only stream from a computer then.

    Only time will tell but I do not think it even enters Apples mind what we want or need.
    99 cent shows and $4.99 movies we rent is what it is after.
    Steve even said it would be cheaper to rent the same ones over and over than buying them.

    Go Figure?
