    This may sound Like overkill but I already have a Vizio with Via Apps. Bought ATV for iPad and cloud support.

    It works great for AirPlay. If I didn't have ATV2 I would get one. mirroring programs resolution is only so so, let me know how it works with your new unit.

    Sorry, been gone awhile. We have a 50" Panasonic Plasma 1080i, 120mhz. I want to get another apple tv or Roku to take with traveling. I spend 4 nights a week in hotels and watch HULU+, Crackle, and Netflix when I get a chance. The Ipad works great when wired to the TV (HDMI) but you have to go to it to pause, change, etc. I know it's Lazy but I would love to have a $100.00 HDMI remote control. Roku plays HULU+ but no mirror function, or iPhone app. But mirroring Hulu to the apple tv loses some resolution. If you can, let me know what streaming HULU to your TV2 looks like. sorry for being so long winded.

    Good stuff to know. Get a 3 and use 2 on the go. Or if you can find one and don't care buy a cheaper 2. Is yours jailbroken?

    Upset cuz mine actually arrived at my apartment at 1213 on 3/15. A day earlier because it was shipped next day about 5 hours from my house. I'll have reviews up Monday evening though.

    Not jail broke yet.. That is what I'm pondering, jailbreak the 2 to watch HULU on the road and leave the 3 at home. While home I can watch HULU+ on the Wii. If the resolution is good while streaming I can travel with the 3 and stream HULU and Crackle to it. All this to watch TV, pretty sad, but when sitting alone in a Hotel it keeps me out of trouble.

    Totally understand. When I move, it would be awesome to bail on a potential cable bill.

    It does not have crackle or Hulu, but I have those built in on my TV. My network is acting up so I haven't been able to do home sharing and AirPlay, so I haven't been able to experiment with its full capabilities.
