I have looked at the Apple TV 2 keynote a few times now but have been unable to figure out one thing. Will Apple TV2 support itunes playlists when streaming from an computer on the network? Has anybody understood this? Perhaps the answer is obvious to someone with experience of the old product unfortunatly I have none.

Many thanks

If it works like the first generation appletv, your playlists from your computer will show up. It probably won't let you make playlists though. The user interface seemed to be the same interface as the first gen just simplified so I'd bet that it will work the same.

This may not be true - currently the iPhone Remote and the mobile iPod app let you create playlists on the fly. If Apple TV is really IOS its likely when you create a playlist it saves it to a host computer like the iPhone Remote does currently.
