Title says it all really, will I lose any features by buying one in the States?

Interesting. I dont think some of the the 3rd party features will work in Europe though.

Which 3rd party apps you referring to?

There is no netflix, and the plug needs switching over otherwise identical (I think) - I have JB'd it and have read netflix can be set up with vpn but I dont need that feature - I have Lovefilm with my PS3

Using a US version of ATV2, works fine here in Japan.
I have accounts for JP, US, AUS, UK all work fine.

I bought one in the U.S. last month and brought it home to the UK. It'll work fine, all you need is an adapter for the plug. Readily available at any travel accessory shop, you can pick one up at the airport when you land.

If you use your UK iTunes account you won't see Netflix option as this is disabled for the UK. If you have U.S. account you will see Netflix but you need to conigure a router with VPN access to the U.S. to get this to work.

Is there a way to do this with an Airport Extreme?
