I've seen inconsistent posts on this - some say yes, some say no...

I get my :apple:TV on Tuesday. It shipped from China after the Take 2 release. Assuming it's a new box, I'll be able to tell you what's in it.:D

I suspect that the "old" and "new" will be as close as brothers.

Packaging changes, maybe, but if they would have planned a change like a larger harddrive, additional hardwired decoder, faster, shinier, etc, why would they not have announced that at the same time as the software upgrade? That would have been the time to tout anything appletv related on the near horzon, I would think.

With the inventory backed up as rumored, we may not see a legitimately different package for some time, but hopefully Jimmydreams can tell us differently.

N..

Biggest thing I would like to know is if by chance they switched from Pata to Sata drives. I know the price cut are suspected to be subsidized by the rentals but I am wondering otherwise. We are happy with our Rev A with Take 2 updates in the house but a thought to one in the car is in the mix and there we would want to have a much much larger harddrive. Sata opens us up to 320GB plus, which is still less than our iTunes collection but it gets us close. :D

When I get my box on Tuesday, how will I know the difference between these two drives?
