DVR finally coming to AppleTV?

It sounds like Apple is working on something...

interesting. Something to keep an eye on. Not getting hopes up though.

Yep. Maybe some "Tivo" like features for the AppleTV. That'd be pretty banging, even more so if it took Cable Cards and coaxial input

also this might open up adding external harddrives? or they could be hoping that the 160g version sold better. either way, it could be a bonus.

I personally find the AppleTV pointless without cablebox/DVR functionality.

It would be a nice middle finger to NBC.

sorry, you cant buy nbc shows, but you can download em for free!

syncing back to computer and putting shows on your ipod would be the best, although i would buy a 160 GB in a heartbeat even if it couldnt sync back

For me the best development I think they should do is

AppleTV + Mac Mini + AEB = In AppleTV size, and Mac Mini height. For Mac mini price.

I'm hoping when they do this they do it right....

It needs to support not only cable card but IP TV as well as the possible inclusion of a way to use it with satellite networks with HD.

The only way I would accept otherwise is if apple starts giving me HD downloads in at LEAST 720p and gives me a way to get my NBC fix on.

I would love to see a DVR option for this. It's what I've been waiting on for the appleTV.

This, btw, is why I believe we'll never see DVR functionality build in to the aTV - everyone has different expectations of what *needs* to be there, 'or I won't buy it'. It's pretty hard to accommodate everyone on the market...

And I could be wrong, but I don't think we'll see any sort of unified standard popping up that would allow a single input to cater to most user's DVR wants (aside from recording off of a component input, or the like, so long as there's no HDCP)...

Kind of an interesting take on things.

I think tuaw had reported this yesterday. Funny to see it removed so quickly.
