    Anyone try 1080P on it with the new update yet? I wanna try but just ripping and encoding a 1080p movie is gonna take forever.

    720p works just fine at 25fps or whatever the default is for Blu-ray, and always has. I have a bunch of 720p at 25fps and they work great.

    Software updates can't fix poor hardware...

    Ummm did I miss a hardware update? The appletv will never run 1080p with its current hardware. The 1080p up-conversion has been there for months. Additionally, the appletv has always played 720p at 25FPS. It works great!

    Well, it can let you transfer it at any rate. Consider all of the hacks let you try to play it, which is hilarious since they do not utilize the gpu for decoding, which apple does. Might want to read the specs on the gpu which is obviously how the atv is able to decode even 720p 24fps hi profile h.264. Certainly it's not done only with the measly main cpu and the xbmc devs have acknowledged as much. But, I digress .....

    ripping @ 720p

    For those people ripping at 720p @ 25fps what are you using to rip and how large is your average file?

    Blu-ray discs ripped with AnyDVD HD, then transcoded with Handbrake to 720p. File sizes range from over 3 gb to under 7 gb.

    Yes I knew this and obviously there was no hardware upgrade, smart ass. I was not aware that 1080p functionality on the Apple TV was a hardware limitation. That is why I asked the question.
