    I do not currently have an Apple TV but I am very interested in the upcoming new version of it so I have a few questions that might seem stupid but I really don’t know a thing about this stuff.
    Can I move this device from TV to TV around the house and if so, how difficult is it to do?
    I thought a HDMI cable carried both video and sound, so what is the optical audio connect on the back for?
    Will this device work with any router? (I have a Netgear WDN3700)
    Will this device stream from movies directly from iTunes on a PC? I don’t have a Mac.
    What other things should a completely novice person be made aware of?
    THANKS!

    1. Yes, it shouldn't be, as it is quite small.

    2. The optical out is most likely for using it with a dedicated surround sound receiver.

    3. It should, but there is no comprehensive study I know of, which has tested every router with the Apple TV.

    4. Yes. http://www.apple.com/appletv/specs.html

    5. I don't know.
