    well i like to listen to music when i play games. i just got apple tv, and its great, but if your listening to music through it, then you cant use the tv for anything else, correct? i would like to be able to wirelessly listen to music, but also play games at the same time. i dont think this is possible, but just wanted to check.

    The limitation is not really with the ATV2, its more with tne TV or reciever (if you are using one) setup in regards to outputing more than one input at the same time.

    I guess a real simplistic way, but not ideal set up, is to have music play from home theater speakers and have the PS3 game sounds come from the TV speakers.

    We have the optical audio out from the Atv going to our home theater and the wii connected to the TV. So I would assume a setup like this would work.
