a vision of the future? how soon could apple pull off what i am about to describe....? an Apple TV box that could do the following: you choose the programs you would like to see from a menu, you no longer have to actually subscribe to satellite or cable tv. just as with tivo, you can specify how many episodes to keep, etc. several shows you want airing at the same time? no longer a problem. the servers at apple record everything of every channel, so they can download to your apple tv anything you want. you have 7 tv's in your house? no problem here either. a small device, lets call it the apple tv receiver, hooks up to your tv set and speaks wirelessly to the hub, serving up whatever that viewer wants to see. and lets say you have nothing waiting on the server to watch, the apple tv can stream to you any channel you want in real time. who else wants this?
