I want to buy an Apple TV. I really really want to, talk me into it. I live in an apartment complex where Comcast basic cable and HBO are provided. I have formed my own account in order to get the sports packages and HD-DVR. I want to drop this, I think I may dislike Comcast more than Microsoft...but that's another story. In my room I have a cable jack and a actually have a box, which I never want to do. I'm looking at getting an eyeTV hybrid to hook up directly out of the wall jack (this will work correct). Then, I'm looking to just stream from my Macbook over to the Apple TV in the living area. My questions arise when I question if all of this will work flawlessly with my cable jack in my room and the Apple TV in the living room (I have a Linksys 54g router). My next question is I want to rid myself of all of my DVD's. I have about 50 left of my original 200 that I watch pretty regularly. How would I get them to look the best on my Apple TV WITH THE ABILITY TO COPY THE DVD LATER? I've been starting with the most watched ones and doing them at the Apple TV preset, but this won't look good will it, with the Apple TV preset. I'm at a loss here. I know I need an external drive, any suggestions, because I only have a 120GB drive in my new MacBook. Help me out with any suggestions as to what I should do to accomplish this. As always, I appreciate all of the help I have found on this website.
