Hi Everyone, I wanted to post my feelings on the new Apple TV. I had been using the older Apple TV and was very pleased with the performance of it. However whenever a company comes out with a new version, usually it performances better or has more features. Well I own a Pioneer HD Plasma 50 inch TV and it displays 1080i. With my old Apple TV, it allows me to display the Apple TV content at a full 1080i which is a awesome picture. I use a HDMI hookup with audio cables with the older Apple TV. It works great. I stream everything so I don't use the hard drive inside the Apple TV. Now to the New Apple TV. It is smaller that is great, but there are no audio connections at all which forces you to use the HDMI to hear audio. But if your TV receiver does not allow the sound with your HDMI then you are left with no sound only picture. But the biggest complaint that matters to me is it only wants to connect at 720p option only. There is no adjustment to make or force it to go to 1080i. To me the picture quality between is 720 and 1080 is a big deal to me. So I took it off my system and put back my original Apple TV. I would have liked to have the Netflex Movie Rentals but not that big of deal. So I will either keep it until I upgrade my TV or put it on Ebay for $89. I am deeply disappointed in how this turned out. So with no sound from my Pioneer HD Plasma TV, and no 1080i is a no brainer for me to not install the new Apple TV. Just to let you know, I am aware that you have to configure each unit connected to your TV, like DVR, VCR, ATV, etc, that you must tell it to use the HDMI connection for audio, which I did and still no sound in any of my units, so I am forced to use analog audio unfortunately. Maybe it will work better when I buy my next TV. Mine is about 7 years old. Pioneer HD Plasma model # PDP5045 retail price MSRP $9000.00 but of course they came down in price and at the time I found mine on the internet for $5000.00. Thank God, now they all came down in price. Anyway this is my opinion of the new APPLE TV. On a 1-5 star rating I would have to rate it a 2 out of 5. On my older ATV I would rate it 4 out of 5 stars. Big difference.
