OK, so it seems that Apple has decided that I don't need 1080p video. They are half right, since I don't currently use my first generation Apple TV for video, only lossless music and pictures. However, on the first generation Apple TV you can set the output to 1080p, even if it's incapable of playing video at that resolution (I assume). The reason I do that is for pictures. I like viewing my travel photos at 1920x1080 on a 50" plasma TV. I wouldn't want to be doing that at only 1280x720. The loss of detail would be unacceptable. As would the fact that the dimensions differ from the native resolution of the TV (which would also be a problem with video since the TV would have to be upscaling all the time to fit the panel). So I was wondering if anyone has seen anything (yet) to indicate that the new Apple TV can be set to 1080p output at all, or if it's permanently 720i/p.
