    I'm thinking of getting one of these bad boys, but I'm a little confused as to the resolutions it supports from the Tech Specs:

    OK, so I get that it supports h.264 640x480 and 320x240.

    What I'm confused about is the 1280x720 (which is what I would want to do, if not 1080). Does this mean it can only output 1280x720 in 24 FPS, and does it ONLY support h.264?

    That's the way I read it (only H.264 and only 24fps at that resolution).

    Thanks - I'm thinking the best way to interpret things is "If it plays in iTunes, it plays on Apple TV."

    Another question: Concerning the 40 GB HDD - does that act as only a temporary cache for movies and such (i.e. start streaming the movie and then store the rest of it while you play.).
