    No Purchases of shows on device, no sale here.

    Im not paying £20/$20 a year for EACH of the seasons of the shows i watch to be only able to watch each episode once.

    Apple TV 2.0 = Fail.

    back to DVD/blueray purchases for me.

    None for me, I don't want to take a step backwards.

    Definitely a step backwards. Sure it's cheaper, but really other than Netflix it's a bit of a bust.

    They took half the functionality away, ruined the integration for people that had their own content libraries, and eliminated a way for people to keep content they intend to watch over and over again.

    Oh - and they removed half the output connections, and forgot that 720p was cool 4 years ago.

    I haven't pre-ordered, I'm debating it although I'll probably cave and order 1, it won't replace my current ATV though because sometimes if I want to watch a blu-ray rip or a large movie file I have to actually sync the movie to the ATV for it to play without an annoying stutter.. To lose the ability to sync is a step backwards, imo..

    Did I miss something? You can still buy content on your computer and stream to the new :apple:TV The only thing removed was the internal drive..

    They did increase the frame rate from 24 to 30 on 720p material too.

    Good point.

    I was looking for the old specs. I believe ATV was 802.11g only. Now it will work with 802.11n.

    n might prevent the stuttering.

    I could be wrong.

    Either way, I am fine. I took a different route to solve the stuttering. I hooked both my computer and current ATV to Ethernet. My fingers were crossed until I was sure the new ATV had Ethernet. If it didn't I wouldn't have bought it yet.

    I ordered one. Not everything I was hoping for, but $99 i'm more than willing to take a shot and see how I like it. Be interesting to compare to to my 2 "old" ATVs.

    Hey do you think that I should wait to buy an Apple TV or buy now? I had wanted it to have iOS installed but nonetheless I think it will be a good product and at a cheap price. Do you think that if I buy now then I'll be burned when Apple iOS TV comes out?

    Thanks

    I've been thinking of trying that as well.. I have an airport extreme base station and was considering picking up an airport express to utilize the ethernet port on it, but then the airport express is still pulling from the wireless so I'm not so sure that will help reduce stuttering.. but yeah, I'd much rather have my ATV connected via hardwire if it was feasible, unfortunately it's not an option, ATV is in the living room, computer and networking equipment is all in my office..
