    Now, before I take a flaming for this - I know there is no app store for the ATV, and there might not ever be one... that said.

    I want a high quality VNC-type app for the ATV. I like being able to stream a video file from my mac to the ATV - that is a cool feature, but imagine if you could use the ATV to duplicate or extend your laptop screen to the TV wirelessly. I imagine there might be a bandwidth problem here, but it would be great if, for example, I could walk into a conference room, startup my keynote, and say, send to the apple tv, connected to this projector.... all without wires...

    Thoughts? Is there a technical reason this might not be feasible?

    EDIT - I suppose these could be two seperate features, the Keynote and the VNC - I just thought VNC might be the most universal way to make it happen....

    I think you mean VNC, not VLC. ;)

    Well, if it works on an iPhone (e.g. iTeleport) then there is no technical reason why it can't work on the ATV, it just needs an App Store... over to you Apple....
