    Is the current Apple TV able to achieve 1080p with a software/firmware upgrade from Apple?

    No, at least not from Apple.

    The folks at XBMC are looking into whether this is a hardware limitation or a software limitation, but at this point, no one knows. Apparently, the Apple TV can decode 1080p files but it is not possible to output anything above 720p.

    Bottom line: I wouldn't count on it.
