The new apple tv is totally frame skipping, dropping frames, stuttering, whatever you want to call it. It's not my network. It not files that are converted/created incorrectly. These are files that played fine on the old Apple TV yesterday and today are skipping on the new Apple TV. It's subtle, but it's there. Every few seconds it skips a frame.. or a frame freezes for an extra frame or two and then it catches up. This is unacceptable for a home theatre product - hobby or not. The old apple tv doesn't do it and neither do other devices like the popcorn hour. If apple's not going to fix it I guess I'll return the units. Oh and I've heard this from my friends who just got new apple tv's also. So it's not just me. I would think this would be a huge topic of discussion on forums like this and also broken on all the rumor blogs like engadget and giz. I'm a video professional and maybe my 'trained eye' can see it and the average joe can't? Really? It's very annoying. I can't watch tv or movies like that. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that files are now streamed over home sharing instead of the way they used to be streamed. Surely they're going to fix this....????
