    I've been running since beta 1 and airplay mirroring went from shockingly awful stuttering on beta 1 to really damn close to perfect in beta 2

    Only problem i have at the moment is when i click on photo stream, it resets. anyone having this or got it working?

    yes there is a beta, that's why my post was asking if anyone was running the beta.... :rolleyes: and it's obvious i'm running the beta as i said i was using airplay mirroring with success, which isn't on 4.2.2

    was that not obvious? yea i am, to use airplay mirroring you need to have iOS 5 beta, there's a beta for the apple tv as well as the other iOS devices, i'm running the beta on all of them. to use the airplay mirroring you need the beta on the iPad and the Apple TV.............

    anyway i was asking if anyone is running the beta on the Apple TV actually able to use Photostream on it

    Unless you have an ipad is it worth trying out the beta ?

    nope, there's only 2 things the beta gives you for the apple tv, one is airplay mirroring from an iPad, the other is photostream, which for me crashes everytime i try and look at it, but not sure if it's just my device or the beta, thus the question. :)

    As per the release notes, FaceTime is disabled in beta 2. I've not tried iMovie.

    They are available on the original ATV, one of the many features not to transition to iOS on the ATV2.
    To respond to zedsdead, no they haven't.
