    Apple has released a new update for the Apple TV tonight. Apple TV owners can download the new updates from their Apple TV's by accessing the "Update Software" menu option in their Apple TV's settings.

    Apple has not released any documents about the changes found, and a cursory review of the menus have shown no major changes.

    Apple last released an update to the Apple TV in October which incorporated a number of new iTunes 8.0 features including the Genius playlist features.

    [response to off-topic post that's been deleted]
    That article completely misses the point and focus Apple has for the :apple:TV.

    I agree that Apple's focus is too narrow and it's the consumer that suffers for it. But the fact is they consider it nothing more than a portal to their service. They consider use of their products in ways that don't benefit Apple further to be detrimental to their bottom line. Even if they are actually limiting their sales in the end. End of story. It's the company culture. Thanks Mr. Jobs.

    It woud be nice if you could use the iPhone remote as a replacement for the little white one instead of having to swap back and forth...

    Who what????

    Anyways. The notes are interesting. Does that mean we finally get volume controls?

    Perhaps we could see remote control ability over wifi with iPhone????

    Huh?

    You mean more than what the remote app on the iPhone already gives you?

    Because you can already use the iPhone to control the appleTV and pick and choose which TV, Movies or music you want to watch or listen to.

    I'll upgrade tonight and test the new functionality with my iPhone and see how it affects aTV (and Boxee).

    What About Hulu!

    Or Streaming Video Podcast
    Or Web Access

    This Thing Is Not Living Up Too Its Potential

    Looks Like Boxee Tv Still Is Better And Free

    I've installed it and had a quick play - the only thing I noticed was a bit of lag in the menus

    Volume Adjustment

    Look in the settings menu - audio/video. There is a tab to turn volume control "on". Only works when listening to music.

    So which part is sarcasm?

    (if the boxee part wasn't: were you able to rehack the AppleTV?)
