I am my family's Mac guy so my sis asked me for input re the ATV. I admit I've always ignored it and never needed one. I was rather shocked, and stopped my research, when I found it doesn't even do 4k. She of course just got a 4k and wanted to fill out a budding home theater setup with an ATV. I kinda doubt anyone knows Apple's plans, but is there gonna be 4k for sure? Otherwise I can't really see why she doesn't just go with the Netflix, Amazon, etc apps on her TV, and her cable box. She doesn't want voice control or anything, and already has audio via her phone to speakers. About the only thing she'd want would be showing photos on the HDTV. Can I assume the ATV would at least drive the 4k HDTV in that resolution as a monitor for photos? Otherwise I'll just have her put 'em on a thumbdrive and stick that in the HDTV directly.
