I recently saw that the AppleTv is offered for $249 refurbished and am tempted to get it at some point. I have a Samsung HDTV 1080i with 16:9 resolution and a dvi connection. I will be streaming from a 20" iMac using the Airport Extreme N basestation. I think I will be primarily watching DVD's ripped with handbrake. To those of you who have this, is this worth buying? What is your daily experience with it? Do you find that this has revolutionized video watching like the ipod has done with music? I saw the demo at the local Apple Store and the movie playing looked awful - very grainy, but the menus were impressive. What will a ripped DVD look like on my display? Thanks for any responses.
