The good news/bad news is that there a lot of PodCasts that are available for free that are 720p. While the content may not be scinitillating, I find some of it enjoyable. There are "travel" oriented 'casts that do a nice job of making you feel like being there, and some adventure ones, too.Anyone know when Apple is going to start releasing HD movies for rent or purchase through iTunes? I love my ATV but wished the trailers and movies purchased online where pristine in visual quality. Thanks
Back in my youth, there were people with "golden ears." Those people were employed by Bose, etc., as being able to discern the subtle differences between different speaker configurations. Nonetheless, those of us without golden ears could tell there might be a difference but, ultimately, it made no difference to us.I am not so sure Apple TV is the best option for displaying HDTV.
I deliver to ciletns, and I am thinking of ging the TVisto route instead,
for 1080i support.
I own a 50 inch Sony SXRD and can see a difference. The mac podcasts are in HD and they look really good.720p, 1080i, 1080p and even 480p can all appear to be the same. It's really dependent on your chosen method of delivery(your tv).
You'd be hard pressed to get anyone to tell the difference between any of the above resolutions on a 15inch screen. But on a 50inch screen there would be dramatic difference between the high and low end.
I personally own a 32inch screen and for my eyes at that size, there is little/no difference between 720p, 1080i or 1080p.
So you can tell the difference between 1080p and 1080i?It's all about the screen and how close you sit to it. Sit 50' away from the world's greatest 50" TV, and you won't be able to tell.
The bigger the picture (via screen size or sitting closer), the more likely you are to be able to tell the difference.
When were your personal videos uploaded? If you upload a new one, I believe it should be available within a few hours. Old ones may take quite a while (i.e. backfilling).How Come When I Do A Search For My Personal Videos On Youtube Via Apple Tv, They Dont Show Up??? I Realize That They Have Not Yet Included The Entire Library Of Youtube But Ive Seen Some Videos That Have Been Just Added With As Little As 4 Views Coming Up In The Searches. What Gives????
THERE ARE SOME OLD VIDEOS THAT ARE LIKE....A YEAR OLD BUT IVE UPLOADED A HANDFUL OF RECENT ONES TOO. IT KIND OF PISSES ME OFF CUZ I WANT PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO VIEW MY STUFF VIA ATV.When were your personal videos uploaded? If you upload a new one, I believe it should be available within a few hours.

Right now, no one knows when Apple will be delivering movie rentals, let alone HD movies. Lots of rumors on Wall Street, though.Does anyone have an idea as to when Apple may make HD movies available on iTunes? I bought my Apple TV with the anticipation that they would be offer HD movies soon based on what I heard in the store. I hardly use my $400 toy because the picture quality of the movies I have on it playing on my 720 HD TV look like crap.... Any information would be greatly appreciated
