How many people are saving up to buy the iTV, I have a question though how is it going to connect to your computer... Bluetooth?
Bluetooth doens't have the range... it is speculated that it will connect through the new (not yet approved) draft-N wireless standard.macluver101 said:I have a question though how is it going to connect to your computer... Bluetooth?
If 802.11n support is there, I'm pretty sure 802.11b will also... I could be wrong, though. There will most definitely be support for ethernet.macluver101 said:So if you dont have the right wireless connection it won't work?

Is one good reason, so even if it does get video support, it won't support any TV Shows or video bought from iTMS....nullriver said:iTunes Music Store purchased content is DRM-protected and is not supported.
would it really not work? i am able to play my itunes music store songs on it. I was under the impression the mac played the video and then streamed it which would i thought get rid of the drmbalamw said:Is one good reason, so even if it does get video support, it won't support any TV Shows or video bought from iTMS....
(i.e. it doesn't do the same thing as an iTV)
That said, if it works for you, great. I'm really not anti-MS...
I just find that there seems to be a lot of astroturfing going on these days which seems to be aimed at hyping up the Zune and spreading FUD, kind of like the buzz around Origami (a.k.a. UPMC) was before its release and I couldn't resist the play on words.
WE JUST DON'T KNOW HOW ITV WILL ULTIMATELY WORK.dukebound85 said:i may be wrong though
hmm maybe they dont ill have to retry it, but i thought i was able too. if so that will kinda suck. But then again i rip my own movies so i will never buy them from itms and be subject to the drmbalamw said:WE JUST DON'T KNOW HOW ITV WILL ULTIMATELY WORK.
Sorry I usually don't yell, but it seems highly unlikely that iTV will work anything like the Airport Express due to the bandwidth requirements even for the current 480p videos from iTMS... As it is the move from 320x240 to 640x480 is pushing it for 802.11b with compressed videos shared over iTunes...
Nullriver claims on the Connect 360 page that iTunes tracks are not supported so I wonder how you got it to work.
