After a lot of debate and research I made the plunge this past weekend and bought a new Apple TV 3. As a long time Apple user installation in my home theater setup was relatively uneventful. I already have an Ethernet switch connected to my satellite DVR and BluRay player so I connected the ATV directly to my network. About the first thing I did was run a software update on the ATV. I had an unused Blue Tooth keyboard that came with my latest iMac that I never used so I paired it up and use it as the remote. It took me a bit of poking at settings but I got home sharing running and my ATV and iMac team up nicely to serve as an A/V jukebox. My big complaint however is with online performance. I'm paying for 15 Mbps DSL internet service and it typically measures 10 to 11.5 Mbps, though it occasionally falls to some ridiculous low value - below 1 to 3 then comes back up. I'm trying to see if there is a pattern to that. It seems to be related to time of day with better performance in the morning and drops in the evening, but I can't be sure of that. So far I've yet to be able to successfully view anything more than short video clips. Sometimes a clip will begin to play quickly, other times the spinner will grind away for several minutes before the video finally starts to play. Other times I'll just give up trying. The few times I've tried playing anything longer, like a 1 hour or a 30 minute video, I'll get about half way through (at which point I'm really interested in the subject) and the video will just stop, the spinner will start and it appears there is no recovery. A speed test after I give up shows no problems. The ATV's built in network test seems pretty useless. It goes through it's thing, then just tells me it's done. No performance specs even a pass/fail message is given. What good is that? I'm wondering if these problems are likely to be something to do with the service, my ISP or something in my setup? I keep seeing how people are getting rid of cable or satellite service and moving to a Roku or ATV type device, but so far I'm not buying it. It seems as if this technology isn't quite ready yet.
