I have two ATV1s and and finding they are increasingly having trouble with HD media from the iTunes store so I want to upgrade in the not too distant future. What I am wondering is how much evidence there has been that a new ATV is in the pipeline and not too far away from release. I know there have been some tags referring to it in recent Apple software, but is there reasonable reason to expect it by the spring? It seems logical that it would pack at least the chip that the iPhone or iPad are currently offering and I would think that would make for a huge performance increase that might even handle any future 1080 content effortlessly. So what has been the concensus around here lately?
