Or maybe a point update bringing almost nothing new at all?Today at the iMac press conference, Steve Jobs said there would soon be news on Apple TV. Does this mean HD content to purchase? HD Content to Rent? A new model?
Apple does love to keep its fans in suspense!
I'd say YouTube, photo streaming and iPhoto slideshow syncing is bringing quite a bit. I hope the next update is as beneficial.Or maybe a point update bringing almost nothing new at all?
..that seems to be the latest trend...
Looks like something is indeed in the pipeline.Discussion also shifted to the Apple TV and its relation to the Mac platform. Jobs again took charge of answering concerns and said his company would "have some news" for the media hub soon but that a Mac-focused event was not the place for discussion.
AppleTV already does 5-channel support through DPLII, yes, but it's not discrete 5-channels. There will be a bit of bleeding between channels, and there is of course no sub-channel. So it's a bit lower fidelity than a DVD, but it works well enough.That's what I said, 5 channel (DPLII, not DPL, which is 4-channel).
Didn't someone mention more widget like things (that use RSS etc..)He literally meant that there would be News on Apple TV. As in 6 o'clock News.
Well - Then it's not surround. It's fake surround.AppleTV already does 5-channel support through DPLII, yes, but it's not discrete 5-channels. There will be a bit of bleeding between channels, and there is of course no sub-channel. So it's a bit lower fidelity than a DVD, but it works well enough.
All right I give up. How you think you can get away with a sentence like that without explaining how you do that is hard for me to fathom. Do you please have a link to instructions on how to do what you mean? You use Vista to record HDTV and serve it on an iMac? Please How? Cause if that's true I'm off to buy a HP 2.4GHz Kentsfield tomorrow.... There are probably still a lot of bugs in recording content. It needs to be seamless before Apple releases a recording device.
Until then, I am more than happy with Windows Media Center on my Vista box. I just have my shows shared and watch them on the old iMac.
In your dreams. Time to graduate to HDTV. They are now very inexpensive.What I'd like to see is support for my old-non HD TV.
