    Well, got ATV under the wrong impression that it would possibly be a replacement for watching old shows, etc... with streaming video. No way Jose!

    I am sending it back (I am within the return period with Apple) and will keep the cable.

    At least I tried it. Oh, I am getting a refund for my ATV Flash as well.

    Have you considered a MacMini with EyeTV and Plex? EyeTV to watch regular TV and record at will, and Plex for most everything else.

    The OP paid for ATV flash?

    Ouch.

    And thats not a statement advocating 'unethical' downloads & other nefarious activities - its a statement advocating Teh Google.

    But I digress....

    It will stream old films. You just have to get them first. What on earth did you think it was. A silver box with an unlimited supply of movies. ??

    Judging by the OP’s post history, it appears he thought it would be a full-blown cable TV replacement (streaming video from Comcast, Hulu, etc) using ATVFlash, and should have purchased a Mac mini instead.
