hello. when this first got announced, well.. even upta when it first shipped i though that the apple tv was useless, i posted lots of comments saying it played no role and that it wudnt sell blah blah blah. however, after going to the apple store on 5th avenue and having a little play...I LOVE IT!(its sooo cool) im saving up now so that when i get home (to the uk) i can pop into london and buy one. however, im looking for some advice 1. Should i buy now, with rumours saying new models and new software? 2. Should i mod it to give it a bigger harddrive? (i have 60gb of music + around 50 dvd's and 60 tv shows) 3. What is the best way to rip my dvd's on my mac so that i can play them on the apple tv (i got a 37" HDTV) 3 (part 2). How long does it take roughly per movie on my 1.83ghz CD mac mini? 4. My tv shows are all downloaded from torrents etc as im in uk so i cant get them of of itunes, i dont really want to do all the modding to get the divx and xvid codec on the appletv, so whats the best way to covert those shows into the correct format? program wise i have now dowloaded mediafork and have paid for quicktime pro sorry im asking for so much and i know that information is already out there, but i dont really understand it when they start talking about anamorphic video blah stereching pixels blah blah. please could some people be kind and jus help me in plain english. thankyou sooo much!
