    I have been reading the boards for a while and never posted being a PC user with a ipod touch. After reading so many things for the last few months about how great macs were I decided to buy a 15" MBP 2.8g, and Apple TV because I have a big Itunes Library. I hooked up the Mbp to my 50" Panasonic Kuro with a HDMI switcher and bought the wireless keyboard and Magic Mouse and hooked up the apple tv to my tv with component cables and optical audio. I Then hooked up the MBP to a Bose Companion 5 for computer sound. I am loving this setup and I want to thank everyone with helping me figure out what to purchase and how to hook it up you are a good bunch of guys. I cannot wait for the Ipad:) I do have one question though I cannot see the task bar on the top of the TV I can press the hidden buttons but they are off screen I tried a few things any ideas? Thank you again.

    Congrats also!

    Not sure what you mean by a task bar on top of your TV.... You only get the main menu window when you press the Menu button, so I'm not sure what you're referring to. You may want to check the Apple TV forum.

    The reason you can't see the menu bar is because your TV is using overscan. Either turn it off, and I don't know how with your tv, or try changing the resolution setting on the computer. Typically, its recommended that you set your tv to 1:1 mapping, which turns off overscanning. On my tv I can't do that so I adjusted the resolution on my connected mini. Look at your tv manual.
