    I'm think of getting an Apple TV. I want to access my iTunes library including podcast from my home theater without all the trouble I have to goto currently.

    So does Apple TV have to sync with my iTunes or does it simply stream like my HDTV, Xbox 360 and PS3 do? And will I have the same nice interface I have in iTunes or on my iPhone or is it just another crappy media extender interface like my Samsung HDTV, Xbox 360 and PS3?

    I especially hate accessing my podcast on my current 3 media extenders (they are all crap for podcast) so if I can have iTunes download my podcast in the morning and then easily access them from my home theater I'll be happy.

    You can choose to synch your Apple TV without any content on it, which is what I do, and let all the media stream to it from your iTunes library, or you can synch items to the internal hard drive.

    All the play lists, tv shows, movies and Podcasts will show up on the Apple TV whether synched onto the Apple TV or streamed
