    For appleTV to be perfect....

    -AirTunes - both ways (act as speakers and can connect to speakers)

    -iTunes Store - easily browse the iTunes store

    -Rental - Rent videos and just stream from the internet whenever you want to watch them

    -Internet Radio - Just would be nice

    -Different ways to browse - Coverflow for music and movies and i wouldn't mind having the 'front row' way of browsing movie trailers for movies etc.

    -Worldwide Movies & TV Shows - pretty simple really. apple is too focused on america

    -Browsing of photos - just to be able to see the photos as thumbnails and then can just click play and the slideshow would start from there

    -TV Shows properly organised - so they are ordered properly and can see the different seasons

    -More info when watching videos - when you're watching a video the 'up' and 'down' buttons are not being used, would be nice that when you click 'up' just the name pops up from above the screen and 'down' maybe the description pops up from below the screen

    -wikipedia partnership - be able to look up with the wikipedia pages of the actors, directors and movies...eg. your watching a movie and you like the actor who is in it, just exit and then click on the actors name and it takes you to the wikipedia page of them apple style

    -games - tetris would be perfect, pacman....etc....it would just be nice.

    -High Def - quality is really important to me

    -use of the USB - just be nice to be able to plug an iPod in and it would just pop up in the sources list or just add an external HD to add to the capacity.

    i had some more but i cant think of the at the moment...anyone else got any others....

    apple come on...dont forget about the appletv....

    I like all your suggestions, and really, most of those are the reason I am still waiting to buy one. Someday I will get one, once they get some HD stuff on the iTMS.

    Also, as the other poster said, most of those can be fixed through software so there is hope!
