  1. Let’s hope this fixes the infamous “skipped/dropped audio” problem and the “audio out-of-sync with video” problem that has been all over the boards for quite a while now.

    Fingers and toes crossed…

  2. Can I play the content from my Apple TV on my computer? If so, can I play the HD movies on my computer in another room of the house?

    I am contemplating an Apple TV, but the no HD content on the computer might be a deal-breaker for me.

  3. @Logan…

    It seems to me that if you can get the content into iTunes, you can stream it to your AppleTV. That’s not the same as buying content with your AppleTV and then moving it to your computer. The studios don’t want you to do that. But there are plenty of tools that will allow you to back up your existing HD content onto your computer. (Pay attention to how this is stated…) Once it’s on your computer you can then stream it through iTunes.
