Apple TV
« on: December 30, 2009, 03:55:11 PM »
Has anyone here tried apple tv?  We just got one and are really enjoying it.  It's very impressive and fun, but one cool thing I noticed was the internet radio section.  I noticed that as soon as you pop into the radio section, the ambient radio section is right there on the first page.  I think a lot of non-ambient people are going to discover ambient music through this.

I was smiling as I dialled through all of the ambient stations, such as stillstream, dronezone etc.  I'd seen them all before, but the context of seeing them on apple tv was kind of cool.  A bit like seeing your friend on tv.  :)

Apple TV was one of several options discussed recently in this topic:

I considered buying an Apple TV but didn't like that it didn't support many popular video formats.  It's a neat little box, though, despite its restrictions.  I bought a Mac Mini instead.

I remember looking at a friend's setup, which was mac mini, and apple tv.  The mac mini does look great.
I thought the same about the apple tv at first- it seemed to have a quite restricted range of formats.  And itunes seemed to have
a quite  limited range of movies and tv shows, all mainly hollywood.  Recently that seems to have changed, and now there
is quite a big range of movies and tv shows

Right now we're in the honeymoon phase. :)  We're sitting around, looking at this big new tv, watching lots of itunes trailers and looking at photos
of our holiday.
