30 Days of Apple TV – Day 18

As we get closer to the end of this 30 day period, I’m having trouble waiting that extra 24 hours for new shows. I want to watch my Thursday night line up on Thursday night…not Friday…and I didn’t think that would be much of an issue for me…but I keep finding myself running over to […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 17

Yesterday I didn’t spend much time with my AppleTV. I had too many other things to do. It also doesn’t help that there really isn’t much that I watch on Monday or Tuesday nights. I have been encoding everything I can find with Visual Hub, however, to maximize the content on my AppleTV. I do […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 16

So…that Visual Hub thing everyone has been telling me to try… I tried it last night. Holy Crap. Two hours of video converted in 20:29. 21 hours of video converted in 149:32. Visual Hub is the big brother to iSquint, and WELL WORTH the $23.32. I am blown away at how blazingly fast this thing […]

Not too flashy, not too hip…it just tells you exactly what the AppleTV does…and it points out the primary reason for being interested in an […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 15

In yesterday’s “30 Days” post, Steve brought up an interesting idea, and reminded me that I have yet to talk about the AppleTV as a music player and photo viewer….which is kind of funny since I use it for those things more than watching television. I work from home, so I my “office” is my […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 14

9:05 pm Well, the AppleTV froze up on me for the first time today. As I type this I am re-booting the system by unplugging it from the wall. It seems to happen every time I try to play a file that I encoded with the AppleTV Video Encoder application that I wrote about in […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 13

Well, some new programming finally started coming on the networks after their spring break, so I was happy to have new 30 Rock, Scrubs and Office to watch last night. Since this is the first time during this testing process that I’ve gotten the chance to download new episodes (other than Lost) of the shows […]
