30 Days of AppleTV – Day 10

I had a chance to spend some time with the full version of the AppleTV Video Converter that I mentioned a few days ago. The Interface is pretty straight forward, and within a click or two, whatever you’re trying to convert to AppleTV will up and encoding. The program has a few default settings to […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 9

We’re 9 days in now, and that joy over having a cool new product has defintely subsided. Even still, though, at this point, I don’t see any reason to go back to cable at the end of this 30 day trial. This week most of the shows that I watch will start running new episodes […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 8

So…what about stuff that isn’t in iTunes? That’s a question I faced this Sunday when it occurred to me that I wouldn’t be able to watch The Simpsons. Now, I could have watched it on the over the air channels that come into my home, but A) I don’t have an antenna, and B) I […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 7

One thing that I’ve seen some complaints about online, particularly in the G4 Interview, relate to the AppleTV’s video streaming. I’ve seen complaints that it really doesn’t do a very good job, but I have to say, mine is working perfectly. In fact, I don’t think it could work any better than it does. Now, […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 6

So I’ve been on an Office kick (especially after seeing Blades of Glory yesterday) so I decided to download the second season of The Office last night. I’ve been meaning to buy the DVDs forever, but decided to go the iTunes route instead since season one looked so good, and it saves the trouble of […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 5

Last night, I finally got caught up on Lost like I’ve been trying to do for a week now. Again, the quality is great…but I did notice one other little nitpick…I don’t like the way the remote fast forwards. It’s not precise enough for me. I’m sure this is something that can be fixed with […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 4

Last night, I decided to try and get caught up on Lost. I failed…but I tried. I downloaded the last two weeks worth of the show. Even though Lost is not in Widescreen on iTunes (which kinda drives me nuts) the video quality is exceptional. I’m very pleased with the overall picture clarity. I didn’t […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 3

Last night I didn’t get home until very late, so I didn’t spend a lot of time watching Television, but I was very pleased when I got home to find that my large format version of the new DL.TV, Diggnation, and the new Revision 3 show “The Totally Rad Show” were all waiting for me. […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Part 2

First off…do you guys prefer AppleTV or TV? I kind of like TV…I mean, we’re all Mac Users here aren’t we? Just let me know…whatever the popular choice is, is what I’ll be using from now on…today though, it’s TV. So, last night I’m looking at the sparse amount of content we have in the […]
