30 Days of AppleTV – Day 12

So, I decided that it might be a good idea to upgrade to 802.11n. I mean, why not, right? I’m constantly transferring files either to my external storage, or to the AppleTV…so I decided I would go and drop some cash on an N router. I also made the stupid choice of trying to save […]

30 Days of AppleTV – Day 11

As I continue to watch through Season 2 of the The Office (new episodes of Lost, 30 Rock, Earl, Scrubs and more are coming in next few days, so I’ll soon have something else to talk about for those of you sick of hearing about The Office) I have noticed an inconsistency with the video […]

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 […]
