FLUBIT it

Funnily enough I found that earlier this afternoon as I fancy buying an Apple TV 3. One thing I need to do is research what the MD199HK/A refers to as many relate to the newest version being MD199LL/A.

I've now been told that:

MD199HK/A - Hong Kong model
MD199LL/A - US model
MD199B/A - UK model

I guess deep down they're all the same and just ship with a different power lead.

There's also two versions of ATV3

AppleTV 3,1 (A1427) introduced March 2012
AppleTV 3,2 (A1469) introduced March 2013

The main difference appears to be the graphics chip :
PowerVR SGX543MP2 (A1427) or PowerVR SGX543MP4 (A1469)

Considering to buy one of these but unsure whether to go for the Pi or an Apple TV? Mainly interested in streaming movies over network. And also a XBMC and Plex support too.

I got e-machine er1401 and mounted on back of TV, run xbmc and Plex as its a small form factor PC, loads on eBay.

This ^^^

I really would't bother with an AppleTV in the UK. And I say this as a heavy Apple user.

Unless you buy all your content on iTunes, it's fairly useless out of the box, so jailbreak it, and install Plex and XBMC to add additional functionality.

At that point you may as well get a RaspberryPi Model B and use OpenElec and a remote control.

I've got a Pi in one room, and a AppleTV in the main room - both do exactly the same thing really, the only perk I've had with the AppleTV is the better remote control, and a better plex interface.

Oh and you can airplay to anything with XBMC for what it's worth.

Yup. Jailbreak it, stick xbmc on it then add navi-x. Alternatively save about £20 and get a Raspberry Pi. You can usually find a bundle for about £45 that has the wifi dongle, power cable and a remote control. Then just stick openelec on it and you're golden.

you can't jailbreak ATV3 so do not buy this if you want xbmc.

Loads? I could only spy 1 with my little eye! How much are they supposed to cost?

Or a Now TV for £10 with Plex. I like the smoothness of the Apple TV tho.

I've had both Apple TV wins hands down

If u stream mainly YouTube from your iOS devices, get Chromecast. Works like a charm.

I suspect that they r clearing stock with the imminent release of a newer model. And most like stocks from overseas....

I too have both and while the Apple TV is better it also cost almost 3 times the price of the Pi. The Pi is slower but in terms of value it is one of my best purchases and until the the ATV3 is jailbroken you are tied to all that is Apple.

Don't forget there's huge speculation on the web the next version of Apple TV will be announced imminently, hence most likely this price drop.

This is, I assume, a Chinese model. Not sure what would then be the case with warranties, leads, compatibility etc.

RE this vs Pi vs others, discussion above

Android boxes with Amlogic M3/M6 chipsets (as were posted on here late last year around £60 e.g. Sumvision Nano) are looking real good now, or any supported by XBMC 13. i've been alpha testing Gotham for a while and it's looking really good, stable, fast, no need for special Pivos builds any more mainline plugin support, XBMC blows most things out the water.

beta1 came out yesterday! woot, as they say.

this is for people who aren't already tied in with the Apple ecosystem, if you are then Apple TV might be good.

Search for er1401 or er1402 , they do appear to be getting a good price lately , I got mine some time ago ..
Search hukd for er1401 for some idea of prices they went for.
Cracking bit of kit..
Even for a person with a little eye who can't use search engines.

Netflix, NOW TV, Red Bull TV, extend your desktop, mirror your desktop, airplay from iPhone and iPad, sync multiple computers iTunes and have slideshows of your photos while listening to your tunes. All done very easy with a 1080P output. I'd go for apple TV any day of the week.
However if you want to jailbreak Apple tv you'll have to buy the 2nd generation 720P version.

This is from just one seller (and it's a HK model).
All other legit outlets are still at or around the £99 RRP.

can you stream from macbook
do you need certain formats?
any apps to stream from android to apple?

also when its beeming across, can you continue to use the computer macbook / or phone for other tasks


You lot do realise there is no and will never be an Apple TV 3 jailbreak right?

Yes, not interested in a jailbroken ATV.
I was looking to buy one earlier today but will hold off for a few weeks and see if a new model is released.

I have just bought a ATV3 and I play Plex on it seamlessly with an iPad or my iPhone. You can AirPlay from the app to the ATV3 in full 1080p HD.

Also have it set up to think it is in the US so I can get the new WWE app and US Netflix. No need to Jailbreak anymore.

why is it never going to happen?

I have xbmc on my MacBook, I mirror my desktop to the ATV - no problem at all

My friend has the Cartoon HD app on his iPad, streams perfectly to ATV

ok but compare that to this
wiki.xbmc.org/ind…php?title=Category:All_add-ons
that's just first 200 out of 620 addons listed there and that doesn't include the vast number of "interesting alternative content" shall we say that they won't have there for legal/moral/whatever other reasons, but are easily found and installed with google.
or indeed, almost every app available on the play store for android. I'm not sure how AppleTV works with regards Apple iOS apps, can you install them too or are you stuck inside the AppleTV menus?

as i said, AppleTV is ok for specific uses with other Apple products but people need to know they're very limited outside of that and as you say this one can't do any of that. no jailbreak needed on Android boxes they come rooted. just make sure you buy one with hardware support. wiki.xbmc.org/?ti…are

i'll leave this now as i don't want a war but i don't think many people know just how cool these Android boxes are now, a year ago they were a pain in the **** they're just finally becoming solid and usable for everyday folk with XBMC 13 (beta1 out yesterday). they still require a bit more messing about to first setup though so if you only want the basic Apple stuff, go for this.
