I have both, jail broken 2 and this 3. Bargain!

Utter nonsense. I'm not rich. I have 3 ATV's for different rooms. I have never paid Apple anything for watching TV/Movies using mine. I use it for streaming my stored Movies/TV Series around the house. (from NAS drives) *Main use for me I can also watch streaming movies/Sky channels/Streaming TV/Football/Photos/Music etc if I choose to, though quality of these vary a great deal. There's lots you can do with them. I would obviously recommend the 2nd Gen though, until a Jailbreak is released for this model (which I'm pretty sure will happen at some point, but could still be a fair way off).

No doubt good with jail break just very very limited without. It is a lovely bit of kit and takes very little power, for me it was not about the 60 quid it is about the fact that something else I own that serves no purpose. Mirroring would have been good but the image was only on the middle of my T.V. If I thought Jailbreak was coming anytime soon I would have hung n to it.

comput1

Was going to buy one and hold out on the jailbreak. I have an atv2.... Once jail broken, FANTASTIC!

steviecross

Just noticed your comment, dont waste your money on one of these. Mirroring works but you do not get full screen only the centre of tv is filled, Tried it for streaming itv player and takes ages to appear then keeps buffering. Took it back on sunday. Spend your money on a western digital live tv, miles better

comput1

Thanks Steviecross. Too far away from me though. Have you had a play with it yet? If its no good to you I could buy it off you ;)

steviecross

It is in Walsall in the west mids, they sell argos items that are discontinued etc. You have to ask for an unopened box otherwise you could get a return or display model. It is a nice bit of kit, shame no jailbreak though

now a further £5 cheaper, check out the deal post at https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/apple-tv-very-69-for-new-customers-only-with-voucher-code-63-06-after-cashback-1076756

bigbadbren

To be honest, for the best part of £85 its quite a nifty device if you own one or more iphones and decent surround sound system. It allows you to play your playlists stored on a PC/Mac and content from your iphones. Its certainly not perfect by a long way, but useful and relatively cheap if you have all your music stored within iTunes.

davidmaiden18183

Back to a discussion on the deal. This is available cheaper from very.co.uk for £68.06 if you are a new customer to them and set up a credit account (if you like once you have made the order just pay the outstanding balance with your card straight away) At very it is £99, use code 23NKF for £25 off making it £74. Then Quidco/Topcashback offer 6% cashback for new customers and they pay this on the value of the goods before discount thus £5.94 cashback. So in total effective price £68.06. If you can’t click and collect at store it is £72.01 delivered. Hope this helps some people as it is what I did when I ordered last night-bargain at that price when jailbroken. For me the difference between 720p and 1080p is negligible, as it should be for anyone with a TV 32" or less

petepda

This is what I do with mine - got it set up in the bedroom on a small 22" set - no need for 1080p - I just use my iPhone to watch TVCatchup then flick it over to the TV using Airplay - works brilliantly.

The Apple TV is back down to £85 at amazon.. A great companion to the iPad/iPhone with Airplay, etc.. Jailbreak it and add XBMC and you've got a great entertainment machine. :)
darrenrapley

Ordered - thanks OP

scoobies

Guys seriously considering this as an additional player.... I had used xbmc on an original xbox and wa great... But essentially had to move on as no proper hd mkv playback. (720p is fine) Anyway from reading some reviews there a few issues that could be a showstopper... - is the GUI on the atv2/xbmc still sluggish - will it store the passwords for my Nas - where is media art stored (must use library)

knack

I'm sure I read elsewhere that iplayer can be used but this is only available after you have jailbreaked the device. That's why you won't see it mentioned in any reviews!

scope

hmm, I was just assuming it works the same way as on the Revo.. I've got XBMC running on a Revo 3610, as well as an on old Xbox, both running iPlayer and TvCatchup just fine.. Its just a python script at the end of the day, so I thought it would work on all devices running XBMC.. Somebody might confirm this..

n00b

Any link to confirm this? Every review I've read says iplayer is not available.

browsing the movies database of Icefilms in the library with xbmc is very laggy anyway I could speed it up?

The latest firmware is 4.4.1 for apple tv. I just googled if it's jailbreakable and found this http://www.zatznotfunny.com/2011-10/apple-tv-4-4-jailbreak-now-available/#comment-114969 So it seems that it is, thethered and plex and xbmc don't work on it yet. So not very useful. Another interesting thing if I understood correctly is that apple can force an upgrade. Hopefully ive misunderstood this point because I don't like that idea. I will have to upgrade to 4.4.1 eventually becuase I want to use the wireless mirroring, but won't bother with it until iPad 2 is jailbreakable on ios5.

c00li0

Any jailbreak out yet for he latest IOS?

alexsim2007

Try Seas0npass - It worked for me - I then installed aTV Flash Black (available from torrents) and then XBMC, which is working great at the moment - and unlike Plex it doesnt need to transcode files, and can play from just a shared network drive, a big plus in my opinion.

indeed i have both although i only use my ps3, but i can stream anything i like using tversity and it plays fine. i thought these boxes had hdd so you could put all your dvd movies on them so you dont need the discs. does anyone know if such a device exists?

Emeye

I bought one of these for the bedroom when it first came out, then took it back - for me the limitation of not being able to use the remote to change the volume was frustrating - also it did not integrate with my IPhone 3G as promised by the dude at the Apple shop - you have to have a 3GS or 4G to allow the media sharing. I found it quite limited in what it could do. I love using Remote with my Airport Express to stream music around the house, but this felt too limited - maybe in an update or 2 it will be better. In the end I got the £299 Sony 32" Full HD TV I found on HUKD and with DNLA and integrated freeview HD I found it a much neater solution. Never used XBMC, but these days I can't be arsed messing around jailbreaking stuff! :D

baseley09

I can agree its a matter of the item being fit for personal purpose. I havn't had those issues with PS3 though typically I play all files locally from an external drive, unless its unsupported (in which case I use a PC), I certainly cant hear the fans, however it is placed near a floor standing speaker. I'm om 10mb Virgin, the 3 movies I have rented have taken 2-3 hours to download ready for use (on an iPad), it's good to hear this may be a network speed issue instead of hardware failings to be sure.

deadphill

PS3 is fine if you a) like the sound of fans b) dont mind having to screw around all the time to get things going. I was using a ps3 and tversity/ ps3 media server both of which I found to be awful. Rewind and fast forward being particuarly crap if I recall correctly. I mean it did work but was so limited. it could play pause and stop and that was about it. Plus it would have the occasional freeze and de-sync. And the server was an 2gb core duo, so should have had plenty to help it along. I cant comment for the device about streaming from itunes, but if I were to get this and use it to put xbmc on, I would have a lovely tiny media centre for my living room/bedroom. While this is far from an all in one solution, your suggestion to build your own pc and configure it, hope it wont make much noise, put an os on it etc etc, may work for you but for others, myself included, I just want something nice, neat, that will do the job as intended. To say it is useleess is really not the case. I have an iphone and ipad and they (constuting all apple products, as you have suggested) do not take the "hours" as you have quoted, to stream from the apple store. Maybe this is a problem you face, or a limited number of others. I note no-one has given their actual bb speeds to perhaps give a reason as to why they themselves are experiencing difficulties. Mine is 20mb (real world speed on virgin). I have only just upgraded from 10mb. This may or may not be the case as to why I do not experience difficulty. I dont mind if people comment on here about their experiences, but some comments are just so throwaway its unreal. Rant over! Cheers Phill

baseley09

PS3 runs MKv and any other format fine if you use TVversity or PS3 media streamer. Yes you need to have a PC/NAS on to stream, but you do for Apple TV, which cant play local files. All Apple devices take hours to stream a rented/bought movie from the store. You are better off grabbing someone's old small form factor P4 or Athlon X2 for free or £50 tops, add a £40 low profile HDMI card and you have access to everything. IMO useless piece of kit.

Big.Bas

I already have an Acer Revo running XBMC, now this Apple Unit has been opened to run it, it's a no brainer... Home theatre for the bedroom, It's going HOT.

loopie

I'd image the states price would be plus local taxes and maybe uk import charges, plus maybe the cost of a new power supply to cope with our 240 volt system, think best to use the UK price rather than price in other countries. I'm sure the box has loads of different bits and bobs that might be of interest to some but most people's BASIC need is 1080p output and maybe DTS/AC3 passthrough and it's not able to do that. Good upgrade if you own one already, but this does not make me want to rush out an buy one. Maybe Apple TV3 with an A5 CPU will be worth it.

RXP91

It also doesn't do DTS/AC3 pass through. I think ones the XBMC devs have matured the code on the device it'll be worth a purchase but right now by Popcorn Hour A100 blows it away as all I really care about is quality. The interface is always secondary for me.

Xeijin

Extensive Subtitle support (including on-the-fly subtitle downloading), options for tweaking DTS-HD & Dolby sound settings, numerous add-ons, support for new video formats when they are added to mplayer, various skins, UPnP media (server and client), support for various file sharing protocols (Samba, AFP, NFS), Media Scraping, various audio & video tweaks on-the-fly and more are just some of the features you've missed, most of which the WD HD and Hisense cannot do. I think XBMC is much more than a nice interface these days. It's a £91 box (£62 if you're coming from or know someone in the states!) that does alot more than these £60 players, while the lack of 1080p output is less than ideal (the 1080p decoding problems are almost certainly teething problems, ION was the same when it started off) to say that this box (with XBMC mind) is overpriced at £91 is unjustified imho.

wozwebs

Mine came today - fantastic bit of kit. Using my iPad to control what albums I want on and the whole Airplay thing is tremendous. Can start a track on my Mac in the office and hear it out the speakers, click on 'Speakers' and select Apple TV to either send the audio direct to it or have the audio coming out of both speakers. When a lot of new stereos have Airplay built in you can imagine having the same tracks playing around the whole house like Sonos. Very pleased with it, especially for ease of use on looking at photos etc. too.

I'm shocked at all of the posts suggesting you need to buy media from iTunes.... I simply buy from other sources and import it into iTunes. Using iTunes to manage and play my media. I'm buying an apple iTV in Vegas today for $99 and will report further on its suitability with my home TV.

Xeijin, see xbmc4xbox.org you'll get much better support on the Xbox1 than a hacked ATV1. The xbox, btw, has 64MB RAM. there's much discussion about this, but basically if you stick to an efficient skin like PM3 or xTV, run at 720p or lower, and use plugins rather than scripts, you'll be fine and there's so many Xbox users out there you should be fine for a while yet. I don't know how well XBMC runs on the ATV1 and i don't really care to try because for this much money, as said, you can get a real HTPC and install what you like without any hacking.

well no I don't work for sky nor blockbuster, but it's simply a sensible answer. why would you buy a product which is more expensive than the existing alternatives which I have discussed?! If anyone is stupid then it's folk like yourself who would more then likely buy this product thinking it's a best thing since sliced bread. I'll stick to my opinion, but if you think that it's stupid then clearly you are an uneducated moron and you deserve to be ripped off!

As I understand it, currently the cheapest "True HD" (as you call it) alternative (that is it can run XBMC) is the Acer Revo, it hasn't been seen under ~ £180 for some time now IIRC,. Others seem to be comparing it to the WD Live, fine if you just want to play downloaded videos straight off the drive but really laughable if you try and compare it to XBMC, the two devices are not in the same league. Finally XBMC have officially dropped support for the original xbox, on top of that the original xbox and sometimes chokes on even the most basic of skins thanks to its 128MB RAM. It just about gets by with SD content (imho) and apart from playing xbox games (hardly a fair comparison) I fail to see what "more" the xbox can do than an ATV. Not to mention that an xbox is about 3x as noisy and about 10x as large as the ATV not to mention an eyesore for the living room (again, imho).

I thought it was quite a sensible and true post, imo.
