Will not stream .avi

By Michael

I bought the Apple TV to stream video files from my mac to my HDTV. Some of the other reviews were misleading saying the device would stream any type of file. The device is designed to work with ITunes so will only stream file types associated with ITunes. I did not want to use ITunes so found a free app called "AirFlick' that will send the files to Apple TV without ITunes. The files still have to be in an ITunes format however. Most of my files were in .avi format so I had to convert them to mpeg4, but once that was done I had no trouble watching them on my HDTV. The Apple TV works great, was easy to set up and offers lots of other options like YouTube and some other free sources of programing.

Fun product with a lot of potential

By George Thompson

My Apple tv works fairly well with my ATT basic dsl connection. I watch a lot of Netflix and have purchased a couple of movies from iTunes. I was a little surprised at the 12 hour download time for a movie. I also wish I had more choices. Some suggestions for Apple would be to include a weather site, NFL rewind, CBS online, hulu, and a simple web browser. Also my family really enjoys AirPlay. With its small size and low price I can recommend buying it to family and friends but I can't help but feel the product could do so much more!

Not so pleased

By James Davis

1 - The AppleTV was very easy to setup. Everything works as designed.

1 - The AppleTV remote activates any MAC computer in the room. The MAC has to be turned off when watching AppleTV.

Would like to see:
1 – Internet access to other video sites such as HULU

Apple TV

By David Harrison

Apple TV works very well with Netflix if you have a fast internet connection (3 Mbps download speed or faster). If you have a 1.5 Mbps or slower, some shows from Netflix will play, but they might have a lot of pauses. HD movies and shows are too much memory for such a slow connection. I started out with a 1.3 Mbps connection, and I had to switch to another IP which ranges from 6 to 10 Mbps and it is now acceptable.

If you use iTunes on your computer, Apple TV handles movies and TV shows downloaded to iTunes much better. It worked fine with my slower IP.

Pretty Good but not with outdated TV

By Danny

I have a Panasonic TV from 2005. So I could not stream Netflix. This was the only downfall. Everything else was awesome. I tried everything I could, and even the apple store told me my tv was outdated. So I sent it as a gift to my brother who has a new tv than me.
