None of that's important, Kon....it's from Apple!

The missing tidbit being that all video/movie titles are delayed by 30

That and the fact that the AppleTV can do max 720p at no greater than
24fps with a bitrate not exceeding 5Mbit audio+video combined. Exceed
25fps and your max resolution is 960x540.

And then there is the quality of the video scaler...
But if you're ok with all of this... looks like a good deal. Well,
minus the cost and limitations on rentals. :)

When is someone going to figure out that users may want to be able to
PURCHASE the media, not just rent it.
