    What about sound?

    sounds good, but I won't judge becasue I'm using a Dell HDTV. I think I might want to recode the movies for higher sound quality.


    pics coming right now

    So no surround sound? I mean, I know it has an optical digital out, but if you have an encoded file with surround sound...

    I want people to figure out how to replace the 40 with a bigger drive.

    40 will not cut it for me with all the movies I plan to rip

    Look at the Ars Technica breakdown. I'm sure they'll have a bigger hard drive in there tomorrow: Link (it was posted in the OP's other thread).

    have you tried the streaming yet? i wonder what the biggest encoding over a 54g connection would be...or maybe it gets downgraded before being sent, who knows

    Yeah, I'm surprised they only offer 40gigs :wtf: It's their way of fucking the early adopters. The next release will have 120gig, and other fancy shit.

    It fucking streams guys. You aren't limited by the hard drive. It's only for buffer/offline playing.

    AND it limits you to a certain number of movies that can be synced up = you will never fill the hdd.

    so I had to buy another year sob to continue to post. oh well

    well, I've been using it now for a day and it runs well. I unplug it at nite cause it gets really HOT. the older videos (320x280) look like regular TV 640x480 looks like cable TV to me. as for the movies I encoded 720x408, the sound I think needs work. (sounded low to me) but the video quality was pretty better then I expected.

    here's photo of of phantom menace I encoded at over 1800kbps

    initSlideshow();[​IMG][​IMG]

    and its streaming from the blue external drive to the apple TV
    all my music & Pics are on the local Apple TV I decided to stream movies over instead to keeping. undestand that as soon as you stop using the wireless connection to strean, iTunes will start to transfer over the the movies. usually, I'lll keep all the videos off untill I want to stram stuff over till I get a larger drive.
