Apple TV and Netflix – No Audio

Not exactly sure what happened, but the Netflix app on the 4th generation Apple TV (non 4K) stopped playing audio. I have a feeling there was an update to the Netflix app and the update is implementing digital copy protection. Maybe this could be related to the future inclusion of Dolby Atmos in the 4K […]

Stream Bigwest.tv to AppleTV?

Gotta do some research on the best way to stream on-the-road UH basketball games to my television set. Since there’s no national television broadcast, the only option is the live stream available on bigwest.tv. But I don’t want to watch the game on a computer screen. Can the AppleTV stream this content natively? Seems like […]

Steve Job Defines the Challenges for the AppleTV

At the D8 conference, Steve Jobs talked many things including the challenges for the AppleTV (and any other set top box). Sounds so straightforward, and I’m hoping Apple has a solution. And add to your vocabulary the word “Balkanize:” to break up (as a region or group) into smaller and often hostile units

iTunes Movie Rentals to AppleTV

iTunes Movie Rentals to AppleTV

For all the things Apple has done right regarding ease of use, this one ain’t one of them. I rented a movie from iTunes and the huge HD file eventually downloaded. That part was easy. Now, how do I view this movie on my synchronized AppleTV? I checked the movie section on the AppleTV, but […]

The Apple Family Is Complete

The Apple Family Is Complete

With this, I think the Apple family is now complete. The AppleTV joined the other Apple goodies like the Mac, MacBook, iPod, and iPhone. Hmmm, does the Mini count as an unique Apple device? So far, I’m liking the AppleTV to access my music, movies, and pictures stored on my Mac. So much more convenient […]

Is the AppleTV the Tommy Herr of Apple's Lineup?

Is the AppleTV the Tommy Herr of Apple’s Lineup?

…Or how Apple’s product line reminds me of the 1985 St. Louis Cardinals batting lineup. Tommy Herr was the switching hitting second baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals back in the mid-80s. For whatever reason, when I saw the AppleTV in action, I thought of Tommy Herr. Let’s discuss… The Cardinals of ’85 featured a […]

Bad Review of the AppleTV

The Associated Press has a lukewarm-bordering-on-bad review of the AppleTV. The article claims the main detraction of the AppleTV is the poor display of non-HD content. I would agree after seeing an AppleTV in action. Apple got to get their HD game going to make the AppleTV a true game changer. Technorati Tags: Apple, AppleTV

Saw the AppleTV in Action

Unlike Ryan who pre-ordered an AppleTV and is already enjoying it, I had to go to the Apple Store to see an AppleTV in action. My first impression is ah, so-so. First off, I love the integration and just being able to access my iTunes content on a TV. The Front Row interface is beautiful, […]

AppleTV at Apple Ala Moana

The new AppleTV is in stock at the Ala Moana Apple Store. They had a few boxes behind the counter but didn’t have a live demo going. I talked to one of the Apple employees who said they were working on the AppleTV display tonight to have it ready by Sunday or at least for […]

Could the AppleTV Be Peer-to-Peer?

A very interesting article about the possibility of Apple’s upcoming AppleTV being a peer-to-peer device. Makes a lot of sense and the timing of Steve Jobs’ fight against DRM in his Thoughts on Music is uncanny. Also consider the fact the Apple now understands how the game is played and how you win at these […]
