    Who in the world wants analog audio? You couldn't use it if you were using HDMI anyway.

    I agree. A real irritation, since I had to get an analog-to-digital converter for use with my B&O system (which I am not giving up any time soon). It seems to add a certain sharpness and edginess to the sound that I don't care much for....



    Mine arrived today too, and as with the previous ones, this one also has the USB port. Has anyone ever figured out -- since it's been around since V1 -- what the heck that's for?!

    It's quite demure, actually.

    It doesn't have to be. It gets hits, so it gets written up.

    Hmmm... And you don't need better resolution while browsing the web?



    Once you'll open magazines in AppStore for yourself - a big surprise is waiting for you! They look so great, and the only drawback is the lack of resolution.







    I have a condo with my desktop in my living room. The ipad is used for quick browsing . Plus I am not picky and not made of money . lol



    I can wait till next year for the next model that has the same screen but much better internal specs.

    Slightly off topic but I found this news article which looks like Cisco and Apple are headed to the same place where the puck will be regarding TV.

    Originally it was supposed to be able to play media from attached storage but was only available by jail breaking it.

    My Denon will only play analog audio to 2nd zone, not digital. If you need audio in sync with digital video, you need analog audio out from same unit supplying the video, or a D-A converter with some way to sync.

    My iPad left Louisville, KY this afternoon after sitting in Anchorage for 5 days. Is it really going to make it to my home in San Francisco by tomorrow afternoon? It says it is on time, according to UPS.

    <troll-mode>it's the same case design and they didnt change the name? No quad core processor? No retina display? No Siri? No notifications? I can't use it to download pirated porn from the torrents, just more walled garden movies from Disnee? Wtf? Its the iPhone 4S all over again. Apple is fail</troll-mode>

    Apple originally referred to it as a service port.

    I do. \



    In fact my current ATV is hooked up with HDMI for display/audio to my TV while the Analog audio hooks to my receiver for multi zone music. (and some DBX processors)

    My TV won't do 720p. That's my problem. The old AppleTV would go down to 480p, which works but really sucks to watch.
