Disclaimer: I'm not an expert on the topic so some of my terminology might be a bit off …Is that "real-time" hardware H.264 encoding, which I've read still can't touch the quality of multi-pass software encoders? How might GPU H.264 encoding benefit Apple TV? Could that essentially obsolete software currently being used to convert others formats to H.264 by doing the encoding it directly on Apple TV after its received? What's a good example of when it make sense for a...
Maybe sucralose already knew that and was simply stating s/he didn't want to take part in that form of surgery.
And experience barriers.

That makes their "eyetv & Apple TV, A Perfect Match" advertising a bit silly. I've read at least one person confirm that 480i SDTV is supported so maybe there are other surprises still to discover (for better or worse) that Apple isn't...
