I have a friend who got 'triple-play'. Yep, Landline phone, Internet and TV, all from one company, all from his 19th century copper line, 21st century-alized with DSL. Well, every time he answers the phone the TV goes jerky, likely due to QoS.

There's no way he's getting TV over a copper line unless it's coax. DSL is strictly a telephony term.

Urhm, no. DSL with triple play is being done by all major ISP / telco's over here. We got Internet over our copper phone line back in 1995 I believe and TV was added a few years back. 8Mbps downlink required for it to work. DSL goes upto a theoretical 40Mbps over here (in The Netherlands)

Is it a fiber backbone to a certain nearby point?

I don't know when it happened but now when you play a serialized YouTube video on AppleTV (e.g. Show A Part 1, Show A Part 2), the parts are played in sequence. On my old Apple TV 2 (which is stuck at the last 'jail breakable' version), you had to manually select the next episode. Thanks Apple! 

 

I'll be the first to admit Apple isn't first with this feature. My Panasonic TV also does it.

 

Edit: Never mind. I accessed the video set using the 'Playlists' option on my ATV3 and that is where the videos played in sequence. I then tried on my ATV2 and found out that the feature was always there.

I wish they fixed the HDCP nonsense.

They are rolling that out. It's a very small country, they need 28,000 fiber optic switches and no telco wants to invest. So they are doing it slowly, starting with 'rich neighbourhoods'. So the last miles, FTTH, are rolled out by demand.

Ever since the AppleTV 6.1 update I've been having an annoying problem.

I use my old iPhone 3GS as my AppleTV remote. But ever since the update, the remote app quits randomly, for no apparent reason. I have to reopen the app every time.

This never happened before the AppleTV update and nothing has changed on my 3GS.
