Even most Tv's can't display 640 x 480 because the quality of the set isn't high enough. If you are connected through your tuner, the best you can hope for, with a perfect tuner, is 332x480.
Yes I forgot to mention the tuner. The better televisions (Sony Trinitron) are good, but yes those ultra-cheap Walmart televisions cannot tune the full quality of the signal.
If anything Apple offering this product will bring more focus on Elgato and drive sales to them as well, depending on how Elgato markets their competing products.
I agree so far Apple has not competed directly with Elgato and Elgato has been really good at tailoring its products around whatever Apple offers.
Because Elgato knows about the iTV device months before its launch. Its very likely they will be prepared to offer DVR technology to complement it.
Nice new interface??????????????? Are you kidding? Why are the interface elements not aqua? What are these hideous new scroll bars? Why do they not respect my preferences to have double scroll arrows at both ends? What happened to the visualiser? What's happened to the search bar?
Its more polished and doesn't feel as much like a toy. Apple is probably moving away from so much of the shiny candy buttons as MS begins to adopt them.
I like the album scroll, I'm sure I'll use that far more than the standard list. The visualizer is under view drop down menu with the graphic equalizer controls. The search bar is in the same place.
