iTunes also installs a QT update, but I agree that QT popping up is quite annoying.

Somebody wake me when you can access album covers for Cover Flow through the iTunes Store without giving Apple a credit card number, or when the Apple TV gets some decent hardware/software specs.

Yeah, I know, I should just get off my lazy butt and manually do the covers myself, but I mean come on ... you can browse the covers in the iTunes Store, but it won't put them into iTunes for you without giving them a credit card number???

Hurray for the DVD Studio Pro update!

I never gave iTunes a Credit Card number. I just used a Gift Card to sign up
But if you have an Apple ID that might work as well.

As I understand it, iTunes now has the ability to (if you wish) sort John Lennon among the "L"s while still have him listed in the Artist column as "John Lennon". At the same time, bands like Motley Crue would of course still be both sorted among the "M"s and listed as "Motley Crue". The rule you choose will only apply to the artists specified by you, not the entire library.

Or so we can see whether it'll be worth it to run Vista under boot camp without having to spend $150 on Leopard? Oh, forget that last one, Apple doesn't want you to not buy it.

Don't forget that bootcamp will be available, separately, for $30

Where did you get that? I was under the impression it will be included with Leopard.

Great, so instead of going through one's library to manually change the names of artists and the like, one has to go through one's library to say "Hey, sort by this name instead".

Which will be great, except (a) it probably won't hold on the ipod like that, and (b) then you've got the confusion of seeing artists listed first, last, but sorted differently, which makes it that much harder to find a specific artist.

I think I'll stick to my renaming 'last, first' manually. Then everything makes sense.

huh, I know it is included with leopard but I thought it was also going to be available separately. But maybe I'm starting to have trouble separating fact from rumor.

Apprently, with iTunes 7.1 TV shows are now sorted by the Episode ID. This is why my episodes got all mixed up in a season. Kinda weird to all of a sudden change that, but oh well. I also have a problem where in the movies tab iTunes will cut off the the information for the last movie in each row if I choose to view all of my titles at once ... not a killer, but still strange that it would be overlooked...

As I have stated elsewhere, I WILL NOT buy an ?tv until they support PS3 and Xbox 360 games, includes a DVR, a Blu-Ray drive (although HD-DVD COULD entice me also...) and a 3.5" 500 GB HDD. Oh yeah, it also has to double as a waffle iron and cost less than a hundred bucks.

Coverflow is cool and all that, but I don't use iTunes much at all other than to sync my tunes and especially my daily commute podcasts. as far as using iTunes for a 'music player' it just isn't happening even at all. It IS however, how I decide what goes on the iPod, and soon, what goes on the Apple TV. Perhaps then I will use the coverflow type of feature.

How about support Dolby Digital and DTS pass-through for real surround-sound?

How about support for 5.1 channel AAC so it can support the surround sound found in Apple's own high-definition movie trailers?

How about support MPEG-2 and CSS so it can play-back native DVD content without it having to be converted first?

How about supporting True HD (1080p) instead of stopping at 720p?

How about supporting H.264 High Profile, VC-1 and AACS so it can play-back native HD-DVD and Blu-ray content without it having to be converted first?

Personally... more codecs. That's it. DivX would be a good start.

Yes, I know it'll never happen. But that's what it would take to get me to buy an AppleTV. That and making iTunes support all video formats that Quicktime supports, which is a no brainer.

iTunes can already store (kinda) and play all the files that the QT codecs allow for.

Depending on what exactly you mean by this, iTunes does already do it. In terms of codecs, iTunes will play back anything you've got a QuickTime codec for, as long as, it would seem, the tracks are in an .mpg or .mov wrapper. AVIs it won't accept, even if they open and play O.K. in QuickTime. Using QT pro or DivX Doctor II, you can easily change the wrapper format from .avi to .mov.

It won't take AVIs or WMV, thus requiring conversion. Quicktime player can open them fine.

I recently noted the aspect ratio of some HD content is not right. I've had quicktime 1080P trailers playback in 4:3 in quicktime while they really were widescreen...

If QT can play them, then you can get them to play in iTunes. Open QT Pro, Save As a referenced movie., then drag that reference into iTunes, hence my "kinda" remark about iTunes storing such files.

Point taken that it's doable. I shouldn't have to do that though... it's not as if it's technically hard to get iTunes to accept the other files

Check the presentation settings. (Show Movie Properties > Presentation tab > uncheck "conform aperture to".

For some movie files (seems to always be NTSC D1 comps rendered out of After Effects), QuickTime will resize the movie from 720x480 to 640x480 because it's assuming the movie has non-square (0.9) pixels for broadcast.

Thanks for the help, but I can't seem to find the Movie Properties or presentation tab? You're talking about quicktime right? Anyway, it might be the file after all, I downloaded it as being 1080p but VLC and quicktime both say it's 1440 by 1080. I thought 1080p always means 1920 by 1080??

1080p technically only refers to the vertical lines so it's quite possible, though uncommon, for the horizontal resolution to be different.

That's not quite right. 1080 lines of vertical resolution = 1080 horizontal lines.

Yeah, that's in QuickTime (It shouldn't matter if it's Pro or not... I don't think). You can get it with command-J. You can also check the Movie Info window (command-I) for the Normal and Current sizes, if the aperture is affecting it, the current and normal sizes will not match up.

Correct. For example, most movies are filmed either at 1.85:1 or 2.35:1 aspect ratios, which would give the different number of vertical lines. I've never heard of an HD 1.33:1 video, but maybe someone would prove me wrong.
