Future Apple TV

in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
OK - I would buy an Apple TV today if it could DVDs or even better play Blue Ray.

Also, how about having the mini support HD rentals and Blue Ray as well?

    while we're on appleTV, a few questions:

    (a) any chance of support for DivX 3-6, mkv, .iso dvd files?

    (b) any chance of higher capacity hard drives i.e. >300GB?

    (c) any chance of plug-&-play support for external hard-drive with media files in them?

    Man I swear we get these threads every other week.

    DVR- Not going to happen people. Apple doesn't want you recording shows they want you downloading shows.

    Blu-ray- Not going to happen folks for the same reasons above with the addition that Blu-ray makes the ATV more expensive than it has to be.

    If you want a DVR or Blu-ray buy a standalone because you're NOT getting it from Apple in a consumer device anytime soon. Neither feature generates any revenue for Apple beyond the sale of the unit itself (which is already low margin)

    Hey personally I'd LOVE to see both features in a future version but where the rubber meets the road is Revenue/Profit.
