Hope I can find my Apple TV to upgrade Laughing

To be honest, I gave up on the thing ages ago.

The main screen isn't doing much for me (it may even be worse), but I'll take the internet radio. I just wish they would provide some more information about the channels. I don't see what rate they are being streamed at.

How about paying a little attention to Front Row Mr. Jobs? The thing isn't working right with Snow Leopard on older Macs! Crying or Very sad

The main menu looks better, but it's basically the same once you get past that point. I probably would have been more excited about them opening the USB port in the back. I have the 40GB model, so it really doesn't hold all that much.

Found and installed it, but came away unimpressed. It would be cool if they added Hulu and Netflix under that Internet tab. Those are things that could get me interested again. I don't really feel like messing around with Boxee at this point. I think this update may have broken support anyways.

One day Apple is going to regret not porting some of this stuff over to Front Row and building a really special desktop media center. I'm just saying.
