Regrets not buying AAPL stock since Jan. ’07 (85.05)

Apple TV Take 2 Review. Visual Hub continues as must have App for Apple TV. Oh… 10.5.2.

Ah behold, thy beloved Apple TV has (finally!) received the update that we have been waiting for. We’re gonna touch on a quick review of certain functionality. If you want a full run down check out these reviews here; AppleInsider, MacRumors, and MacDailyNews to name a few. We are focusing on a few real world testing and coverage.

  • Rented “Star Trek II” in HD – Movie rentals UI interface is absolutely gorgeous and intuitive. Audio (through Toslink, 5.1 Dobly Digital is absolutely stunning. Picture quality seems vastly improved (will be viewing newer source soon).
  • Podcast directory is spot on. No need to download to your Apple TV. Content is streamed and favorites can be saved, allowing a full viewing of new and previous episodes without the use of a PC or Mac.
  • Previously encoded flicks have had an output bump, looking better than before.
  • HD movie trailers are also a nice added tweak.

Also, one of the greatest companion apps to the Apple TV, Visual Hub (via TUAW) has rendered an update to support full 5.1 and AC3 encoding when creating your own content to the device. We here at TheMNT simply love VH, one of the best $23.32 best spent so far. More to come.

Also… 10.5.2 now available. 😉
