I just bought an ATV and I'm already thinking about selling it. I want to listen to iTunes and movies over my stereo which is hooked up through my cable box. But the ATV has no audio out other that optical audio which means my 2 year old AV reciever is useless because it doesn't have HDMI or optical audio just RCA in/out. I really don't want to buy another reciever. I currently use a MBP laptop that is doing everything the ATV can do and more but I thought I'd get the ATV to free up the laptop. But now I gotta invest in all kinds of extras to get the full potential of the ATV. Sometimes I frickin hate new technology!
