Thats what I mean, if I bought this today I would have to ditch everything else. [...] Sure you can add a switcher but sorta defeats the purpose.
The purpose? I have a Sony A/V receiver that I plug everything into and it switches beautifully between Apple TV, BluRay player, and a cable/DVR box. If I had a gaming box and a karaoke machine, it would handle those just fine as well. That's pretty much the point of one of those things: to have a central hub so you don't have to worry about daisy-chaining everything. Works wonderfully -- I highly recommend 'em =)
I hook my Apple tv directly to mt for video then hook the optical audio to my Onkyo receiver . Need to switch tv to different hdmi port and switch receiver to different import also when I use it. Suppose I could put both through receiver and only have oe switch.
I really like it. Never was one to watch youTube much untili got the Apple tv.
Wanted a way to show my still photos on my tv and for this it works well. Only glitch I have is that I lose my connection by wifi when my iMac sleeps. But still can show images from my iPad to tv
Like that I can control my Apple tv with my iPad as a remote
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
