A couple months ago I bought my first Toshiba 26" 720 flat panel TV. Been very disappointed with quality of SD Dish network satellite reception. HD is more than I want to pay. I don't even want to pay for SD, much less HD. Today I gave myself a present and bought a new Apple TV. That, with Netflix streaming, Curtis is very, very happy. Tomorrow, after the playoffs, I cancel my Dish subscription. Something I've been wanting to do for years. So far, I'm very impressed.

The first thing I did when I bought the flat panel was buy a antennae. Unfortunately, I live in a valley, and Radio Shack was right. Reception was terrible. Returned it the next day. Sports is about the only thing I might miss, but that's what neighbors are for!
Netflix is the bomb. (Whatever that means. Is that term PC correct these days?)
WHATEVER! Tonight I'm happy. Apple ease of use came through once again.
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!
