yeah i thought about that on Superbowl Sunday (when the laptop was being a little bitch)... i don't know if i'm that dedicated though. i have 2 Wii, 2 Xbox, a Blu-ray player, a TV, a Windows laptop, and the iMac all with their own independant capability of playing Netflix in one way or another. besides working with a 5 dollar remote app what value add would an Apple TV contribute?
on another note... Netflix is playing on these devices by using Silverlight so that might need to be what is controlled. i wonder if there is an app for that
Yeah, an Apple TV really would be redundant given everything else you have. The only other advantage would be if you have a lot of movies or TV shows in your iTunes library you want to watch. Wait, no. You could still just watch those using iTunes on your iMac and the remote app would work. Ignore my advice unless you have a TV in another room you want to have access to all that.
It really does feel like stepping back into the stone age when I’m watching a movie on my Mini through a projector and surround sound stereo but I have to get out of my damn recliner if I want to pause or play the thing.
