Questions for new Apple TV owners
I just had a few questions to ask if you wouln't mind answering:
1) Does the streaming depend on the processor of your computer? For example when I stream from my PC to the PS3 it's pretty smooth but when I stream from my laptop to the PS3 it's pretty damn slow.
Actually....that was my only question.

My set up is like this:
HDMI to TV
Optical Audio to Stereo
TV Optical to Stereo
If I want to see Apple TV, I turn on my TV and sound goes the normal route.
If I just want to play music, I find a song on my iPhone/Laptop and AirPlay, I switch the stereo receiver to the other optical, no waste of power leaving the tv on.

Good news/bad news - Bad news is every kind of tos/HDMI to analog RCA converter/cable I can find is about $60+/-shipping. Good news is Amazon sells Onkyo receivers for 5.1 to 7.2 $220 to 379 that should produce pretty good sound. I've been using a 2-channel Onkyo for years; good quality for the price, but same - only RCA in.
Wish I could get the Netflix to work, keeps telling me can't reach server and when I go to the Netflix website, it tells me I need an activation code from the device. Have to call....Cheers, Kevin.
