Apple TV - Thinking of buying
Right I'm thinking of buying the above as I keep hearing great things about them and I'm wondering why I don't have one to be honest.
Need to understand a few things first.
How do they connect to the TV itself from the apple tv unit - By scart cable?
Can you install app's or do they just come pre loaded, like Netflix? What other app's are there?
I can project whats on my iPad and iPhone wireless right - Correct?
Anything else, tips & advise - Then please let me know why you love this device?
I'm literary just about to go and buy one today - Thought I should post here first to understand the device fully first.

I've looked up xbmc and ice films on the web. So I thought I would try it out on my iPad first.
I've installed xbmc via Cydia on my jailbroken iPad. But I can't work out how to actually watch a film.
I assume you have to run the hosts through xbmc or something like that.
Also, I guess that xbmc from Cydia for the iPad is the same as running it on apple tv.
Can you give some help here or point me in the right direction.

Thanks for sending me on a mad one where I will waste loads of time trying to work something out. Lol. Only joking. It will be fun.
Thanks for pointing me in the direction.

Same here, used to own a Roku player, but now enjoy my ATV very much!
@1982ollie, FYI, Apple’s $99 set-top box: Apple TV supports 1080p playback and can access the iTunes store so you can watch movies, play Internet radio, use a handful of services like Netflix and YouTube, and, if you pay $25 per year, access your entire music library including ripped CDs through iTunes Match. If you use an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, its most compelling, exclusive feature is Apple’s AirPlay wireless streaming. With AirPlay on the Apple TV, you can stream photos, video, and music stored on your iOS device to your HDTV. During a party, this would allow the host to pump music through a home theater system while changing the music from the iPhone.

Well, I haven't view springboard layout on it, I always do it via photo stream and video app like Netflix, youtube~
