    The reason I ask this followup if you may is because I asked if you use your Apple TV what do you use it for the most and do you watch a lot of network...Well since you bought your FIRST Apple TV have you upgraded and still use one and how much?

    I purchased my Apple TV on September 28, 2013. How do I know? I still have a copy of the sales receipt saved in Evernote.........and yes, I use it almost daily.

    I bought my first and only tv as a Christmas present to myself on December 12, 2012 from Amazon. I don't have it anymore though because an update in autumn bricked it. The Apple Store gave me a replacement. As for the rest of your question, I answered it in your other thread. But one thing I forgot to mention is I AirPlay mirror my new iMac to my tv so I can play shows that aren't apart of Hulu Plus' offerings. I used it to also watch the Olympics since the NBC app doesn't support AirPlay. It works very well. I made an Automator script that allows me to activate mirroring and switch the sound output to my tv in one step via a keyboard shortcut. I do this via Mobile Mouse. My iMac and my tv are in different rooms which why the shortcut is necessary.

    ETA: The exact date of purchase.

    Gotta love the EverNote as a side comment here as I have many sales receipts in it as you know how i feel about the app.

    Mine was a Christmas gift from the wife a couple years ago. It's connected to the TV in the frog and doesn't get used.

    I bought an Apple TV 2 two years ago but it's still new in the box because I don't have a TV that will work with it yet. Maybe one day soon I'll get a TV and will be able to finally use it.

    You should be able to get adapters to make it work with any TV.

    It's an old Sony Trinitron from like 1998. Already been told there is no way to connect it. Eventually I'll get a new TV but I don't watch the old one as it is now which is why I never bought a new one.

    I buy all my shows and movies on iTunes and watch them on my 24" Samsung display. It's been good enough the past three years.

    If your monitor has a HDMI port and supports HDCP you should be able to use your Apple TV with it.

    I'm sure you can connect it. Not sure if it's worth it. You just need the right converter. Do an Amazon search for "hdmi converter to composite".

    Bought my first one a couple days ago. Use it religiously now, especially for MLB.TV, MLS Live and WWE Network.

    I've had it since the 2nd gen came out. I use it everyday. I stream NHL Game Center on it and love to do iPhone mirroring. Also use it for Netflix all the time (even though I have a smart TV).

    Had it since the latest gen came out. Don't use it much anymore; mainly just Netflix, Vevo and Airplay. Most media playback is done on a WD Live Hub. The local storage and massive amount file types it supports makes it an easy winner.

    Two years ago. It may get used a few times a month if that.
