My husband recently got me Apple TV for “my” Birthday. It’s kind of like when Homer Simpson gave Marge a bowling ball… with the name “Homer” on it.
Well, it turns out I am actually using it and enjoying it more than I thought.
The first day we had Apple TV, I noticed my Itunes was playing music on my IMac that happens to be in the same room as the Apple TV. I thought maybe my husband turned it on, so I turned it off, because he is watching TV. I leave the room and return…ITunes is on again!! I look over at the hubby, he is way too comfy on the couch watching TV to have quick turned it on. (But he is Ninja like sometimes, so it is possible.) Just as I ask him “Did you turn on my ITunes?” he switches the show he is watching on AppleTV and my computer switched songs on ITunes. Eureka, the Apple TV remote controls the IMac computer, too.
We mainly use it to get NetFlix movies and shows. It is nice to catch up on the HBO and Showtime shows that I usually have to rent and watch the whole disc set in one night so I don’t have to pay for 2 nights.
We have noticed on some shows (especially Better Off Ted) that the streaming will stop or the sound cuts out. I think this is a NetFlix thing. But this problem is easily remedied by rewinding a little and starting from there. It sure beats renting a disc that stops just at the most suspenseful part of the movie and when you remove the disc, you find a huge scratch, which no amount of cleaning can fix. Then you have to wait until the next day to re-rent the same movie to find out “who-done-it”.
Here is a picture to show how small the Apple TV is.
