Hugh, not that you want an extra step, but Airvideo converts files to apple-friendly formats.
I stand corrected! I did indeed mean the iPad for now. My understanding is that VLC will be released as well though for the iPhone and again, if they are allowing that functionality on these IOS devices then I see no reason why they wouldn't allow it on the ATV2 down the road. But hey, then again it is Apple we're talking about so who knows!It has launched for the iPhone? I thought VLC only launched their mobile player for the iPad.
If ATV2 does in deed gets apps, then a good one would be the CineXPlayer. This allows me to play XVID files on my iPhone. It would be nice if i could move this functionality to the ATV2 too.
When you turn it on, the DNS-323 shows up in your iTunes and you get to browse the media right from there. No need to manually add or move anything. Has worked fine for me on my iMac but my DNS-323 is pretty stock, unlike many of the more advanced people hereI also can not get the iTune server to work on my DNS-323. Can someone tell me what the benefit would be for this anyway? Now I just manually add the media from my 323 to iTunes.
Works fine on my DVI equipped 2006 Panasonic Plasma. At first I was getting some weird lines around the edges and some pint vertical lines in the middle of the screen. Once I turned off Strobing it and restarted the TV it was all good. I'm using a HDMI to DVI cable.Really disappointed in ATV2 so far for one big reason - it doesn't work with my HDTV.
