I have multiple AppleTV's and find them very "finished", polished, and useful.
That is correct, no DVR there.
I did this throughout last season and it worked great. The streaming quality from ST2G is a little more pixelated than the acutal satellite video signal but it is HD and it looks pretty damn good when hooked up to a big screen.
iPad for Sunday Ticket output through HDMI definitely works well.
If it works thru the HDMI cable then it will also work thru AppleTV.
I'm just answering the question. I agree with you though.
The OP was about Sunday Ticket but HBO Go has more content (currently) than HBO On Demand.
Just curious... I assume the resolution of the output to your TV matched the resolution on your iDevice screen. Is that right? Or does the output upscale? Wondering if the higher resolution display on the iPad 3 makes a difference in what you'd see on TV, or if the resolution would be the same. I assume DirecTV would need to update their ST2G app to take advantage of the higher resolution if that is the case.
Mikellie, I sent you a pm with a related question, but very off topic.
What are those things that need adding or finishing??
Simple solution: use the directv app instead of hbo to go app. You turn on AirPlay video mirroring and anything playing in the app will play on your apple tv. (hbo, Cinemax, starz).
I have AppleTV and consider it one of the most finished, polished, and useful products in my house :lol:
Simple, sure, a solution, unfortunately not. HBOGO has things available that are not available on live HBO or On Demand.
I don't mean to be rude but I am not asking for any advice or "how to" around HBOGO. I know what does and doesn't work and the alternatives. I was using HBOGO as an example of why you might want to use your iPad rather than your D rcvr in response to a question a few posts back.
1. If I'm watching a video on my iPad, I can only "AirPlay" the audio.
2. Mobile Me is on Apple TV, but it doesn't exist (as far as I can tell)
3. The music icon only works if you have iMatch. How about playing my iTunes purchased songs from here?
That said, I like the product. I sold my Roku in favor of Apple TV.
