    Interesting, I was listening to some music on Apple TV via AirPlay from my iPad New and started a streaming session from Cinemax. The music stopped playing, expected, but the audio for the movie came out through AirPlay on my stereo.

    It did that for live streaming as well in the previous release.

    If you try to use HBO Go or Max GO it won't display the video, only audio. I think those premium channels wrote code into those apps to prevent them from being displayed on other devices. Makes sense if you don't subscribe to those services but grab someone's login & password to watch on your TV.

    Seems like a nice update, can't wait to get home and install it. I wonder how laggy it will be on my wifes 1st gen 64GB model. Maybe it will finally get her to agree with upgrading to a new 3rd gen model.

    So the live streaming to iPad outside the home still doesn't include live tv support?

    When you select the "Watch on iPad" tab we can only live stream outside the home what is under "Movies", "TV Shows", & "Netwoks", correct? The "Live TV" tab still requires us to be on the same home network as an HD-DVR?

    Does this app allow streaming when the iPad is not in the US?

    <flame suit on>Does this app fail when the device is jailbroken?</flame suit off>
