Apple TV question

Anyone have it? What do you use it for? Pros/cons......is it worth the money?

I have the 1st gen Apple TV.....I rent movies on it occasionally. I know the new ones can be used to view Netflix as well.

Is mainly just for streaming movies and such, right?

Mostly use it for Netflix.

I've even looking into getting a second device. Not sure i I'm going to get another Apple TV or something else. No device does everything I want it to yet.

One day...

I have the second generation. I handbrake my dvds to mp4s so I have a huge movie collection that I can easily access at any time. Also, me and my fiancee stream music and stream our pics on the tv.

You can use your iPad to broadcast right?

It's basically iTunes on your TV. On the newer one you can watch Netflix and stream from your iPad or iPhone....

If you get one you have to jailbreak it.

You don't need to jailbreak it and yes you can mirror your ipad to it. Like I said if you have Apple products it is a much have.

I bought it for my parents and they mirror stuff on to the tv. My dad loves the radio stations. Other than that, if you have an xbox or ps3 you can do the same things just about.

Is there any place you can buy a 2nd generation other than on eBay? I want to get one to jailbreak, but can't seem to find any

re: Apple TV question
Why do you want to jailbreak a wdtv live? It already streams every file.

ETA: I cut the cord about a year and a half ago. I researched a lot on what to buy and actually tried an AppleTV. It is crap compared to the WDTV.
