…at least in patent-world. AppleInsider found a patent related to an AppleTV DVR interface for picking programs to record. Since it was filed in October 2006, this might have been a feature they left out because all of Apple was drunk the week they made the Apple TV and left out the DVR part — that’s just my guess, seeing as how the thing has pretty much sucked on wheels until firmware 2.0 and even then it’s no great shakes.
Anger at being force to still use my SD TiVo aside, it seems like a cool addition to the wee box but would definitely require a hardware refresh.
