I just spent some time with my dad evaluating the new $99 hockey puck Apple TV and must say I'm pretty impressed with the Netflix integration.

It won't help my mom out though who likes to watch Thai dramas off YouTube - she needs autoplay for playlists which hasn't been incorporated into any consumer devices as far as I can tell...

so the actual reason I'm here is to just make note of this hack for the old Apple TV (1G):

yes, my dad still has an old skool Sony TV - I am quite certain it's over 20 years (yes, that's 2 decades!) old and still running strong! they sure don't make electronics like they used to though my 2G iPhone is still going strong! (knock on wood!)

ok - enough for now - update this page after I've played around what you can turn that doorstop of an Apple TV 2G into!
