Apple TV Software

Just in case you're wondering what's on the Apple TV hard drive, here's some juicy details:

• A stripped down version of OS 10.4.7, with no finder, 446MB (left image)
• Multiple hidden partitions
• Automator scripts for video and audio capture (right image)

The drive its self is a Fujitsu 40gb 4200rpm drive. The inclusion of video capture Automator scripts may be a hint that a Tivo-like recording add-on will be available in the future!

i think it might also be only for capturing a "preview" picture for display purposes in the menu... but only guessing because there is no input connector. a seperate hardware add-on (like req'd in most PCs for example) seems not to fit into apples "easy use - not too much cables" strategy...
 
Not true... the USB port would let you attach just about near anything.... DVD-RW, video converter ala EyeTV, or even an iSight for that matter.
 
Well, so you think that the PDF actions are part of some secret scanner add-on or something? The capture actions are there for one reason - they come with every installation of QuickTime
