Apple TV V2.3 Update – the Good & the Bad

Apple TV v2.3

Last night Cuppertino released the latest upgrade for the Apple TV.  V2.3 has some interesting new features – like support for IR remotes other than the standard Apple one, but there are downsides too – it breaks the XBMC and Boxee installer.

From the Apple TV software updates page

  • AirTunes Streaming from Apple TV – Music can be streamed via AirTunes to Airport Express speakers or other Apple TVs in your house.
  • Third-party Remote Controls – Apple TV can now learn other remote controls and use them in addition to the Apple Remote.
  • Playlists – Playlists in iTunes that contain Movies, TV Shows, Podcasts, and Music Videos can now be seen on Apple TV.
  • Music Volume Control – Support for volume control in Music.

No doubt the hacked installer will be fixed soon though, you can keep an eye on this thread to see when its safe to update.
