Setting aside the fantasies of Apple rolling out an Apple TV with a 40″ screen, Apple has been making some small, but significant, improvements in the mark 2 and 3 Apple TVs (ATV) with its latest 5.1.1 firmware update, and with the iTunes 11 release.
The good news is that with the recently released Apple TV 5.1 firmware upgrade you’re able to use AirPlay to send audio content to AirPlay-enabled speakers and devices and use your ATV with multiple iTunes accounts. With the even newer 5.1.1 you get support for the Up Next option which gives you greater control over your musical selections. The bad news? Installing either or both is a pain in the rump.
