It's been a busy afternoon. I finally broke down and purchased a Centris 660AV (but unfortunately one with the new manual inject floppy drive) to replace my SE/30, which will eventually handle server duties. As I caught my breath from writing the check, Apple announced Macintosh TV, a $2,079 device that combines a 32 MHz 68030-based Macintosh, a 14" color television, and a double-speed CD-ROM player. The propaganda claims that the Macintosh TV can be connected to a VCR, camcorder, laserdisc player, or video game player, but since I have only a VCR and I already have a TV, I'm not worried that I should have waited for Macintosh TV. Besides, as I understand it, all of the TV features are exclusive of the Macintosh features, which makes it a less interesting box to high-end users. Still, it's a cool idea that's bound to be popular in the home and education markets, and I'll look at it in more depth next week.
Enable Apple TV Subtitles
While a video is playing, hold down the Select (center) button on your Apple TV remote to bring up the Options menu, then choose the Subtitles view. If there are embedded or external subtitles associated with the video they will appear in the list. If you are using Silver Screen to AirPlay video to the Apple TV, it will dynamically extract the subtitles and send them to the Apple TV.
