    Would picking up an Apple TV offer me any additional functionality based upon what I already have??

    Note that I also have a PS3, which has a much better Netflix implementation than TiVo.

    With Apple TV you will also get:
    - An easy to use iTunes extender that can play iTunes files that are protected with DRM
    - Internet Radio
    - WSJ Online Channel as well as Vimeo, NBA, NHL and MLB apps
    - Access to the iTunes store where you can make purchases
    - Ability to stream music from any iOS device or computer via AirPlay
    - Airplay mirroring from an iPad
    - I also like the Netflix interface on Apple TV

    Hope that helps!

    If you are not already an Ibot then you'll need to be. Otherwise, you can keep your current toys and content sources.

    for me, a roku was a better upgrade because i could use free unlimited amazon prime streaming. i have all apple computers, etc but getting that stuff onto the TV didn't really excite me.

    Include iCloud in the list of Apple TV features. I have my 15,000 tune library stored on iCloud. I can now pipe all my music and playlists through my Apple TV to my A/V system without needing my computer to be on.
