If you have searched the Apple TV official website, we will find that the biggest limitation of Apple TV is the lack of codec support (like Xvid, DivX, etc.) and not even having the ability to do basic surround sound like Dolby Digital 5.1. These issues were resolved almost immediately after the Apple TV was released, although the hacks were somewhat less than practical. Something as simple as getting your Apple TV to, say, sync and recognize your Xvid movies as playable was no simple feat.
