I am afraid to update my Mac to iTunes 11 since I still use an original AppleTV (the old one with the hard drive) on one of my televisions. Does anyone know if the original AppleTV is compatible with iTunes 11?
I ended up testing this myself.
- Syncing content works
- Restoring the device works
I haven't exhaustively tested everything possible, but I did write up what I have tested in more detail on my blog.
If you buy from the store on the 1st gen Apple TV, you can no longer copy from the Apple TV back to your computer through iTunes 11, or atleast I have not found a way. You are forced to download the content twice. I'm getting a lot of Error -50's when downloading on my computer. I was avoiding these by downloading on my Apple TV and then copying back to my computer but this is no longer an option. iTunes 11 has removed some very useful features in my opinion.
