What features are coming to Apple's set-top box that were suggested by a random survey to current set-top box owners

The following questions, which were directed at current Apple TV set-top box owners, were asked by the Apple design team to further improve the functionality of the set-top box.

  • What size display you watch
  • What type of display (LCD, plasma, etc)
  • How robust the audio system (TV speakers, stereo, 5.1, 7.1 surround)
  • How often the device is used for photos, home movies, renting movies
  • Go with Apple TV remote or is it programmed into a universal?
  • Is it synced to iTunes, and how much do you have stored there
  • How much Apple TV content comes from the likes of YouTube, BitTorrent, your own DVDs and more
  • What other devices are in your household (Blu-ray, gaming consoles, etc)

The online survey asks for demographic information, then asks users about how frequently the use Apple TV for various tasks, from renting movies to viewing photos to using it for home movies and with MobileMe Gallery.
