Do you plan on making an application for the new Apple TV box?

Indeed. We are looking into extending Pocketpedia to include support for Apple TV OS or a simpler app that talks to DVDpedia to directly sync information.

Will your solution allow one to view your collect and launch a movie to watch as well?
I have a large collection of media in .vob format in VIDEO_TS folders that I have stored on a NAS linked to each movie (i.e. file://NETWORK-ADDRESS/MOVIE-FOLDER). It would be ideal to be able to stream each movie to the Apple TV and not just view the collection details.

Thank you for the suggestion and letting us know the format of your linked movies. Ideally would be stream the movies just like the old DVDpedia Front Row plugin used to do, but haven't made it that far in development yet to know what is possible on the Apple TV OS with the different formats.

Any new information about the app for Apple TV 4?
When is it expected to be released?

Not yet at the beta stage, but being integrated into Pocketpedia, using a lot of the work we have already done for Pocketpedia. Likely start out simple and then add features from there. No dates.

I would love to see a tie into the DVDpedia library I have on my server with the AppleTV Apps. The search/link of the database entry to a movie on the server or in your library would be awesome. I have a mix of VOB and MKV files that can be played through Air Video Server.

However, just being able to see the library without pulling out my phone or iPad would be appreciated beyond belief. :wink:

Hi Conor, I see your post was a few months ago. Just wondering how things are going for the apple tv integration.

It's done, just waiting on some graphics. The graphic that appear for the top shelf when selecting an app in the Apple TV. Might just go with a simple version of the logo, as I just finished the service that populates that area with the recently viewed, so the graphic would only appear sometimes.

Do let me know your iTunes email via private email and I can add you to the beta test group. Although by now there is unlikely to be another round, might go straight to review, once I am done with that.

Hello.

I'd also like to be included in the Beta test group if possible.
Or it might be to late...
When is the release planned?

Last beta was done, now to review. Hopefully it will be quick, we have to follow it with a release of the Pedia apps, to get those updated before releasing, but working on the final touches on those as well.

Review is done and ready to release. Finishing unrelated touches on 5.5 of the Pedias that will be needed for syncing to Apple TV, should be a few days.
