We’ve talked a lot about the iPad lately, but that’s not the only updated hardware Apple rolled out this month. The company also introduced a new version of the Apple TV, featuring 1080p support and an updated interface. And it’s this new Apple TV that’s the focus of this week’s Macworld Podcast.

I’m joined by two Apple TV experts—senior editors Christopher Breen and Dan Frakes. They share their experiences with the updated Apple TV software—which also works on the second-generation Apple TV—and the new hardware.

Dan Frakes wrote our hands-on look at the updated Apple TV software while Chris Breen put together a very helpful Apple TV troubleshooting guide. You’ll also want to check out Chris’s analysis of what Apple’s trying to do with the Apple TV.

During the podcast, I mention the quarterly sales figures for the Apple TV—a product that Apple still refers to as a “hobby.”

And of course, Jason Snell wrote our Apple TV review, when he wasn’t busy reviewing the new iPad. Oh, there we go, talking about the iPad again.
