Remote for iOS Devices Updated to 2.1


Looks like Apple just released an update for the Remote app. This powerful app allows you to control iTunes and Apple TV from your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. It’s an awesome app and I love using it with Apple TV. Here’s what’s new in the 2.1 update:

What’s New in Version 2.1
• AirPlay video support to control iTunes on your computer to stream videos to an Apple TV
• Internet radio control to play thousands of internet radio streams in iTunes on your computer
• The ability to control iTunes on your computer to play Movies and TV shows that are rented from the iTunes Store
• Addresses issues connecting to an iTunes library or Apple TV
• Includes stability and performance improvements

AirPlay video support and internet radio control are the new features along with various bug fixes.

    What’s annoying is that iOS 4.2 doesn’t recognise the old Apple TV as a device it can stream to, even though iTunes still does.
    If you’ve got an old Apple TV, you could retire it to a bedroom or spare room. Perhaps you could tuck it away in the study and just use it as a music server for streaming to Airport Expresses (with attached speakers) spread around your home.
    Is there any hope that someone might find a ‘hack’ to run Airplay on the old AppleTV for video enjoyment without video converter for apple tv.
