== Welcome to the AwkwardTV Wiki ==
 
 
 
As you probably know, [http://www.apple.com/appletv/ Apple TV] is a set-top box manufactured by [http://www.apple.com/ Apple]. Out of the box, it is enabled to stream digital content from any computer running iTunes.  As there is [http://www.apple.com/appletv/specs.html little information] provided about what is going on "under the hood" of the Apple TV, this is a place to collect and share information.
 
 
 
This website is dedicated to finding additional uses for the Apple TV by ([[AwkwardTV:General_disclaimer|legitimately]]) enabling its [[Potential Capabilities]], and is a place for the community to share ideas, discoveries and solutions. As such, when you add any '''''comments or questions''''' (not contributions to an informational page) please sign it using the signature button, http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/skins/common/images/button_sig.png, or four tildes (<nowiki>~~~~</nowiki>).  It is for informational purposes only.
