I realize that, but I have no interest in setting up a HTPC in my living room. I stream any local content with a Boxee Box and Netflix, MLB, HBO Go, and Hulu through the Apple TV. I just wish Charter would get on with it and cut out the need to use the iPad to Airplay HBO Go. It works great and was very happy when it launched, but now that every other cable company that provides HBO Go allows use of the app directly on the Apple TV, I'm annoyed I have to go through an extra step with Charter, especially when they allow the exact same functionality already through the XBOX.
