Forums page

by editor @ AppleTVHacks.net on July 23, 2007


OK, let’s not talk about the patch for a moment. I actually stopped updating the site waiting for the permission to publish it. Last I heard is that it will be approved any day now.

I realized a few weeks back that this site does not a forums page. The only way of communication for the readers is via comments. This is far from efficient. Luckily, I do have a forums page on the other site, appletvsource.com.

I would like some suggestions as to what topics I should put on that page to better suit the Appletvhacks.net crowd. Leave me some messages.

You can access appletvsouce’s page via http://forums.appletvsource.com .

Thanks a bunch.

    between awkwardtv and hackintosh forums, do we really need another forum to check?

  • Moduz

    I know it is a small thing. But could you make the forum web address in the second to last sentence a link?

  • luck

    Moduz, thank you for that. I didn’t realize that the editor didn’t convert the url to a link automatically. I have always used Joomla. Still getting used to WordPress.

    Thanks again.

    Hi-
    I just purchased the 160GB Apple TV and I have to admit I’m disappointed in the overall sound quality due to lack of treble. I have very hi quality mp3′s and I’m using the fiber optical connection. But the sound continues to be very flat with no life and right down terrible IMO. I do love the sound quality of my iPod using the treble booster setting. Can someone tell me if there’s anything that can be done about this because it’s about to be returned to the Apple store if not which sux because they’re going to slap me with a ridicules 10% restocking fee …

    Thanks!
