9to5Mac is citing „reliable sources familiar with Apple’s upcoming product release” that claim Apple is launching a new Apple TV alongside the iPad 3 on March 7. This is not a long-rumored Apple TV set but an updated Apple TV set-top box.

9to5Mac’s source says the new Apple TV will include Bluetooth 4.0 capability and a faster processor, possibly “a variation of the dual-core A5 chip”, required to stream rumored upcoming 1080p iTunes content.

9to5Mac also reports that they’ve been hearing of a “mystery accessory” that will launch alongside the new iPads and Apple TV. “We’re not sure what it is, but it’s called “B82″ internally. The product is likely some accessory, probably ranging from either a cable, cover, or new audio remote,” according to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman. He believes it could be an “improved remote” that would take advantage of a new Bluetooth protocol.

    And Why not an hd camera plugged into the atv to enable FaceTime with your tv.

    I hope they will integrate a 1GB network card. Streaming of XBMC 1080P video’s often give me a buffering problem on the atv2.

  • Robvu27

    This normally happens due to the file being too large (file>2GB).

  • Jeroen2289

    Well this only happens when I try to stream a true 1080P file. All other media files play without buffering problems.
    All my movies are larger then 2GB and only the real bluray movies are giving problems.

    As with all things apple, instead of releasing it all in one go, they’ll release it over 10 generations. Apple…hitting the same parts of the brain as religion.
