If you’re a Netflix user in the US, you might be familiar with the ‘Instant Queue’ feature. With just a click, you can queue movies or episodes you’re interested in watching. But the problem is that after a thorough browsing of the Netflix catalog, the list gets crowded and cluttered and becomes practically useless. You need to browse again through hundreds of queued videos, to stream one. On the other hand, those outside the US have never had any sort of queuing, even after 5 years of existence.
The FireCore team’s aTV Flash software, known as “black”, has recently been updated to version 2.2. This update incorporates support for Apple’s latest 5.2 software update (iOS 6.1), which officialy opened up support for Bluetooth devices to pair with your Apple TV. This is very exciting for those of you who had accidentally, or perhaps purposely, updated your black boxes in the past weeks. For those of you who have not yet updated your device, you need to consider one important question prior to clicking that software update option. The question before you is simply: “do I use Plex, Remote HD, Rowmote, or XBMC on my Apple TV?” If your answer is yes you may want to hold off on the Apple update as Apple’s latest software update also breaks these tools. We are sure this will be fixed, but as of now any Apple TV running 5.1 or higher will not have access to the items listed above.
