    Default Appletv doesn't play live TV(web TV)

    Guys,
    I can't play any web based live tv.I use firefox 3.6 .It plays some channels but I can't get full screen using flip4mac.Tried couchsurfer pro and still doesn't play those web based live tv.I have perian,quicktime components,flash installed on appletv.Even though firefox plays no keyboard when it opens firefox.Can I install any professional browser or player that plays live tv.
    I never thought appletv has these many issues.
    I am trying to play all live channels from
    iDesiTV.com : Home of South Asian Entertainment - Categories

    Anyone can guide me?
    On Windows PC when I play most of the channels requires windows media player 11 .

    As someone that lives in the US VuNow is a non-starter for me. Anyhow if this functionality that you are looking for is crucial for you that box may be the better fit if it works as advertised. Personally im more than happy with my appletv, but i also dont watch a lot of web video so we definitely have different priorities. Installing a web browser and installing windows media player are two totally separate things, microsofts player does not install any quicktime web components afaik so that really isn't a viable option. I dont even think windows media player 11 exists for the mac. Im pretty certain your highest version available is 9 and it probably runs like garbage (like most microsoft products on the mac). flip4mac also only supports up to wmv-9. if you need a website that leverages wmv-10 or wmv-11, or any form of DRM wmv i really doubt the appletv is your best suited device. why anyone that is serious or a prestigious company relies on a horrible wmv format only available to windows clearly has no regard or respect for their mac users.

    true i shouldn't boil it down as purely windows vs mac because them im just as bad as those shortsighted executives that probably care more about some crappy DRM then supplying more people with a service.
