I'm interested in getting an Apple TV, but I'm unsure of it's capabilities and how it works. I currently have a Mac Mini, my second mac ever. I am by no means a well educated Mac user, I just use it to do my web surfing, email, spreadsheets and download music. My question is this, can I watch Apple TV content on my television, my monitor isn't all that great and the sound stinks. My second question is, can I download my DVD library into Apple TV or iTunes? Can I use Apple TV like a Tivo unit and record television shows? Thankyou.

First I suggest you checkout Apple - Apple TV - Rent HD movies and TV shows, stream Netflix, and more as it answers almost all your questions.
