If I plug my sky box into the Ethernet cable of my airport express I can get sky on demand and use my phone to control the sky box. It would be much handier if I could plug my sky box into the Apple TV as they are both beside the telly and that would free up my express to be used elsewhere. Is the Ethernet of Apple TV an input only and not a network extender?

Ethernet of any type is an input output type, Saying that I dont know how you would get an Apple TV to act as a bridge between a sky box and a router.

You would be better off with the Sky wireless adaptor
