Apple previewed the first generation Apple TV (referred to as iTV) in September of 2006, and again in January of 2007 alongside the original iPhone. Based on a stripped-down version of OS X Tiger and featuring a 40-160GB hard drive, it served only to sync the stuff from iTunes on your computer to your TV. In September of 2010, Apple launched an all-new, second generation Apple TV. Based on iOS, it went from big to small, and from syncing to streaming. It also maxed out at 720p. At least until March 2012 when Apple introduced the current, third-generation Apple TV.
Rumors persist that Apple has a fourth generation Apple TV, though features remain unclear. As for a full-on Apple television, Apple TV series stand out for video playback.

Other You May Concern
1. Can the Apple TV support AC3 5.1 audio?
The answer is Possible. According to my experience, the 2012 new Apple TV is not able to decode 5.1 surround sound to stereo by itself, if you want to play AC3 5.1 (Dolby Digital surround) audio you will need an AV receiver.
2. Does the Blu-ray rip play silence or gray screen in iTunes?
No. iTunes does not play video contents with AC3 audio, but the Apple TV pass-through presets create video with both AC3 and AAC, so iTunes will find and play the AAC track instead.
3. Does the Apple TV Dolby Digital Pass-through preset work with iPad?
Yes. The preset also work with new iPad. It plays stereo by default. If you´d like to play surround sound effect, enable Airplay to have iPad stream the video to Apple TV, which pass-through AC3 audio to receiver.
