I do not own a TV and I don't have a cable subscription. I don't want to get either one of those things. I do, though, occasionally like to watch broadcast TV (or recordings of broadcast TV) on my MacBook Pro or iPad. Aereo was a great solution. Now that Aereo is gone how can I create an approximate replacement for use in my home? [more inside]

I just got a subscription to Hulu Plus. I'm trying to get it set up to play on my TV via Apple TV. However, I am not even seeing the Hulu Plus app as an option in my menu when I start up Apple TV. I've restarted my Apple TV device a few times and still not seeing it. It's supposed to be on the second row of the menu, next to Netflix. It is not there. Why is this and how can I fix it?
I have a new (to me -- it's about 10 months old overall, I think) HDTV that, unfortunately, doesn't have an Ethernet port nor does it have wireless connectivity. It was a gift, of sorts, so I'm kind of stuck with it. Since I had a very old standard set, it's still an upgrade. Now, I'm looking at options for HD television content, like maybe the Roku, AppleTV or any other neat solutions that I don't know about yet. [more inside]

We're ditching our cable and researching alternatives.
We have two HD TiVo Series 3 boxes that we're not using (because the cable cards provided by Comcast would not work).
We're thinking of a set-up involving OTA television (we live in Atlanta, so reception should not be a problem) + something streaming, but we're not sure if we want to keep the TiVos or invest in something else -- Roku? Boxee? AppleTV?
And here's one major issue for me -- live sports (mainly the NFL and college football)?
I'd like to play blu-ray discs and stream Netflix. It shouldn't be this hard. [more inside]
We haven't had a proper TV in over a decade. I would like to have something other than my laptop to watch streaming media, DVDs, Netflix, etc. Can you explain how this works in 2013? I imagine we'd buy something like this Samsung LED HDTV
and some kind of speakers. Then what? Do we plug it into a laptop? What exactly is Apple TV and how does it stack up against Roku? This seems like it should be a simple question, but I feel like a caveman emerging from the dark, and am fairly bewildered at all of the options and variations out there. [more inside]

How do I get my iMac to wake on demand when it's asleep and asked to do so? These instructions
from Apple are pretty straightforward on how to set it up for Bonjour, but I can't get it to work when it receives a request from Apple TV to wake up. It's an iMac running Lion with a Time Capsule set up as the Base Station. The iMac supports Wake on Demand over Wi-Fi and ethernet (it's connected over Wi-Fi). Time Capsule and Lion have the latest updates. I've found recommendations on Google but nothing has worked. Any troubleshooting pointers? (Bonus question: how can I get it to wake up from outside my network?) Thanks.
