iTunes 7.1 can sync up to 5 Apple TVs

itunes-cover-flow.jpgiTunes 7.1 was released yesterday and iLounge has found that you can sync up to a maximum of 5 Apple TVs. In addition, iTunes 7.1 now supports full-screen Cover Flow and there are also categorization options for TV shows and movies in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and the U.K. – hinting that residents in these countries will be able to buy TV shows and movies.

Click through to iLounge if you want all of the deets on what iTunes 7.1 brings to the table (they have a bunch of nice screenshots, to boot).

Btw, Vista still isn’t officially supported.

Update (3/6/2007) Btw, it appears there is a possibility that you may be able to play some of those iPod games on the Apple TV. In the same iLounge article, they found some text strings stating “All existing games on the Apple TV (name) will be replaced with games from this iTunes library.” If the Apple TV will support games – great – but I have zero desire to play Tetris, Pac-Man, etc. in my living room.

Update #2 (3/6/2007) According to Gizmodo, iTunes 7.1 is compatible with Vista but Apple doesn’t list it as a supported OS. Apple’s site specifically says, “Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 or later or Windows XP.”
