I have an iPad Gen 1, iPad Gen 3, ATV2 and plan on getting a ATV3.  The iPad 3 and ATV3 are capable to playing and outputting 1080p content.  Will the ATV2 play 1080p content but at a down sampled 720p resolution or will it just play the available SD version of the video?  Or will I need to download the SD, 720p, and 1080p video in order to get the best picture out of the device that I am using?

AppleTV 2

    If you have multiple copies of content at different resolutions, the Apple TV will not choose which one it wants to play, it will play the one that you tell it to do.


    The Apple TV 2 is capable of playing 1080p video, however it will only output it at 720 p, it achieves this by resampling the video.
