First you should know that aside from netflix (and the heat issue) this is more of a downgrade than an upgrade. Video Stutters, you can't browse the full store to flag stuff to buy, your video collection is kinda buried and the sorting of your content is buggy. This will all likely be fixed in the future, but for now it's frustrating that the 3 year old atv is still the better product.
1. The atv can only stream but it can stream only from a running itunes server so anything you can see in your running itunes will, most likely, be visible on your atv.
2. Buying TV from itunes will have it show up properly in the apple tv. It will see the new title almost instantly after it's finished downloading and you can begin watching it.
3. I will defer to people who use playlists but a quick search of this forum will reveal people who have problems with them.
4. I personally, would not recommend upgrading unless you really want netflix on demand. If you don't care about netflix, or your tv, blu-ray, or gaming console can do netflix then I'd wait for a few updates to see the bugs ironed out. Besides winter is coming. The v1's are great space heaters
