Nope, it's done it from day 1. Now, if you're talking about 1080p...  
no. The AppleTV can't do that. Technically, 720p is HD. And for  
reference... I can't really tell much difference between 720p and  
1080p. 1080i... that sucks (I'm one of those lucky chaps who's  
susceptible to the flicker inherent in it)

Quicktime has had an "Export to Apple TV" function that allows 720p  
for several months now. It plays back at 24fps, which is movie frame  
rates. It's quite nice actually... and yes, it's H264.
