Why are people offering to trade their ATV3 for an ATV2?

Because the ATV2 can be jailbroken (you can install media streaming software like XBMC and probably Plex on it, among other things) and the ATV3 can't and isn't likely to be ever.

Best legal scam on eBay...for the ones offering new ATV3 for ATV2. If you have an ATV2 that you want to upgrade, I'll gladly send an ATV3 to you for free..

Err, I just sold both of my 2nd Gen Apple TV's for $200 a piece. We've been using the X-Box 360 as a media hub...should I ever feel the need to go back to ATV, I would only be spending $99.

I think "scam" is an overstatement -- the ATV2 clearly is of higher value than the ATV3 in certain markets.

Which is why I said scam. Many don't realize that the ATV2 is much better to buy than the ATV3, and they might think it a great deal to upgrade to a unit that can do 1080. Which I suppose it is, if you're not jailbreaking.

Where did you sell them? I'd gladly part with my ATV2's for $200 a piece.

Im not going to be jailbreaking. I just watch NHL centre Ice

I do have my ATV2 hooked up to a 1080P tv. So I might sell this and buy that while making a profit.

I had no idea ATV2s were so valuable. I have 2 sitting on shelves after I had upgraded to ATV3s. I had JBed them but never actually used the apps I installed after JBing.

Yup, about to flip mine for an ATV3 and make some $ in the process. I have no use for jailbreaking. I can get to 1080p and be paid to do so. Works for me.

Dumb question - but how can I tell if I have an ATV 2 or 3? I've got no interest in JB'ing mine; and if I have at 2, I'd be more then willing to swap for a 3...

N/M - The Model# is on it... Just really, REALLY hard to see (black on black in small letters) - A1378

So, I've got an ATV 2nd Gen - PM me with offers...

Did you buy it before March 7, 2012? Then it's an ATV2.

Seriously -- did Apple not put the version (generation) on the product itself?

There is a tiny model # printed on the bottom... A1378 is ATV2...

No idea, I don't own one so I provided a credible source to help.
