Will The Apple Extreme replace the BT Home Hub (Black one)
I am on BT Infinity and have a Home Hub (think it is HH3 - the black one) and I am having major issues using my Apple TV's (ATV 2 and ATV3) with the HH due to constant network drop outs. Will The Extreme replace my HH ) I have a BT modem connected to the Hh which I could connect to the extreme).

I've replaced our home hub 3 with an AirPort Extreme and it works just fine, a big improvement, no more loss of network.

The reason for the drop outs is the Homehub sees the broadcast packets transmitted from the AppleTV as spamming the network and so shuts them down. I had the same issue. The wireless stopped but cable continued.
A quick reboot of the homehub fixed this. i know this is not ideal but it is a workaround.
I am in a similar place to you and hoping the new APExtreme will replace the Homehub.
