Hi, I have a mixed network at home, 2-2011 15" MBP's, a mixed bag of W7 laptops, a W7 photo workstation and a Windows Home Server.

I want to stream my I tunes movies and music to my AV/TV system.

Will the ATV2 connect to my WHS? I would prefer to keep all the media there since it is always on, instead of one of the other various computers which may or may not be turned on?

My current choices are a ATV2 or perhaps a WD Live TV

Suggestions?

My WHS has died so can't do any testing - but give this a read - link.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
