    Uploading or Downloading?
    Hey guys I was curious if when I stream videos and music from my Mac or iPad to my Apple TV if I am using up my downloads or if i am simply uploading.

    Not sure entirely what you're getting at but if it's internet/broadband usage you're referring to then the answer is near zero.

    When you connect your AppleTV to you Mac via home sharing it connects to the internet to validate and authorise your Apple ID.

    After that any data transfer from your iTunes Library to Apple TV is done via you're internel network, not the internet.

    The same is true if you use AirPlay on your iPad to 'throw' music/video to your AppleTV - all over your internal network.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
