    Using Time casule for itunes is very slow

    I use a 2TB TC to run my iTunes library from, and a 2nd gen Apple tv to play them and it takes along time to play the media, It sometimes fails and I have to airplay it from my Macbook, which takes a while too.

    I have 600gig of media on there, could this be the problem?

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    So, you're mounting an external disk (via wifi?) and it takes a while to spool to your iTunes / AppleTv before it starts playing?

    Yes, trying to backup 600GB of data using a wireless connection is nuts.

    Connect the Time Capsule directly to the machine for the first backup. Then you can go wireless and it will take a lot less time.

    Yes Mike, all the media is via wi-fi. And it takes a very long time to work.
