Storage / TV Question for aTV Newbie


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts



I am interested in buying a new apple tv, but everywhere i read about apple tv i read that apple tv streams music, photos and videos from itunes library..


So must be the mac pc with the itunes library powered on?

So for what is the hdd in the apple tv?


I thought that the apple tv syncs all content from my itunes library on my mac including videos, music and photos locally to the apple tv harddrive.

So i don´t need to have my mac powered on when i want to listen to the music or watch videos when i am on my couch in front of my LCD TV


Because currently i use an Vista Media Center BareBone on my TV and I want to replace that one with an apple tv, but onely when there is no need for a powered on mac.


So please bring clarity into my thoughts


I also read that some people already brought eyetv to apple tv?!?!? Is it possible to record tv shows and schedule recordings on atv? Also use EPG?
