This is all very new to me but, I have done a lot of reading around and before I just start doing anything I wanted to check in and see if anyone knows the best way to make an apple tv see another computer's videos...

like front row on a mac you can put an alias folder into the movies folder and view the movies in front row. the movies are all .mov

Is the best way to put os x on the apple tv?

i tried to go the cheaper route instead of getting a mac mini... maybe i should have just went with the mini...

i hope that makes some sense...

thanks
