    Question Emulation of AppleTV on Mac Mini

    Hi All,

    Not sure this is the right place as this could be in Mac Mini .
    But I was wondering is there a way to emulate AppleTV or iOS on Mac Mini in order to get the Apple TV features on the New Mac Mini.

    Does anybody try this ?

    Thanks for answer

    Is my question stupid ?
    I think functionalities like AirPlay video streaming or in App features provides more than Osx alone.
    Or I maybe miss something

    Well you know that iOS runs on arm instruction architecture and macs runs intel x86 instruction architecture.

    You can't just take atv2 iOS and load it on a mac and expect it to run.

    Atv1 ran a customised version of intel os x 10.4 - so if your mac can run 10.4 then you can run atv1 os. This was done at the time the atv1 was new. I doubt that you would be able to achieve this with any current model mac due to lack of compatible drivers.

    Atv1 lacks airplay support and it will not be updated to support this.

    So if your goal is airplay support on your current gen mac mini. You are out of luck.

    More realistic options are - wait for apple to add this to os x or hope that a 3rd party implementation of airplay is possible (highly doubtful as Apple seems keen on licensing airplay rather than opening it up as a standard)

    Thanks for your quick and clear answer Olethros !

    So I'll go for mac mini and cross finger for apple to move airplay to osx ... if one day.
