    Default Multiple Apple TVs

    I decided to put an ATV in my kids room.

    What's the best way to network a large external HD?

    Currently I have a 2TB HD hooked up to my home PC and connect my ATV to it wirelessly.

    I know there is a way to utilize the ATV USB port. But can one ATV talk to the other ATV if I do that?

    Initial thoughts is that I should just leave the HD connected to my home PC and link both ATVs to it.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    Default

    If you're fine with having to have the PC running when you want to watch and the current performance then I would leave it as it is

    theoretically you could attach the drive to one ATV and export it via NFS or AFP to the other - but I dont know if the ATV got enough CPU to stream and watch a movie at the same time

    you could also get a small NAS server and put the drive there
