    Default Newbie Media Server Advice

    Hi im looking to set up a media centre to hold all my movies and pics etc.

    I would like to have access to the apple tv interface and for all the content to be pulled from the iTunes and not the finder. I would also like to have access to applications in mac os.

    Is it possible to have a mac mini, with the itunes content stored on an external usb drive, running the the apple tv interface when the mac mini is booted and then to be able to exit to the finder?

    Thanks Jamie

    Default help!

    Ok im still trying to work this out guys from some of the other threads on this forum

    If the Mac mini has leopard installed and all the content on an external drive and you press the menu button the front row interface(which is the same as apple tv in leopard) will come up. However this will pull its content from the finder and not iTunes.

    I have followed this link

    http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=463

    and am trying to work out if this is installed will the modified front row pull its content from itunes rather than the finder?

    I can then quit this backrow to access the finder?
