    Default [Windows] Do I have to run iTunes to stream?

    I'm thinking of getting an AppleTV unit. My setup at home uses a Windows Home Server machine to store all my media files, currently I play them on an XP machine over the network. If I want to watch stuff on my HDTV I have to cart my Macbook through to the room and hook it up with various adapters, then play the media over the network via an alias and Front Row.

    If I get AppleTV, will I have to install iTunes on the server machine and import everything in order to be able to watch it on AppleTV? I don't want to have to do this because it's just another thing wasting resources and another thing to potentially go wrong.
