I am a Mac person. However, I needed a cheap PC tower to run one windows program and Bootcamp wasn't the way to go. So I bought a $288 tower at Wal-Mart.

I decided to also run iTunes on it as it is a cheap server. It works very fast as both my ATV2's and computer are hard wired to the network.

One problem.

What Windows 7 power settings do I use so that I can always access the computer from my ATV?

The only one that works so far is to never let the computer sleep.

Thanks.

I dont think it will work with anything other than a mac and and apple router, although i hope to be proved wrong

i have tried a windows pc and a mac and can only get it to work by leaving the pc/mac on and just turning off screen and hdd.

did you check all the settings in the control panel?

try this.if i read correctly you want to make it as a server.so the apple tv is always connected via PC.
