Hi, I would like to have multiple Apple TVs without having to strain the resources of my computer. Is it possible to stream content from Apple TV to Apple TV once it is on the harddrive?

Edit: Also, can you put copies of the same content onto different Apple TVs?

I don't think you can stream from 1 AppleTV to another. But, I don't see what would prevent you from having 2 AppleTVs pulling from the same source. However, it might fall into the 5 computer limit for iTunes content. (Non-itunes content wouldn't have a problem)

I guess I will find out more on Thursday when mine finally shows up :P

Apple TV is considered an iPod device, not a computer to Fair Play. So it seems like there is a 5 Apple TV limit per library that doesn't count against your computer limit.
