Connect external drive to router or to mac?
Which is the better/faster/reliable way to serve my iTunes library from an external hard drive.
1. shared usb drive connected to Airport Extreme
2. shared usb drive connected to iMac
Whole network is wireless
Am I right in thinking that 1. will be a longer journey and therefore slower. i.e. router - iMac - router - ATV whereas 2. is just iMac - router -ATV
I have it set up as 2. at the moment and haven't had any problems but would like to share the iTunes library with another mac and 2 Droid phones when the iMac is not running.
