Shared libraries and streaming with AppleTV
I haven't tried this yet, but does anyone have a shared iTunes library and their AppleTV set up to Stream (not sync) from iTunes? If so, can you select songs that are in the Shared library?
I bought an Airport Express for the sole purpose of moving my b/g devices to the Express and have it bridged to my Extreme so I can turn my Extreme into N (5GHz) only mode.
I then thought "hey, there's a perk! I can stream the music right to my receiver".. and then this morning realized I can already do this with the AppleTV, but I am unsure as to whether or not it'll stream the shared Library.
The reason I ask this is because I believe you cannot tell the AppleTV to stream from separate sources (with an option to pick between them). It's one or the other as you 'pair' the devices with a 5 digit "PIN".
This document says I can stream up to 5 Libraries:
That's cool. Still doesn't fix my "N" network speed issue. I guess the Express will have to do that still
