    Hey there folks, is there a way to stream the content on my ATV to my iPhone, iPod Touch or any other macs that are on the stream connection to my ATV?

    I have our family iMac which is the sync computer with the ATV.

    However I thought it would be cool to be anywhere and just stream movies to my phone in the house. I can't seem to find this feature anywhere.

    Is this the case? I used Remote, checked out the iTunes app on my iPhone but can't seem to get anything happening.

    Let me know if I'm doing something wrong here!

    Thank you.

    Do I have to store the files separately to the ATV library or my iMac?

    +1 for Air Video. Install app on your iPhone/iPod Touch and download Air Video server from their website on your iMac. It will allow you to stream any of your media from your home library on your iMac to your iDevice--works great over home wifi, pretty well over 3G networks.
