Well first Im new to the apple forum so some back ground. Im basically a Windows user due to old days, the programs I use and the environment Im in are all windows based. Over the last couple of years my apple hardware collection has grown, to a point my household now has. 2* Ipod touch Ipad Apple TV - Normally use this to play music to my stereo/TV during parties controlled by my Ipad. And have now I got a great present a B&W Air Zeppelin. Currently I have Itunes working on my PC with the library on a BlackArmor® NAS 220, originally I had hoped this an Itune server which I could access directly but in fact learning the hard way it is only a Itune library. What I would like to do is somehow connect my apple hardwares to my HD without my PC running. Points to learn; 1.) Can Ipod touch access an external source library? 2.) Air Zeppelin access my HD library via Ipad/Ipod 3.) Apple TV access my HD with out PC I have been reading a bit about people using an old I-Mini, but not sure how that works, can you access the Imin via the Ipad or do you need a apple keyboard, mouse and monitor? Are they really that good just to leave running day after day? Think that is not a bad start. Thanks in advance for the help.
