    I'm thinking of buying a 2G Apple TV. However, the Internet connection at my house is really slow. I have a REALLY old Windows PC I used (before I got my mac) in the garage. If I booted it up, put my iTunes Library on it, and set it up behind my TV, could I just plug a cable in from the Apple TV Ethernet port to the computer to "stream?"

    Any help is appreciated :D

    Yes you can do this, but you still have to activate Home Sharing on the Apple TV.

    Why not just hook the pc up to the TV?

    Thanks.

    And I would, but the TV computer is really old and isn't compatible with any of the ports on the TV. Also, its a windows computer and I really like the Lowtide Interface.
