    Just wondering what my options are if Im looking to get an AppleTV in another room. Currently I have a Mac mini in my living room with a Firewire drive as my itunes library. If I share that out with an AppleTV, and still watch live tv via the elgato, is the CPU usage going to skyrocket?

    If the above scenario isnt feasible, Im guessing a NAS w/iTunes is the only other option?

    nah, I run my itunes library 24/7 along with Elgato, and allot of the time handbrake is doing its thing as well. I have ran it maxed out for several days in a row with no issues.

    Okay, I'm only checking because I tried the home sharing to my PC with not so good results. The wife was watching live tv and said it was stuttering real bad. Might've been a fluke with timing / reception? I don't know.
