    Does a computer need to be powered on and running iTunes (background or not) for Apple TV to stream its content?

    Also, If I have my movies on Time Capsule, how can I set up Apple TV to stream them?

    Thank You

    Apple TV is synced with your iTunes library, so in order to stream the files, your iTunes computer must be on...or at least 'wake'able. If you can view those Time Capsule stored movies in iTunes now, you can easily watch them on ATV.:D

    May I caution you that if you TC dies that you lose all of your movies...assuming you don't have another backup. :(
