    I just sold my Apple TV 2, but am missing the ability to stream music and photos downstairs to the TV set.

    Running wire between the units is not much of a problem in my house. But what type, connectors, and where to hook it up to? Also, are there any distance restrictions? It will be about 20' (6m) in my case.

    Please advice. Thanks.

    Does your TV support an Ethernet connection? What kind of computer do you have - a Mini has an HDMI connection, but other models will require a converter.

    If you just sold your ATV2 what are you connecting to the TV set?

    I have LAN Ethernet connections on IMac, Time Capsule and TV. But blueroom has a good point. What am i going to use as a controller?

    On the internet!
    If you have everything in your iTunes library you could always use the apple remote app :)
