Hi, I'm trying to gauge how long it should take to stream a movie from a mac pro to the Apple TV. A short film (12 mins long) that I bought on iTunes can stream and play in less than a minute. A full-length feature film that I've ripped takes several minutes (at least 10) before it will play. I'm also going to try a movie purchased from iTunes. The movies are on my mac pro (not yet on the external drive), and I have the pro connected directly to an airport extreme base station. Downstairs I have the smaller airport extreme base set to extend the network. On the main base station, I have the wireless set to 2.4 n only. Should it really take this long to stream files from the mac to the apple tv? is there anything else I could try? Right now this is my biggest hang up with Apple TV. I wanted to move my dvd collection onto a hard drive and be able to transfer movies to an ipod/iphone/apple tv But, if streaming is this slow, then I'm almost better off going the mini route with a 1 TB drive attached to it, or hack the Apple TV. Thanks!
