    I bought a first gen Apple TV because my HDTV doesn't have HDMI and my other TV just died and it has an HDMI port and right now I am moving the Apple TV from room to room depending on where I want to watch. I have a MacBook Pro so it is not always on and able to stream video so that is why i wanted a Apple TV with a hard drive. I was wondering if I could stream videos that I have on my first gen Apple TV to a second gen if I got one because that would be the only way I would get a second gen.

    No. The 1st generation does not have Home Sharing capability, and won't serve up it's content to any other device. It is a client only, no server functionality.
