    Am seriously considering a new Apple TV, as I'm not hugely fussed about buying or even renting films and programmes. But I always liked the idea of streaming music and photos to the tv, and Apple TV does that pretty well, but not really worth £229 and using the MBP to control it.

    But with the price dropping to £99 and being able to use an iPhone, then suddenly it looks a bit more like it. And who knows, if they have a decent range of HD movies to rent all the better, plus it'll be good for watching trailers on the tv.

    So anyway, back to my question - I get that you can use the iPhone to stream content to the ATV, but does anyone know if you can use the iPhone to stream content from a Mac in the house to the TV?

    This wouldn't be a deal breaker, as we'd have a lot of stuff on the iPhone anyway, but I think being able to use the iPhone to stream stuff from a Mac somewhere else in the house, to the TV would have been the absolute ideal.

    Cheers.
