    I am a Mac person. However, I needed a cheap PC tower to run one windows program and Bootcamp wasn't the way to go. So I bought a $288 tower at Wal-Mart.

    I decided to also run iTunes on it as it is a cheap server. It works very fast as both my ATV2's and computer are hard wired to the network.

    One problem.

    What Windows 7 power settings do I use so that I can always access the computer from my ATV?

    The only one that works so far is to never let the computer sleep.

    I dont think it will work with anything other than a mac and and apple router, although i hope to be proved wrong

    i have tried a windows pc and a mac and can only get it to work by leaving the pc/mac on and just turning off screen and hdd.
