    I'm thinking of buying a new ATV and giving my kids the old one. I've never been one to sync anything but photos. Will both units be able to stream from the same libray/computer at the same time without stutters/skips over an N network? Or will I need to set them up to sync? Is the streaming network dependant or computer/processor dependant?

    You can stream to two ATVs at the same time from on iTunes library. I recently upgraded from one to two ATVs, then two to four. I deliberately set one streaming and went and started streaming the same movie from another. Worked fine.

    FWIW, in the above experiment, one ATV was connected via ethernet and one via wi-fi.
