    My math teacher would shoot himself in the head if he saw me writing this equation.
    Anywho... I got an airport extreme (4th gen) and a samsung LED tv with DLNA, which is currently working really great from Serviio client on my MacBook Pro.

    My question is:
    If I buy a external hard drive and connect it to my airport extreme with USB, is it possible to run the files on the hard drive through DLNA on my TV?
    I don't really know how DLNA works, but I know that you need a client on your computer, so do you need a client for the hard drive/router? Or is this already installed?

    You need a DNLA server and there is none for the Airport Extreme, you would need a computer running the DNLA server
