Firstly, I know the Apple TV isn't as great without the internet. No Youtube, MobileMe, Netflix and all that. And especially, no renting off movies and TV shows. When I go home, I have full internet access and all these features will be used. But right now at university all I have is an ethernet cable which will only allow a registered computer to get online (software is installed on the computer to make it work). So, my Apple TV is internet-less. That doesn't actually bother me too much. The real seller for me was that I could magically make my movie playing on my iPad jump to the TV, and with no cables. At the moment I grab my laptop, disconnect it from everything, move it across the room, connect it all up to the TV and then watch a film. To do this kind of thing wirelessly is what I really wanted. I'm aware I need to wait for OS 4.2 before I can do this with the iPad. In the meantime, I want to give it a go with my MBP. Remember, I don't have the internet for my Apple TV. Is this a problem considering all I want to do is stream from the macbook? I've turned the ATV on, but when I try to activate Home Sharing, it never finds the network connection I've created with my Mac ("Create Network" from Airport menu at the top). It asks for my Apple ID and password I used for the Home Sharing. I type this perfectly but it says it can't find that ID. Is it looking online for it? Can I not stream at all without being online? Any help is appreciated.
