    I'd like to know too. I have the same setup, except ATV2. I'd like to stream my movies, just haven't ever gotten it to work and I have all these movies i'd love to be able to watch. What would be even better is if I could get some of my downloaded TV shows to play too

    Both of you will need to have a computer with iTunes running. The exception is if the ATV2 has iOS 4.4 or earlier, then you can jailbreak it and install Plex, XBMC or ATV Flash (black) in order to bypass the need for iTunes.

    Without jailbreaking you need a computer with iTunes running.
