    Has anybody on here figured a way to get files I put on my TC to be accessed through iTunes to your :apple:TV?

    I wanted to get a TC in the near future and upload all my movies and TV shows on there and backup my computer. If I'm not mistaken there is a way to host whats on the TC to iTunes then to the ATV, if anybody has figured this out can you assist me on how it's done?

    Yes... just point iTunes to the TC drive.

    TC is nothing special. Just a tad slow NAS. At least when it comes to file sharing on the network.
    TC's advantages over 3rd-party NASes are Apple-supported TimeMachine backup media and support of Back to my Mac. That's basically it.
