    Has anyone tried using a time capsule with the new Apple TV 4? I am wondering if you can stream iTunes content without the need For the PC to be on. For instance in the new version is home sharing Auto detecting the time capsule where it is not currently possible with the ATV 3.

    Try the VideoExplorer app. I've not tried streaming from it, but it does detect my TimeCapsule as a source.

    Actually, when I go back inside I'll give it a go and let you know.

    Ok, just tried Video Explorer. No problem accessing and playing a video from my TimeCapsule. Only potential issue is that it downloaded the entire file before it would play it. I only tried a small file, 190MB, no idea what it would be like with bigger files.
