Hello wise people. I want to buy a set for my TV. However, I'm not sure which one I should I. What I'm looking for is a device to stream all the video files that I have in my iMac (which I keep online 24/7) on my TV. In second place, I'd use the device for streaming services like Netflix and Youtube, but I guess anything can do that today. A third purpose would be listening to podcasts, though I'm not sure if even the ATV allows me to sync them with my other Apple devices (Mac, iPhone and iPad). Now, the first part is the fundamental one for me. I used the Apple TV 2nd gen for a month a few years ago and I really liked it, specially considering that I have four other Apple devices and I'm heavily immersed in the Apple ecosystem. However, I was very disappointed when I discovered that there was no way of accessing the video files on my Mac hard disk and that's why I'm not into the ATV that much, despite the fact that I really like it. Right now I use an app for iPad and iPhone called Air Video HD, which allows me to do exactly what I'd like to do on my TV, i.e., adding all the folders that I want from my Mac to the app and then seeing the files on screen, with external subtitles and all. A final bonus that I'd really love to see is access to my iTunes music library. I know that this can be easily done on the ATV, but I'm not sure about the other competitors. Access to my iPhoto library would be great too, though I'm guessing it would be more complicated. Ideas, suggestions? PS: on a side note, does it matter if I keep my movies on an external drive attached to my Mac via FireWire or in a NAS, no matter which device I decide to buy?
