I looks like I won't be buying an Apple TV just yet anyway - I'd have to buy a new TV too, or a signal adaptor. But its nice to think ahead... I don't currently own a Mac or an Apple TV - my home computer is happy running Linux. Now from reading up on the net, there is Linux software I could run on my Linux machine to make my music available on my home network using DAAP for any computer running iTunes, and possibly even an AppleTV: daapd and Firefly/mt-daapd Serving photos may also be possible - but has not yet been implemented. However, as far as I can tell from google and browsing other forums, things are a bit trickier for serving content to an AppleTV - and for now the only way is to run iTunes. Do any of you guys here have any experience of this stuff?
