I'm strongly considering getting an AppleTV to replace my ailing DVD-player. So far I've converted a lot of my DVD library using Handbrake, and (as most of you) live in a Mac-house (a simple one, with Macbook + Airport Express, + iPhones for me and my wife). However, there are two hurdles to overcome: 1. Passing the wife test 2. Passing the "hanging out with the friends" test The wife test should be simple. She has adopted to the Mac quite readily, and is quite tech-savvy (at least, so long as the UI is forgiving!). However, the big issue with all of the above is, what if somebody comes over with a DVD that they proclaim we just have to see? Now if I've replaced my DVD player, I'm in a bind. The only method I know of so far is to use Handbrake to copy the DVD (which as we all know is both illegal and time-consuming!). So what I'm looking for is some confirmation that AppleTV is able to connect to the DVD-drive off my MacBook, and stream the content over wireless. I believe it could (should?) use the same mechanism as the MacBook Air. I look forward to the answer.
