Hello folks. I have sort of a perpetual project going on, that will involve an AppleTV in the future . But I'm still planning my setup. Basically, what I would like to do is to get an AppleTV, and turn it in to a central device for our (me + wife) media-playback. So far sounds pretty simple, right? There are few things that are making me scratch my head though. I currently have a MacBook Pro that acts as the primary computer of the household. I also have a Mac Mini that I'm planning to use as a server. The MBP has two users (me + wife) and we each have our separate user-accounts and iTunes-libraries. And I would like both of those libraries to be available for playback on the AppleTV. Now, I have been thinking about streaming, and considering the amount of content (I'm moving my DVD-collection to iTunes as well), that would be my best choice. But I don't want the AppleTV to be reliant on my MBP for operation. That is, I want AppleTV to work even when the MBP is switched off. And that brings us to the Mac Mini. One solution would be to stream from the Mini. But how could I make that work in such a way that I could still use that content on the MBP as well? I mean, we would have to be able to sync that content to our iPods, and we should be able to add content to the library with the MBP. If the content was streamed to the MBP from the Mini, we could not add to it, nor could we sync it to iPods. Also, we should still have separate libraries in the MBP, so that my music and my wifes music don't get mixed up. That wouldn't be an issue in the AppleTV, since it would be our central mediaplayer that holds all our content. But on the computer we could end up facing issues when I have iTunes open in my used-account, and my wife decides to add content to the same library in her user-account. It wouldn't work. In short: The Mac Mini would have iTunes running that would have a library that would be streamed to the AppleTV. That library would basically be a combination of my library and my wifes library. If I purchased a song from ITMS or ripped a CD, that content should automatically appear on the Mac Mini's library, so it could be played back on the AppleTV. Is there any way to make this setup work? Or is there some kind of alternative approach that I'm missing here? Maybe I could set the AppleTV so that it syncs with my wifes library (that could work since she doesn't have THAT much content), while my content would be streamed from the Mac Mini, and I could then manually make sure that the library on the Mac Mini reflects my library on the MBP (of course, the actual files would reside on the Mac Mini). I could handle that extra hassle, but the Mrs. could not. But in any case, I would really appreciate as simple solution as possible. I don't think I'm not alone with this situation.... How have you guys solved this issue?
