Boy, I hope someone out there can clarify this for me. I've posted on the Apple and QNAP forums, and still don't understand the answer. Here goes: I have my iTunes media library on the internal hard disk of my MacBook Pro. I have about 100 movies in iTunes. I want to move the library to a NAS, specifically to a QNAP TS-419p+ device. Once migrated to the QNAP, I would want to stream movies to my TV as follows: 1. Turn on my MacBook Pro and start iTunes 2. Turn on my TV (I have an ATV2 connected to the TV) and use the Apple Remote to select a movie from the on-screen menu 3. Watch the movie! I know that the QNAP (or I believe any NAS device) cannot stream the movies directly from the QNAP to the TV. The QNAP software cannot handle Apple DRM and cannot simulate iTunes and Airplay. But in the manner I describe above, I am using iTunes on my MacBook Pro to stream the movie via ATV2 to my TV - I'm just using the QNAP NAS as a "dumb" external hard drive. The people who responded to my thread on the Apple forum think this will work. The people who responded to my thread on the QNAP forum (QNAP technical support guys) say it will not work. They said that "QNAP Turbo NAS doesn't support the video streaming based on iTunes Service. Turbo NAS doesn't support the Apple TV, as the extra iTunes login authorization mechanism needed by Apple TV. In addition, the Apple TV doesn't support SAMBA service." I guess the guys at QNAP ought to know whether it will work, and they say it won't. But I don't understand why it won't. And if it won't work on a QNAP NAS, would it work on some other brand of NAS? If so, why? Thank you!
