    For months now, I've had an array of different components that I'm hoping can come together to create a decent home theatre solution. Now that I have a bit of a break over the holidays, I'd really like to spend some time putting everything together.

    However, I'm not sure what the best setup would be. So, this is what I have:

    - AppleTV 2
    - MacMini (previous gen)
    - Time Capsule
    - 1 TB usb external HDD

    What would be the best way to set this up (willing to jailbreak the ATV), so that I can stream my growing digital movie/TV collection?

    Just hook up your HDD's to your mac mini and stream your iTunes library to your ATV. I have that same setup, just with a Mac Pro instead.
