    Can this be done...

    Using an iPhone 4, have an app for streaming (recommendations please?) from a NAS/DLNA device? then airplay it to an Apple TV?

    I'm not sure if any apps exist that allow you to stream from a NAS direct, or does everything have to come from an iTunes running machine?

    cheers

    If it's an Apple TV2 then just Jailbreak it, and install XBMC (www.xbmc.org) which should take care of you.

    don't know how a NAS works, but if they have some sort of web server going on you could browse to the files and play them over safari. This works fine on the iTunes library on my iMac.

    Can it stream direct wirelessly from a NAS? I've heard that FireCore (aTV Flash) are working on integrating it directly into the current menu system (ie computers) to allow you to play any movie from a NAS, rather than having xbmc installed.

    I prefer the vanilla interface and its easier for wife and kids to use that way thats all.

    I have a Apple TV 1 at moment but thinking of getting an aTV 2
