    We have a lot of movies. So many, that it is taking up too much space on our hard drive. So, we are considering buying Western Digital® My Book® Live™ Personal Cloud Storage, 3TB NAS Drive. This way, we can put our library on it, still access via the Apple TV, but not take up all of our computer's hard drive. Anyone else use this drive, or know a good one to recommend?

    A lot of people like the Synology NAS units. I haven't used one.

    Like everyone said synology is probably your best bet. Also keep in mind you cant directly access the NAS through Apple TV, once of your other computer will have to be on with itunes open

    True, you can run an iTunes server on the synology, but it works only for music.
