currently, i'm streaming my apple tv 2 over a wifi signal sent from my macbook (internet sharing). instead of using my macbook as the wifi source, i'm about to purchase a 3rd gen airport extreme and use that instead. with that being said, if i do get the airport extreme, i'll probably hardwire the atv2 since i have an extra few ports available. i was going to also connect a couple USB external drives to the AE in addition to that. i know there are ways to wirelessly access the hd connected to the AE, but is it the same process to connect to the hard drive when hardwired? and is there a way for my atv2 to connect to the hard drive alone without the macbook as an intermediary? my atv2 is jailbroken btw.. thank you all in advance!
