I just bought an Apple TV 3 and love it. I have a more than capable PC and I need to serve it. What I want to be able to do is transfer video from my MBP to the PC to feed the Apple TV. I don't have the room on the MBP to let it live there. I don't need to sync anything else to the PC so it really doesn't need to serve anything else. I initially tried doing iTunes but for the life of me I can't get my MBP to write to the PC. I made the share setting to allow "everyone" to write but no dice from my MBP for writing. I can do iTunes. I'm open to whatever NAS OS that will work. I just want the darn thing to store a video collection and serve it up. It was built as a very nice HTPC but I went satellite. It has 3TB of data storage plus 60GB's of SSD ran by an G530 than can do any of these tasks 10x over. I just need to get it to work. Any thoughts, guides, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
