Greetings all. First, let me preface my question with a bit of background info. Last night I discovered the "Remote" app in the AppStore. I learned that I can control my iTunes music library with my new iPhone 4s (first time iOS user, loving it so far, btw). I hooked up my laptop via AUX, to my Bose SoundDock. I was able to play my music from my iTunes library onto my SoundDock this way, which was great. Then I thought, that perhaps there was a way I can do the same thing, without having the need for the laptop. Here is where Apple TV comes in. I just called Apple's tech support, but I am not sure the rep knew what he was saying. So, onto my question: Is there a way, that I can hook up Apple TV to surround sound, WITHOUT having my laptop powered on ? I don't want to hook up Apple TV to my TV or anything like that. I just want the Apple TV to go DIRECTLY into my surround sound, so that I can control my iTunes library with my iPhone. Is this possible ? Thanks all !
