    This is what I want to do:
    Keep all my media on a 4-bay external connected to my MBP which is connected to network via ethernet.

    Use a Mini connected to my TV in another room to have access to all the movies/music/photos on that hard drive connected to the MBP.
    So when I use Plex (or similar) on the Mini I can see and access the library of media.

    Basically, I want the Mini to share the MBP's external HD. I want the external to be connected to the MBP via eSATA because that is where I do my editing and encoding.

    What's the best way to do this?:confused:
    I am able to run an ethernet cable to that room if that helps...


    Thanks.

    Might be simpler than I thought...

    Share the folders.
    Run ethernet cable to Mini.
    Have Mini mount the folders at start up.
