    I am a new convert to mac and want to set up a mac media server - does anyone know if I can stream movies stored on a time capsule through the mac mini to an xbox. I know how and can stream from my mac to xbox - so that part is not problem - however the new capsule has 2 tb and would be perfect for storing movies, etc -

    But the question is can you stream from it - if not directly at least through a connection from the capsule to the mini?


    thanks

    if your asking if the time capsule is fast enough. I would say yes. Its a server grade HDD, quoting from the site so you shouldnt have any problems there.

    Connect it to your mac mini via ethernet and you should be fine.

    Server grade HDDs are no faster than consumer HDDs. They are just more durable.

    The TC does have a fast enough HDD to stream media though. Be aware that there is a limit to the bit rate before it can't keep up.
