    Dear All,
    I got a mac mini + 1 tv + mac remote control.
    In 2 weeks I move to a new bigger apartment where I will have 3 Tvs.
    The main one in the living room, one in training room, one in sleeping room.

    So I need Mac Mini on all of them + remote control on all.
    So I searched in here and learned I must use Apple TV + Iphone as remote control.

    Can someone please help me to specific what I must do?

    1: Must I get 2x Mac TV ?
    2: How do I setup the main Mac mini to send to those 2 Mac TV?
    3: How do I setup the Iphone to be remote control in all rooms do I need a special program I tried with the build in but could not figure it out.

    If you really want to have all your content available to each TV, yes, you will probably want to go with a Mac Mini hooked up to the one you most frequently use. Then you'd want an :apple:TV on each of the others which you would stream to. With the Remote app, you can set it up to be a remote for multiple devices, but you'll have to switch back and forth between which one your using.

    However, you don't have to use an iPod Touch/iPhone as the remote, each :apple:TV is shipped with an apple remote. If you pair them up with the :apple:TV, you'll be just fine.
