    Dear macrumors friends!
    I am happy to be here with you . This forum seems to be really cool and hope that we can help each other as much as we can.

    I have the folowing problem :

    Me and my partner bought an Apple TV and we are quite satisfied with it.There is a problem though.We live in switzerland ,he has the swiss itunes store and he wants to synchronise his music and photos using the apple tv.At the same time I have lots of photos too and 15 GB of music from a different itunes store (non swiss one) We realised that only ONE account can be fully synchronised using the apple tv and the second account can only transfer the list of songs but the second mac has to be PLUGGED IN . We both have macbookpros and we would simply like to listen to the music of each other without plugging the macbookpro in...How can this be achieved? Any ideas?

    1. I registered 1 hour ago and the first answer i get is pretty aggressive.
    2. Even if u posted a thread , well I can say that i searched and didn t find anything.I might be a newbie here but not a newbie in forums whatsoever!
    3. The take 2 update is out and time has passed since the apple tv has been released.So i was WONDERING if there is anything new that could help us listen to two accounts simultaneously without having to log off etc...just put two accounts into the apple tv.

    thank u.

    So, you are saying that you cannot stream from one?

    The easiest way to do it is to use one Macbook as the "sync" source, and use the second Macbook as the "streaming" source.

    There is no simple way to combine your libraries without a third-party server solution.
