    Hi

    Im wondering if i can connect my speakers to one Apple TV 2, so i can play music wireless? :) If yes, can i convert minijack to optical in someway?

    I can see that Apple TV 2 has one USB port. What can i use this for? :)

    Thanks for the help! :)

    Best way to have wireless music is to purchase an Airport Express. You can find them on eBay if you don't wanna pay full price, but imo well worth the full MSRP.

    Also, the USB port on the ATV2 is a 'mini usb' port for maintenance.

    As far as the audio cable, I suggest you just buy an optical cable, either from Monoprice or Amazon, these cables usually start at $5. I have a generic toslink cable and a Monster optical cable and I can't tell the difference whatsoever.

    Or couldn't you Airplay to your Apple TV? Just hook up your Apple TV to your TV, your speakers to your TV, and airplay away!
