    I am looking at my PS3 becoming the home of all my digital media. Currently all my content is stored on my macbook hard drive and is solely based in iTunes.

    My objective is to have an external hard drive that both my macbook and ps3 can access and I am looking in the direction of the apple time capsule, I believe this will allow my macbook to access media stored on it through itunes?

    Will this set up allow my ps3 access to data stored on the time capsule? over wi-fi or connected via usb?

    I understand I will have to have music, pictures and video folders set up on the time capsule to allow the ps3 to see the data, and I am assuming I would have to change my itunes to point to the time capsule?

    I hope I've made my objective clear and hope someone can advise.

    Thank you in advance :)

    Check out the PS3 Media Server for OSX. You can access your existing iTunes collection on your MacBook by just a launch of a program.

    Works pretty well IMO.
