Hi everyone, happy holidays! I just picked up an Airport Extreme Base Station yesterday to use in my apartment when I get back to school. I have a few questions about it, because I've been doing more research and it seems as if there are quite a few problems with it. I want to hook up an external hard drive to it to use the airport disk function. From what I hear, the Airport Extreme is quite picky with what drives it works well with. It seems as if it only plays nicely with drives that only have USB 2.0. This is a problem for me, because I have a My Book premium with both USB 2.0 and Firewire. Has anyone else used this combo? Can you comment on read/write speeds? My plan was to store a bunch of 1080p video files on the external drive, and access it wirelessly when I hook my MBP up to my TV. Has anyone been able to stream 1080p video from the airport disk? The total distance between the base station and my MBP will be about 6-8 feet. I doubt there will be problems with the wireless bandwidth, but I question the read speeds of the airport disk. My roommate will also be wanting to access this disk. I read that I can have it formatted in HFS+ (although I should turn of journaling to increase read/write speeds) and a Windows PC will still be able to read (write?) from it. Any ideas? Thanks for your help! Happy New Year!
