Hi All, I am having the strangest issue with my new ATV 3. I recently moved into a place and decided to take the plunge and go towards a dedicated Mac solution. Towards this, the place is approximately 900-sq ft, and my mid 2011-iMac 27" with 16GB of RAM, an additional 27" ACD and 2GB Graphics card is the main content host. I then purchased an 2012 AirPort Express to serve as the router (until I can get my 2011 Extreme back from a friend who is using it) and have it located underneath the Apple TV, and about 5 feet from the iMac (with an interior wall separating the two). I have a 4TB drive hosting the majority of the content, but some is hosted locally on the iMac. Also, another oddity is that I do not currently have Internet access as I am waiting for a bit as the provider is moving into the area in a month or so. So, with all of that being said, I am extremely displeased with the performance I am seeing from the AppleTV. I do not have an untoward amount of HD content (most are DVD rips that I have downgraded to around 700MB). When I select the title I wish to play (whether it be movie or TV show) it takes anywhere from 3-5 minutes before it will begin to play, and if it is longer (i.e. a movie) the movie will stop 2-3 times to buffer. This is absolutely ludicrous. Keep in mind I can stream the same content to my iPhone, MBA or iPad with no interruption in service. I feel as though there must be a configuration error, but other than the AirPort complaining about not having Internet access, there does not seem to be anything amiss. What gives?
