    Can home movies be stored on the newest Apple TV? My work setup of iPod with movie shared to Apple TV 2 to projector isn't awful but, when this is part of a display in an art gallery, it would be nice to not deal with the extra part (the iPod).

    No. the Apple TV, Since the ATV 2, has been streaming only. the storage on the new ATV is meant for Apps only.

    The ATV 4 is actually the newest one... And no you can't. It's a lot more likely to be jailbroken than the ATV 3... But still, there isn't a lot of storage for that kind of thing

    There are a few apps in the app store that can play movies off of NAS.

    Darn it. Okay, we will continue with our current setup. Thanks to all who replied.

    There could be an app in the future that can download from NAS/DLNA server.

    AcePlayer does that on my iPhone.

    I have home movies taken with my iPhone uploaded to iCloud which you can stream to the Apple TV. That is my plan. But there are already a number of Apps for storing them on your network in multiple ways.

    crazy Apple Store person/sales rep told me you CAN load movies to it, that way you can travel to non-WiFi area and still watch.
    I didn't press the issue, i wasn't interested in the ATV4 after playing with it a little.
