    Is it possible to watch a divx movie stored on a TC from a Core Duo (ie no N-speed-connection) Macbook without first transfering it to the MacBook hard drive or is the wireless speed too slow?

    *Yar* Well that seals the deal about getting an external HD for now instead of a TC.

    Related question: can USB2 handle streaming movies or do I need FW400?

    1.4 - 2.0 GB size Mp4's for me located on a iTunes Lib on Time Capsule works over G Speed but stutters
