I'll preface this by saying I am completely new to the Mac scene. I have always wanted to get involved deeper than my wide array of iPods and multiple iPads, but have not had the funds to do so. I am about to purchase a new MBP and figure if I am going to drop that kind of money I might as well Apple out completely. I also want to go with a 2TB TC and a couple ATV2. Reading up on the products it seems most people use the TC simply for backup purposes rather than a file server. My question is whether or not it is feasible to use the TC as a file server to house movies to stream to the ATV2. I have roughly 600 movies on DVD I would like to rip and put on the TC to use with the ATV2, but most of what I have read people frown on using the TC as a primary file server. Something else I need to find out is whether or not there are apps I can use with the ATV2 if jailbroken to be able to stream videos straight from the TC. Do I need to have another computer always running in order to be able to stream the videos? If so would it be more cost effective to get a good router and simply throw a 2-3TB HDD in a Mac Mini to leave on all the time and stream the movies straight from that to the ATV2?
