First off im a MAC and Windows user, I love macs but going to school for a windows networking degree since alost everyone uses windows. So i know both, but right now i have my xbox 360 streaming my files with wmp10. Altough it doesnt want to play them all, codec error on the xboxes part. So how does the Apple TV auctally work?? Do you have to transfer all your files on ites HHD, or do you just stream them over like the xbox? So after all that would it really be worth it for me? i have about 350GB worth of tv shows/movies. I just love all my apple products but seems to do the same as my xbox/windows... it can rent movies "crappy old ones" but it can. EDIT: also how does it categorizes shows? least in my itunes it shows just a bunch of random movies...can i orgainze the, form show/seasons?
