    I'm planning on buying a MacBook Air, Time Capsule and Apple tv from the US (I live in the UK) and was just wondering a few things.

    What I want to do is:

    Have my iTunes library on the Time Capsule with iTunes on my MacBook Air linking to it. Does this work?

    Also have the Apple tv linking to it. I don't know whether it can be direct to the time capsule, or if it has to be linked to the MacBook Air which is linked to the Time Capsule.

    And last, for all three products if I buy a plug adapter will it blow up in the UK? (this has happened to me before with other products).

    All Apple products are rated for 120/240, so you'll be fine.

    AFAIK, the :apple:TV won't link directly to a Time Capsule, though keeping your library on there and having it link via the MBA should be fine. Keep in mind that it will sync up whatever will fit on the drive, so you can keep a lot of it there for access regardless of whether the MBA or the TC is available. That should help you avoid any problems.
