I went into the local Apple Store today as I wanted to find out some info on the new Apple TV - I'd quite like to get one rather then connect my PC to my TV via a cable.
Basically I wanted to know:
If I wanted to stream content from my Hard Drive to a Apple TV unit, would that run over the internet connection or would it just use the wireless router?
They didn't really sound like they knew fully about it as they've not even got the new one in the store yet. They said it would use my internet connection which I can't seem to comprehend as I wanted to send content from my PC's Hard drive to the unit via the router. I'd like to get to the bottom of this really as if it is using a internet connection then its not feesable for me as our internet is slow and has a 10GB cap that I always reach. I know it needs a internet connection if you want to rent films/ listen to radio/watch you tube etc but it's confused me.http://store.apple.com/uk/browse/home/shop_ipod/family/apple_tv?mco=MTkzNDUxOTI
