Serving iTunes content to AppleTVs

  • Posted: 08 January 2014 09:56 AM

    Hi all! I’m using iTunes on my iMac to serve up content to the three AppleTVs in my house and an iPad. It works fine, but the iMac is unfortunately my only computer and I use it for design and photo work and all of that network traffic from having iTunes open all of the time is killing my processor (especially when Creative Suite and Aperture are running). I’m trying to figure out a way to host all of my media elsewhere, ideally something connected directly to my main AppleTV in my living room, or directly to the AirportExtreme which is also in my living room. The popular solution seems to be a Mac Mini with a RAID of external drives connected as a media machine. This seems like an expensive solution. Can you maybe connect a USB RAID to the AirportExtreme, or are there some other ways to handle this? Thanks for any suggestions.
