I was a potential buyer, but by what you guys say it will not function for the need i want it too.. argh
I have over 800gb of downloaded music, movies and tv shows from itunes(that is what around $4000) and i want to be able to turn on my tv and there it all is to watch.. But no i have to have my Macbook pro 2011 (which doesnt have enough storage) and my external harddrive running to wireless stream movies to my iphone through wire to the Tv...
Apple please allow a connected time machine configured HDD to be plugged in...

ATV2 is a media player for the Apple media store and for a connected iTunes server.
If you think it will do something else then you will be disappointed.
For me, that is just fine because I don't mind the 20 foot network cable to the router I already had and I stream content from my always-on iMac in the other room. I would rent movies online but my Internet connection is just too slow so I download them at work onto my Macbook and use Airplay.
The only thing Apple can be accused of is spending too much time on the pretty pictures and glossy promises and not enough on the limitations.
But when did they ever do otherwise?

Just an update.
I bought a Playstation 3 and it really is the dream media server. It plays just about everything including DVDs and BluRay and of course whatever you stick into the USB port, including Flash Drives and HDDs.
It also picks up all the Macs and their media over our WiFi, without my telling it to.
Bit late for my brother to get his money back though.
