We have an airport extreme, airport express and a Sony PS3. Are we able to use either to stream iTunes/iPhoto to our Sony PS3? If so, where on PS would we find it?

Thanks.

 

also, are we able to use airport with WD MYBook Studio (2TB) as a network storage device? If so, what steps do we have to take...?

    In this case the PS3 is a DLNA player, not an AirPlay device. Two different technologies for streaming. You would need a DLNA server to stream to the PS3 as iTunes itself does not provide this type of service. There are a number of options out there. One example would be TVMOBILI.

    No with the AirPort Express; yes for the AirPort Extreme. Basically you would connect the HDD to the USB port of the Extreme, and then, use the AirPort Utility to configure it to be shared out on the network.

     

    Using AirPort Utility v6.x: AirPort Utility > Select the Extreme > Edit > Disks tab > Enable file sharing

    Thank you! This answered our questions.

    So, something like the WD personal cloud storage that streams to DLNA devices, like the PS3, would work? That is great news!

    Thanks, again.

    I was thinking of getting WD MyBook Live personal cloud and wonder if I could use the WD MyBook Studio to do everything? Does the personal cloud have some type of software that is important (perhaps for iTunes) for streaming, protection or backup?

    Thanks,

    Don

     

    Is there a way I could use a personal cloud to keep things secure, private AND use as a network storage device?
