I’d like to but an Apple TV: to be honest, it’s a way of entertaining myself on the proverbial cheap.

 

Understandably — and even after reading the technical requirements — I’d like to reassure myself on a few points.

 

I’ve a TV set that describes itself as 720p, HD ready: and comes with at least one HDMI port.

 

I’m also using a 2007 Mac mini, running Snow Leopard: and iTunes 11·1·4.

 

Am I correct in assuming the TV will work with my set up … ?

 

Will I be able to to use Home Sharing to drag and drop movies I already own to the device to watch them on the device?

 

I’m in the UK, I should add: will movies I’ve bought from the UK iTunes store work on it?

 

More to to point, will movies I already own — not purchased from iTunes, in in the identical format — play on it?

 

Thanks in advance
