Hi all,

 

I have an Apple TV 2 and was wondering how I can go about streaming movies using a Western Digital MyBook external drive.

 

I understand the movies need to be iTunes but I am trying to work out a way where I can save space on my iMac's internal hard drive and use up the 1TB on the external Western Digital MyBook drive.

 

Any thoughts, ideas or recommendations would be much appreciated.

See

Your media will be moved and reside on the drive but still be connected with iTunes, which needs to be running in order for the ATV to read via home-sharing.

Ok, so they will continue to be playable. Just from a different location.
