I'm trying to connect my new apple TV to my imac wirelessly (directly, without a separate wireless router), but I can't figure out how to set up my imac so the apple TV will detect it.

Any info on how to set up my imac so that it will appear when I search for wireless networks on the apple TV?

iMac (Intel), Mac OS X (10.4.9)

    You'll probably need to configure your iMac to "share an internet connection" under the sharing preference pane. The idea is to set up an airport (wireless) network that the Apple TV can join. Once it joins, it should work.

    Thanks - that worked, and it is syncing with no problem now.
    As a side note, my imac only has a "g" airport card, not an "n" but video streaming seems to be working fine, even with most 720p Quicktime trailers that I downloaded and transferred to my iTunes library (most played with no problem, but some required conversion, possibly a bit rate issue?)
