No, the ATV does not act as a bridge. It will stream
your iTunes though.
The above reply is slightly misleading.
Although you can use the Apple TV to stream music from your computer, you must use the Apple TV to control the music selection and therefore you will need to have the TV on.
It does not work like AirTunes / Airport Express where you select the music in iTunes and send it to the Airport Express. You cannot control the music being played on an Apple TV from within iTunes as you can with the Airport Express. I only wish you could.
Apple needs to rethink and consolidate the hardware line up.
Why doesn't the Apple HiFi speakers have wireless builtin?
Why doesn't the AppleTV act as a bridge?
Why doesn't the Apple Extreme n connect to the stereo?
Is it just so we have to buy more Airtunes Express's? And then add them to our network via WDS. And WDS slows down the wireless speed. And we keep adding them and keepig getting a hit on our speed.
Come on Apple
