Multiple Apple TVs One external HD

I have quite a unique situation. Currently I run two apple tvs. I have a external HD that is plugged into one with a LOT of content. I would love if it is possible to share that external with the 2nd Apple TV and be able to stream video to both without extra hardware. If I need extra hardware then I’m willing to look into that… but it seems that the apple tv being that it runs 10.4 should easily be able to share a drive via smb or afp with something else. Please please please please help!


Unfortunately you will not be able to share media between AppleTV units.

If you have an Apple Airport Extreme or Time Capsule, you can connect the external drive to it and stream any stored media to each AppleTV.
