I understand that I can attach an external USB drive to a single aTV so that i can basically create a digital media server for all of my DVDs that I can now rip. That’s awesome, if I have just one setup (which I do now). If, however, I want to expand to more than one aTV can I share these files between aTVs? I thought I read somewhere that it wasn’t possible to do that.
Assuming that what I read is true, is it possible to simply attach the USB drive to my main computer and have all of the aTV’s stream the files from one central source? Or, does the USB drive need to be connected directly to the aTV in order for the various media players (NitoTV, XBMC, etc.) to access the files?
BTW, I DO know that If I convert the DVDs with Handbrake that I could just load them into iTunes and stream them that way, but I’d really rather keep them as full rips (Video_TS) both for quality and for time sake, so I’m trying to figure out how to do it this way.
