I have ATV2, router and buffalo link station live and would like to hardwire them all together. Could anyone advise the best way to do this please?

Unless your going to run wired ethernet cables homeplugs are your only option.

You could move the ATV2 and NAS into the same room and connect them to a hub but for access to the rest of the network you would need homeplugs or wireless.

You will have to hack the ATV2 to run XBMC in order to access the NAS without iTunes.

The atv, nas and router are next to each other and the router is wired to the 2 tvs for sky anytime plus. Have hdmi from atv to tvs but would like to hardwire all together if possible

All you have to do is purchase a network switch to expand the number of ethernet ports on the router. Plug the switch into the router via ethernet then plug everything else into the switches ethernet ports.
