Im using my media pc as a server and im using apple tv in the bedroom. Ive put some of my films on there i use media browser centre manager thing which updates all the covers etc all my films are in mp4.

I don't think so, Apple's walled garden. A way around this would be for you to install XBMC on your AppleTV. This way, you could use my movies on the media pc to create all the fanart, synopsis, actors, etc to show on XBMC. And installing XBMC on the AppleTV doesn't overwrite the Apple software, just adds the XBMC option.

Here's a link for that: Setting up XBMC. Just choose the right link depending if you have have an Apple TV 1 or 2.

Yes, you will. Should be easy enough though.

So does that mean I have to do more than just install the software on the usb stick? As per instructions
