If I purchase a 2TB Time Capsule and an Apple Tv, can I play movies from my Time Capsule that I have saved on there from my Mac Book Pro through Apple TV?

    No. The AppleTV is designed to sync with your iTines library and will only play content that you sync to it's internal hard drive or stream from itunes.

  • In theory it should. I have this set up with a 1st gen 2tb time cap and 1st gen apple tv unit. I can not save movies however I can purchase through iTunes and saved purchased episodes to my time cap. So I would say that you should be able to do what you ar asking about. Hope this helps.
