I use Eye TV HD to record TV shows and export to iTunes and then watch via Apple TV. If I use TuneSpan will I be able to access the TV shows via Apple TV? FYI the external drive will be a NAS dirve on a Drobo FS. Thank you.

Thanks for getting in touch.


I don't have an Apple TV myself, but I have heard from users that it does work.


The only issue seems to be that sometimes the artwork does not appear correctly in iTunes or the Apple TV.


I believe the best way to solve/avoid this is to make sure that first your external is mounted and available in the Finder, then launch (or relaunch) iTunes, and then connect the Apple TV.


Also, there could be some more lag when playing videos on the Apple TV whose files are on the NAS. But, that's just the nature of the network.


But, I can say that playing spanned videos on an Apple TV should work just fine.
