No Really, Apple TV Doesn’t Suck

Last night we purchase an Apple TV (as well as a Mac Mini, 20″ Cinema Display Monitor, wired keyboard, and wireless mouse). Today I had the unfortunate happenstance of making this little gem of a unit find, and talk to iTunes running on my Mac Pro. I’ll save you the gory details buy my switch is a Linksys SRW224G4P and in the end, I had to disable IGMP Snooping. Otherwise the multicast traffic wasn’t flowing around correctly. This fix came as “well, let’s just see if we turn the helper off”. Well sure as shit, it worked. Yippee for me!
