    Hey All,

    If i have a new Mac, a Mac Laptop too can i buy a time capsule place all my music, documents, videos etc on it and stream it to the two? i.e. i find the drive on my Mac computer double click a video and have it play? or do i need to move the file over? I read somewhere i cant do that but that was under vista, as in cant stream from Time Capsule to vista as its only a network drive?

    any help would b great

    thanks

    Ste

    Time Capsule is meant as a backup solution, I do not believe you can use it to stream music. If you want to do that, you will just want to get a NAS and connect to that from both machines and have the music stored on the NAS.
