Apple TV's WiFi+hard drive and Time Machine??
Hey, I was wondering if I could use the Apple TV as a Time Capsule, in a way, as it has both WiFi and a hard drive in it?
That would be awesome!(2011) Mac mini Core i5-2520M 2.5GHz-3.2GHz (Turbo Boost) | 8GB DDR3 RAM | AMD Radeon HD 6630M | 27" LED Cinema Display | 6TB GRAID | 3TB Time Capsule 4th gen | iPhone 4 | iPad 2 | Apple TV 2nd gen. | Magic Trackpad | I surrender...

If your on about the old gen AppleTV.. then surely you could get the OSX 10.5 install on it, partition your drive and share a secondary partition and connect it via Time Machine?
But remember Time Machine needs at least the size of your HDD to work properly.
But in regards to the new one I would doubt it, with only 8GB worth of storage..
