    Default Plex & Time Capsule
    Is it possible for my Time Capsule to be used as a server for Plex on my AppleTV 2? I would like to just store all of my media on the Time Capsule instead of my computer. Thanks!

    Yes, you have to run it through your computer though. Make two folders on the time capsule drive: Movies and Tv Shows. Set the plex client on your computer up to scrape those folders. It will do so. Again, this only works if you have your computer open, plex running, and are on the time capsule network. Some people don't like it this way, but it does save your computer storage if that's what you're after.
