Can I have two AppleTV on the same network?

4 posts in this topic

I am thinking about buying another ATV for a different room. Please let me know if this is OK and how do we tell them apart? I am going to sync to just one Mac.

It works very well. We have 2 Apple TVs, both syncing to an iMac. You just give them different names and they appear separately in the Devices section of iTunes. No problem at all!

Thank you podgirl for your reply. How do I change the name of the Apple TV? I tried by changing the name as it appear in the iTunes window, but that does not seem to change its hostname, which still is appletv.local

I just double clicked on the names in the Devices list to change them to Apple TV 1 and Apple TV 2. Sorry, but I'm not sure what a host name is--I'm an oboe player, not a computer geek. :)
