    I just bought my step-daughter a 2T seagate expansion drive to move all of her movies and music onto. She's currently using a macbook and so I had to partition and format the drive to mac. However, I can't plug it in to the tv to play these movies like I can with my windows formatted drive. Can this be done? do I have to format the tv or something??
    Thanks in advance!!

    No, you use an Apple TV and play them from the Mac.
