    Default 2 apple TVs one house

    Can I have more than 1 Apple TV in my house or will it cause issues. I would name them different names within the settings so hopefully it won't confuse people. My wife and I never watch TV so we canceled cable and just use Nextflix for random movies and cartoons for our daughter.

    No problems. Just make sure you lock each remote to ensure that nobody accidentally controls both devices at the same time. You can do this in the settings on the apple tv.

    Indeed you can. I have 4 in my home and a Mac Mini to stream all the grandkids' movies to them. No more peanut butter encrusted DVDs and no fighting over what to watch.
