    Default One Box, Multiple TVs?

    Is there an easy way to view Apple TV on multiple TVs? I currently have it connected to the TV in my bedroom. I'd like to also be able to view it on my plasma TV in the living room. I'm thinking I just need a long HDMI cable, run it from the TV to the Apple TV then switch them depending on where I want to view it.

    For the price of the really long HDMI cable you could probably just get a second AppleTV

    I was thinking that. Haven't priced a long one yet but I'd need about 15'.

    $20.00. Not to bad.

    When you said 'long' I had other ideas... and a second AppleTV would be cheaper

    I ended up moving the Apple TV to the living room. I'm content with using it in there and my kids can watch their programs there instead of in my bedroom.

    I move mine between two tv's quite easily. Get another figure eight power cable get another HDMI cable. Leave a set of each cables plugged in and just unplug the box and shift it over to the other tv and plug in again....simple
