    Hi guys and gals. I am about to set up a Media Center using apple products.

    I will be buying a mac mini for the main device and a couple external drives for storage of movies and music. That mac mini will be in the living room connected to a 42incher.

    I have 2 apple tv's 3. 1 in my room and 1 in my kids room. The are both connected via ethernet.

    I have a Hackintosh in the computer room, my son has a hackintosh in his room and I have a MBP for my use that no one else touches.

    I would like to use home sharing from itunes, but would hate to have to log in with my main apple id. Is it possible to create a new, Family ID that I can log in on all devices with to enable home sharing and still use my personal id on the macbook pro?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Possible yes. Most mystic should be fine since it doesn't have DRM. TV and movies purchased on a different Apple ID though may either make you enter the appropriate password for the account it was purchased with or actually make you log into the appropriate account.
