    My movie library was stored on an external drive that crapped out.

    I have seen software to do the same with iPods

  3. Maybe an AppleTV with HDMI input as well as the current HDMI output? Only way we can get our current programming before its all incorporated with the content providers. Definitely full iOS apps
