appletv 2 question

I currently have 3 appletv's spread out across the house. If I had the appletv2 could I start a movie in itunes and push it to all 3 appletv's at the same time so I could be walking around the house doing chores with the same show on each tv?

i only have one, but i think you'd have to control each Apple TV independently ... in your terms, they "pull" more than iTunes pushes.

I don't know about that. It's an interesting question. Maybe the iTunes as the source isn't the best example (although it could be exactly the same, I dunno). What if you have a film on your ipad and want to push it to an ATV. If you have more than one, I wonder if you need to designate which it goes to. I'm guessing you do, and that it wouldn't go to all three (if you wanted it to).

Another question is can an ATV in one room pull from iTunes while another in another is pulling a completely different movie at the same time?

I don't know about ATV but Plex and XBOX can. I have movies and TV shows on one drive on a media server and we often watch different things from different devices at the same time with no problem.

I have two Apple TV 2s. From what I have seen you can watch the same movie from the same Mac at the same time but I don't think there is any way to synchronize them.
