not true.

Both my iPad and iPhone would see the Apple TV.

And the ATV appears on my iTunes option to stream audio and video
without an account set up.

For the ATV to directly access content of iTunes on the PC or mac,
then yes they both need to be registered under the same "home sharing"

You seem to forget some of the core technologies actually published by
Apple in OpenSource and used by many appliances out there.
Main one being WebKit.

Anyhow, this is pissing against the wind, if there is anything bad to
say about apple you're always first in the queue, and the minute
apple's name is mentioned, you can be sure to find a post of yours
telling on how crap it is, how evil they are and much better things
would have been should you had been in charge.

Typical troll.
