I haven’t managed to find an answer so i guess the answer is no. But i would like to know if there is any way to stream iso files to the Apple TV? Im using Plex for my tv show collection, but i have a large movie collection of which quite a few of them are iso files and i don’t really want to lose the menu structure of the DVD by converting them. Are there any options for streaming an iso files to the Apple TV?
