Squeezebox Support on Airport?
Does anyone know if an Airport Time Capsule would offer Squeezebox support? I'm considering moving from an all windows environment to an iMac with an Airport time capsule. Ideally I'd like to be able to access a music library from Squeezebox on an airport even with the iMac off. I realize there is Apple TV and the like, but I've got a good investment already in squeezebox devices and controllers I'd like to continue to use. Has anyone tried this before? Sorry, not very technical here so forgive me but from browsing the logitech site it looks like Squeezebox is incapable of connecting to N networks and we would need to change modem settings to B or G. I assume that is done at the wireless router and isn't any worse that what I have now? Any downsides here? Thanks everyone!

Does the AirPort Time Capsule provide a FTP server capability via a IPv4 registered public address?
My present Cisco/Belkin wireless router provides a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server using a IPv4 registered public address so I can access my stored files over the Internet. I find this service indispensable as I'm a network engineer and having my tools available without using disk space on my MBP makes more sense than a USB thumb drive

Yes. In AirPort Utility go to the Internet tab and click on the dropdown menu that has DHCP selected. Select PPPoE and fill out the form with your ISP's supplied information.

Can I use this to transfer a macbook hard drive to a brand new Macbook Pro?
So, I have this old macbook and would buy this time capsule if I can use it to transfer everything from my old computer to a brand new one that I just ordered. Does this work? Will I be able to keep all my programs such as Word, Powerpoint, even my games without having to RE-BUY them?

Yes, do a normal Time Machine back to the Time Capsule and use the documented procedure to restore on your new device. Using a new Time Capsule, transfer rate are awesome, took 3 hours on my wife's MacBook Pro.

Can I connect more than one external hard drives to my Airport Time Capsule and access the external hard drive from 2 computers simultaneously?
I have just bought a 2TB Airport Time Capsule. I connected a USB hub to it and 2 external hard drives (Lacie). Is is possible to have more than one computer using the same external hard drive at the same time? It seems to only appear in one computer, not the other one.

Speed concern when connecting Airport Time Capsule to a wireless N router
I have a 2wire 5012NV (wireless N) as main router. I would like to wirelessly bridge a 2TB Airport Time Capsule (wireless AC) to it.
Can I get AC speed when running time machine backup for my rMBP (wireless AC)?
How about attaching a NAS to the Time Capsule via Ethernet? What speed can I get if I want to access the NAS wirelessly? Does the transmission pass through the wirelss N main router?

Neither of these services allows recording of their streaming content. The only way to capture that is using a screen-capture software which will give you very low resolution and possibly be a very unsatisfying experience overall.

Time Machine supports backup to more than one Time Capsule. So if the disk on one Time Capsule fails you still have the backup on another Time Capsule.
If you have access to two different physical locations and put one Time Capsule in each, in case of fire in one location that destroys both the Time Capsule there and a macbook being backuped, you still have the Time Capsule backup in the second location, even if that backup may not be up to date.

We are a family of 6 all with apple devices. Is the time capsule multi user capable? Specifically around the backup and sharing areas?Answer
Not sure about 6, but multi-user yes. When setting up Time Machine, it will present you all and any available drives on your network. Simply use it for each as long as the name of the computer is not the same.

I am running Windows 8 which is similar to 7. I have my laptop doing an auto backup to the TC drive.
Go to Control panel - System and Security - and follow the prompts. ( select drive in TC etc.)
I mapped the TC data drive so Windows could connect at log on. Not sure if I needed to do that as well
