    Yes, it can. The two computers will show up when you click the green "Computers" button, and you select the one you want to stream from. But if the two computers have different Apple IDs, you have to go to Settings > iTunes Store > Accounts and choose the same Apple ID as the computer has.

    This might seem like a pain, but remember that the Apple TV can operate independently without any computers at all, and needs to know which Apple ID to use for purchases.
