    Hi. No, Airport Express will handle printers only - see here; Apple (United Kingdom) - Wi-Fi - Compare Wi-Fi base stations. And just to confirm, I plugged an external USB HD into one of my AEs and the HD didn't appear on the network :(

    AirPort Extreme allows HD connections over the USB port - you'll need some like the FileBrowser app to access the drive on an iOS device, then you could stream it to your ATV with AirPlay.
