Even I would like to know about this as I want to do the same and set-up as the wireless media server and get access from any corner of the room. So if you can elaborate the process of work than it would be really useful to me.

Re: How can I turn my TimeCapsule in to Media Server

Anyone who are looking for the procedure of how you do it yourself then try the following steps down here :-

? Try to connect the Cable modem with the TimeCapsule in the WAN Ethernet port
? If you want to connect the Xbox 1 then connect it to the TimeCapsule ethernet port 1
? If you have the Xbox 2 then you can also connect to the TimeCapsule Ethernet port 2
? Now if you have the Mini Mac then connect the TimeCapsule Ethernet port 3
? For the plasma TV connect to the Minimac with the dvi or hdmi cable

But make sure that your are connected with the hard disk of the timecapsule now after connecting with it go to the system of the macmini and in that go to preferences -> System -> Accounts -> My Account -> Log now you should try dragging your TimeCapsule hard disk to the log items of the desktop. As doing this will load your hard drive automatically and this will happen after booting up.
