I have two physical harddrives in my Mac. One is an SSD with the OS and apps. The other is a 1TB HDD for media. Can I setup time machine to backup both drives to time capsule?

Yes, by default Time Machine will backup all internal HDD's whether they are SSD or not. Just make sure your time capsule is big enough.

+1. Time Machine will also backup external drives plugged in to your Mac (except the Time Machine drive, naturally). – jaume Jun 16 '13 at 19:23
