Ok, I found that since I was using Network Magic for networking, I never enabled File and Print sharing on XP. So I got that going tonight. I got the ATV accessing files directly from my xp machinenow… Very cool ! Centralized storage!
No problems with music, but after 15 minutes or so of video, it stuttered. I am still wireless so next I’ll run a wire across the rooms to test it, and see if that makes a difference. I should be able to test this tomorrow. More to report then!
After validating this, then I’ll setup and try to access the network attached USB device.
If however the wired streaming doesn’t work well from the XP box to the ATV, then I will likely hook up the USB device directly to the ATV and see I I can transfer directly to it using WinSCP. I believe I saw a post on how to do this today.
I also promised a measurement. Using WinSCP, I wirelessly transferred a 3.9gb file in ~30 minutes from the XP box to the ATV. Are you using WinSCP or FTP?
