I am also having problems viewing my external drive on ATV, can see TC no probs, tried disconnecting TC then re connecting with Ext HDD, no good,
Chevyman14200, you make mention that it “adds a period” little confused what you mean.
Claudef.0642 you connected with a Ip address.
Can i ask you both what exact steps you did so I can try these.
I have set mine up with Server IP address 10.0.1.1 user name guest and PW
Does the external drive have to be formatted to mac or can it be straight out on the box fat 32
Does the drive have directly connected to TC or via a usb hub, can more than i ext drives be connected
can ATV using FC see avi files?
Sorry to ask so many questions.
