Perhaps a topic of NETWORK 101 would be appropo. I am new here and see network issues sprayed all over the place.
My Unit: Apple TV
Software Version: 3.0.2
ATV Flash Version: 4.1
Network: Gigabit CAT5e
Server: DroboShare (Datarobotics)
I have just installed my Apple TV /ATV Flash config and applied all available updates and most additional apps.
Me thinks it a killer community with killer apps :shock:
My intended use here is to access movies stored on a DrobosShare NAS in ISO format.
The NAS root folder is DROBO
After running the Smart Installer I was able to see my network shares via Nito TV > Files
A subsequent installation of additional apps (Firefox, XBMC, Boxee, etc) has left me without access to these (or any) folders.
After reading the FAQ I have attempted to add mountable shares via Network > Add Manual Sharepoint.
I have set the Mount Name, Mount Type (SMB), IP address, etc…
My question relates to creating a manual sharepoint mount.
“Volume path: This is the name of the folder/drive you wish to mount.
A custom path can be specified later for folders within the folder/drive.
Enter only the folder/drive name itself without any slashes.”
Is this to say I could enter only the shared folder name?
Assume a Windows Server 2003 install.
The data is located at E:\User1\Movies; a shared folder.
Would I simply use Movies as the Volume Path?
What if this server has E:[u]User2[/u]\Movies; E:[u]User3[/u]\Movies, etc?
BTW, my problem of not seeing the shares via NitoTV > Files was resolved by simply re-initializing (re-installing) the Smart Installer.
Now why would this be?
So this leaves me asking:

What is meant in the Demo Video http://www.atvflash.com/screencasts/2010-modules/ATVFlash4-004-netv3-960x540-h264-ED.mov by:
“all the network shares advertised by Bonjourno”? I assume a relation to Bonjour Services?
Any assistance will be appreciated.
Thx fer lissnin’
