Hi - I am a new AppleTV owner and understand most of how it works. I would however like to extend the feature set and so bought aTVflash. I installed the entire package successfully and quickly realized that I really do not need all the features and did notice a bit of a response slow down. I would like to install only the extras that would give me what I want and wanted to ask the forum for advice.
I want to be able to use iTunes as normal but also be able to play all of my ripped DVDs without needing to convert them for iTunes. Also, I want to be able to store all of the content on an external USB drive (possibly making the external the primary storage) - and be able to get the files to it.
I do not think I need any of the other features but, to be honest, I don’t quite understand all of them and could not find an easy guide here explaining each installation option. I know there is much info out there and just trying to understand it all was getting frustrating. I would like to get going with using the Apple TV and would like to start simple with my initial config and then possible expand as I understand more about the other features.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
