I just purchased ATV Flash for the first time. Up till now I’ve streamed all my media from an external HD attached to an Airport Extreme over a wireless network. The drive is mounted on my MacBook Pro, iTunes is turned on and everything works ok.
I figured, and I could be wrong that I would enable the USB Port using ATV Flash and attach the External HD directly to the Apple TV. Then change the media folder location in iTunes to the external HD attached to the Apple TV.
So this is what I’ve done so far; (by the way I’m running Apple TV 2.4, iTunes 9.01 and ATV Flash 3.6.4)
Installed ssh, perian etc
Installed ATV Flash 3.6.4
Used the smart installer to enable the USB Port
Everything works fine and I can either use the drive internally or externally, but I can’t mount the drive on my MacBook Pro the alias in the Movies Folder is greyed out. I can use the alias through ftp software such as cyberduck but not through finder.
So I suppose my question is - “Can I use the external HD connected directly to apple tv as the media location for iTunes i.e. go into iTunes and change the location of the media folder to the external HD?” and “If not what other method could I use other then syncing as this doesn’t make sense as I would need to keep the files both on my computer and the apple tv”
Thanks in advance,
