–>i have watched youtube vids and been on forums where there is some conflicting reviews saying you can and cant.

i know you could use sapphire but that doesnt seem to be on beta 6?

thanks

 

 

 

You can only plug an external drive into Apple TV1, not the new Apple TV2. Beta 6 is for the Apple TV2 so the answer would be “no”. The Apple TV2 does not have a USB host controller so you will never be able to attach an external device, only stream from one attached to a computer or NAS.

many thanks for your reply. looks like its a nas setup now
