While aTV Flash claims it’s not possible for you to enable AFP, I was able to do it on my 2.0 ATV using this guide:
AppleTV 2.0 - Now working
Unlike the previous poster, I found I was able to get this working. Here is what I did (in simple steps, assuming everyone is a noob):
- From my Macbook running Leopard I copied “/System/Library/CoreServices/AppleFileServer.app” using Cyberduck to /Users/frontrow
- From terminal,
sudo mv ~/AppleFileServer.app /System/Library/CoreServices/
- Then to run it,
- From my MacBook, I connect to it by selecting Finder, Ctrl+K, and then “afp://AppleTV.local/frontrow”, where “AppleTV” is the name of my ATV.
- Username and password are, as always, “frontrow”
Update - I find this service is still running after reboots and so there is no need to restart it.

That will get the server going. From there you have to configure the ATV under the networks menu to have it link to your computer’s shared folders. That CAN be found on this site, in the knowledgebase post. I don’t have time to find it, but if you can’t find it or are still having trouble, reply or pm me.
