I’m having a problem creating a second ‘Manual Share Point’ (see here for the ATV Flash instructions I’m following - http://wiki.atvflash.com/index.php?titl … _Streaming ).
I have two Macs and successfully created an SMB ‘Manual Share Point’ for one of them and could play files across the network to my Apple TV. I then created a second ‘Manual Share Point’ for my second Mac in exactly the same way as the first, but my Apple TV was unable to mount the second Mac’s volume. I don’t know much about networks so I’m wondering what the cause might be.
Everything about the second Mac is the same as the first except for two things:
I gave each share a unique name when setting it up.
Each Mac has its unique computer name e.g. Mac1.local and Mac2.local.
Apart from those differences, the User Name, Password, and Volume Path is the same for both shares. I’m wondering if that could help explain the problem with mounting the second share?
To make things more complicated, I have a second Apple TV on the same network on which I hope to set up two similar ‘Manual Share Points’ pointing at the same Volume Paths on both Macs. Does anyone know it that will work?
