Movies directly to AppleTV2

Hi,

Till I found out that there is no way to connect a External Harddrive directly via MicroUSB to ATV2 with aTV Flash (or is it possible?), I’m looking for another way.

I tried to connect my MacBook Pro via Ethernet to ATV2. In the settings of my MacBook I activated file sharing for my harddrive, but I couldn’t connect to it.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance

You are correct in that a hard drive cannot be connected correctly.   The USB hardware in the ATV2 does not support this.

You should have been able to access the movies via the Mac Book Pro if everything was set up correctly.   Having said that, I see from other posts that quite a few peoplke seem to have trouble getting this set up correctly.
