Network Streaming


I have been stuggling as I cannot get the Apple TV to connect to my mac by SMB or AFP (which says I need a recovery 1.0 dg I cant get!!)

I reinstalled the flash stick to start from scratch and not whenever I try to open the network in NitoTV or even install something like ATVFiles I get the Play/Pause error that it cannot do what I wanted.

Can anyone help please Im at my wits end


By default the AppleTV will attempt to connect via the AFP protocol, however most newer AppleTV units will not support this protocol. The SMB protocol can be used in its place by setting up a ‘Manual Share Point’. We have a guide for setting this up at the link below.

If you’re having trouble setting up the share point, let us know and we can help walk you through it.

Note: If you think you have an older AppleTV (purchased prior to October 2007) AFP can be enabled here:

My AppleTV is only new and I have tried all the instructions with no luck

I can connect to the make via smb on a windows XP laptop but not on the AppleTV so I know the sharing at the Mac end is ok

I really need to resolve this.
