Networking, xbmc, plex

Ok so xbmc isnt working for me. It does everything except play movies so… Got rid of that. Installed atv2 flash black, works really well. Plays video right off the atv2 hdd. My quesstion is how to I access my shares now, shared to the atv2 from a server? can i still use samba and if so, does plex on the atv2 have to be configured to access samba? or do I need another server? if so whats the server called? wold be great if xbmc would just work.

nevermind. hardware acceleration
