Apple TV with latest aTV Flash version and lastest Apple TV versions. Updated today.
Linksys SRX 400 Wireless Router connected to Internet DSL Modem.
2GB Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive connect to Router via ethernet - Hard Drive contains hundreds of movies
Apple TV connects wirelessly to router and iTunes on MacBook
MacBook Pro connected wirelessly to Router
I want to connect in order to watch the hundreds of mp4 movies on the Iomega Network Drive but cannot get it to work.
My MacBook Pro and 3 other Windows PCs on my home network can all connect to the Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive wirelessly and watch the movies no problem. I cannot however make a successful connection with the nitoTV Network feature via smb connection and I was following the demo video on aTV Flash website exactly.
Has anyone successfully connected? Do you have a similar setup? Did you have same troubles? What’s the fix if you have found it?
SUCCESSFUL CONNECTION ESTABLISHED. If it is helpful to anyone, this is what I did:
nito Smart Installer run until complete
Unplugged / Re-plugged Apple TV to complete a restart
nitoTV menu then selected “Add Manual Share Point”
selected “Create Manual Share Point”
Entered the following settings:
Mount Name: HomeMediaDrive (this is the name I gave the drive when I set it up)
Mount Type: smb
Mount Address: HomeMediaDrive.local
Requires Authentication: No
Volume Path: Movies (this is the folder on the drive where I have all my movies)
Selected “Save Mount Point”
Back to the nitoTV “Network” menu and selected “Mount”
Then from the nitoTV menu selected “Files” and my “movies” folder was successfully displayed and accessible with all my movies1
I know this is a very old topic, but I need help setting up my HD with nitoTV. I have been trying for three hours now to no use. I attach an image of my router page where the HD is connected via USB. My HD is a normal Western Digital 2TB USB drive connected to the router’s USB port for sharing on a network. The drive is visible on my MAC.
My Apple TV is gen 1, with aTVFlash v4.6.
I tried following the steps in the nitoTV guide but I cannot seem to get it to connect!
Can someone pls post the info I need to write in the nitoTV Annual Share Point page?
