I do not have an applet tv for now, but am on the market for a media extender with a nas. I stumble upon the atvflash and it seems this will be perfect!
I just have 2 questions:
do you need itunes on on a pc or a mac to use apple tv ? (or can the computer be off and the music is streaming from within the hdd?)
can i play music, pictures and videos from an external usb hdd attached to the apple tv ?
I read that access to nas is put away for now. That is ok, as long as i can access the atv internal hdd and move stuff around! and as long as i can plug an external hdd and use it as a media storage.
- last question! Do you leave the stick on the apple tv or not ? i can’t figure this one out …
My objective is to have no computer involved when i play something.
PS: my other solution involve the use of a buffalo nas, and a media extender such as the d-link dsm-520. The hacked apple TV could provide the same, with the added safari browser!
