I am trying to use aTV Flash to allow my apple TV to stream video stored on my Apple Time Capsule, which is connected via Gigabit ethernet. With NitoTV, this would seem to be a perfect solution for me, as I could store loads of uncompressed video on my Time Capsule and have it accessible in real time, and use a large USB hard drive connected to the Time Capsule as a backup device. Sounds nice, but I haven’t been able to make this work yet. Here are my steps, and I’d love your suggestions on how to get this working:
- Downloaded and installed the latest aTV Flash 3.3.4 software on my newer apple TV (bought in the spring of 2008). I used only the standard install and not the advanced, as the advanced apps cause my aTV to reboot constantly.
- Went to the menu DVD > Settings > Network. I see the Time Capsule along with my other two macs as afp shares.
- Tried to connect and login to my Time Capsule and other macs with administrative passwords. The apple TV reboots and is back to the Network screen.
- I go to the DVD > Files menu and do not see anything
- I then follow the instructions on enabling up SMB connections found here: http://wiki.atvflash.com/index.php?title=NitoTV_Smart_Installer
- Downloaded the 10.9 Combo Update installer mentioned in the instructions, installed it to the Documents folder of the apple TV with Cyberduck
- Went to the menu DVD > Settings > Install Software and used the Smart Installer. Once completed I unplugged the Apple TV and plugged it back in to reboot
- I enabled SMB sharing on my Macs from System Preferences
- Went back to DVD > Settings > Network and tried to connect to one of my Macs as a test, however I get the following error: error - 1069 = No servers at that address
- Guest login access has the same info
Here is where I’m stuck. Any suggestions here?
