I have an old Popcorn Hour A110 which I have been using for a long time now, but gut the IOS/Apple bug and bought the 2nd generation (black) aTV at release with a view to use as a replacement to the PCH. So far though, I have been unable to find a way of streaming video files from an external storage device connected to my PC (Windows 7) via USB2. The PCH does this fine as it recognises a shortcut created on the PC’s hard drive, but I cannot get the aTV2 to see the shortcut, or more importantly this external USB hard drive.
Anyone got any pointers / suggestions, or is it just not possible to do this? I don’t mind what application I use to view the video through the aTV2 - I just want to see it!
Thanks in advance for any assistance…
