My hopes for this software are that it combines the brilliant media playback of XBMC - which handles even HD beautifully on the ATV2 (but is buggy as hell and hard to use for noobs),
with the ease of set up and GUI simplicity of PLEX (but without having to use a PLEX server).
I finally got it to work last night - but ATVflash totally balks at anything up Standard Definition it also refused to anydeep into the folder structure
on my NAS (By Book Live). Ideally - once the external drive is set up there should be an option to create a shortcut directly to that folder
on the iOS main screen so that noobs/family members can easily find video without getting distracted but more obvious - but incorrect choices, ie the Apple MOVIES section.
Keep at it. Looking forward to the point when I'm glad I spent $20 bucks...
