Transfer files over network to USB drive connect to Apple TV


I’ve got my external USB HD connected to my ATV and working correctly.
I would like to transfer files over FTP from my stationary computer (iMac) located on my intranet over to the external HD connected to my Apple TV.
How to proceed?

Thanks for your advice,


Using an FTP Client. I use CyberDuck, it works great. Your drive should show up in “Movies” folder as an alias once you’ve logged into the ATV.

The address will be


Username: frontrow
Password: frontrow

Good luck!

Thanks man … simple and brilliant !

No problem. That’s the magic of forums!
