Hello - I’m new here so forgive me my ignorance and please indulge my question here. I was able to install aTV flash no problem but I have yet to figure out why I can’t get nitoTV to mount disc and discover my stored content. I believe it’s to do with the way I have my iMac & external drive set up. Allow me to explain:
I have all my video & music content saved in an external partitioned 2TB drive: 1TB is used for Time Machine backups & the other 1TB is used for Media Storage. The external drive is connected to my iMac via firewire. My iMac connects wirelessly to the AirPort Extreme in the living room where I have my Apple TV - the Apple TV is connected via ethernet cable to the router.
I have tried dozens of times to create a Mount Point in nitoTV to no avail. The connection normally times out with a “mount_smbfs: negotiate phase failed: syserr = Operation timed out” error.
Likewise I have been unable to connect or have my drive recognized in both Boxee “Error 2: share not available” as well as with Sapphire.
The whole point of getting my AppleTV and installing aTV Flash was so I could “easily” stream content wirelessly - this has proven to be more arduous a task than setting up my PS3 (which used to stream well wirelessly until an update last year made it useless). Any assistance from anyone would be VERY much appreciated.
Is it even possible for my AppleTV to recognize an external drive connected to my iMac?
