USB External Drive for iTunes data

My kids have a lot of iTunes videos. They have subscriptions to all of the TV shows and have filled up the large AppleTV.

I just purchased aTV Flash and I am looking to get this done tonight. I am curious (and hoping the answer is yes) … I see I can use the external USB drive for DVD, Media or Files using the plugins. However, can I use the external drive for the files synced from iTunes on my desktop?


Unfortunately you wont be able to utilize an external drive for the Apple TV primary storage. There was a way to do this on the original (1.0) version of the Apple TV, but not in the newer versions.

You can enable USB drives as secondary storage by following this guide.
