I have an 30GB AppleTV (with ATVFlash) on a network with an iMac, a PC and a LaCie 2TB Network drive.
On that LaCie drive I have 25GB of music (sync’d with iTunes) and 250GB of movies (just in a folder (avi and mp4)).
I want to sync AppleTV with iTunes to sync the music library - which is fine.
But what’s the best software on the AppleTV to stream my movies as I obviously don’t have enough space on the AppleTV (and I don’t want to buy another hard drive).
I tried Nito - but it seemed to suspend and crash the appleTV with a ‘out of memory’ message.
I tried XMBC - I would rather keep to the simple AppleTV interface - but it also had major tearing when streaming a film.
Sapphire looks good - but it can’t navigate to the LaCie drive where the movies are stored.
The network is on a gigabit switch.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
