I'm sorry if this has been answered before....

I have a 320GB Seagate USB2 Portable Hard Disk Drive and was wondering if I can store all my music and videos onto it and just hook it up to the Apple TV?

If I am able to do that I'm ordering an Apple TV tonight :cool:

Out of curiosity, what is the usb port there for? there's gotta be a hack for functionality. someone, somewhere, is locked in the basement, with their 8-core Mac Pro, feverishly working on it.

Apple claims it is only for "service and diagnostics."

Apple says the USB port is for diagnostic purposes. But some enterprising young hacker may find more devious uses for it

EDIT: Arg, beaten to the punch!

That's what I couldn't work out, there's a USB port there that does less than my 486. I just thought it may have been functional but I didn't find the right part on the Apple web site.
