View Full Version : Accessing data on Apple TV

Aug 2, 2008, 10:40 AM

I just accidentally deleted some photos from my hard drive. The thing is I have all these photos on my Apple TV. Is there any way I can somehow get them from the Apple TV back to my computer?

Thanks in advance.

Pull the drive and connect it to your Mac.

Patch your ATV, you don't need to open it or void your warranty.

Hi Guys,
Please Hellllllllllllllllp a newbie!
I am in the same boat (ish).
My hard drive just failed on my Windows PC which had synced to my brand new ATV (unbelievable timing!!!).
I do have a seperate backup of the Windows PC, however it is a week old and I have a bunch of purchased TV shows that are now on the ATV but nowhere else.
How can I access the data on ATV from a Windows PC (just freshly built with a new hard drive - took ages to get it just right - as it does)?
I would love to grab just those new files if it where at all possible.

Following is the URL:


Or you can buy the patch stick (USB) from the following URL:


I have used another patch stick from AppleTVandmore (first name id Thomas) from Montreal, the patchstick worked but the seller is a big CROOK and he charges big buck to make it work, surely avoid him.

Good Luck.
