Hi

I have a Buffalo Linkstation Live NAS, it has an auto mode that allow you to wake it up if in sleep mode when a PC/Mac wants access.

I have an Apple TV with ATV Flash installed, so can access my NAS from my Apple TV for my movies etc, but is it possible to wake the NAS from the Apple TV if I need to?

cheers

Doesnt seem to work with the 3.x software. I think it needs to be tweaked due to the menu structure changes but I am a bit new to this platform for hacking so far as I only got the AppleTV yesterday.
