    We purchase movies in HD directly to an ATV1, and I do not sync it to my MBP as that is also my work Laptop so I do not have the space for that.

    As the ATV1 has a regular Hard Drive which will naturally fail in a few years, what are my options for backing up the purchased movies? Is it possible to connect an external Hard Drive to the ATV, and if so, how then do I back up to that?

    (Back up of the MBP is not done on time capsule, but on Time machine on a hard drive connected by USB directly to the MBP).

    Thanks in Advance for your advise.
