    Hi
    Just wondering if any one can help with this...

    Just connected an external hard drive after first formatted it etc. However although I have shown it as main drive the :apple:TV cannot see film files downloaded. Should I have formatted with something other than MAC OS Extended Journaled.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Hard Drive..

    The :apple:tv has beed hacked with ATV Flash.
    I have a 1.5TB external hard drive set as the primary drive. However when I download various films onto drive it cannot see or play them. I have tried using same drive set as external drive and films are seen and played correctly, but I would like to be able to store films and music onto the 1.5TB external with it being set as the primary therefore make my :apple:tv having the bigger storage capability.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Hm, i cannot help you here. atvflash does some strange things with their "plugin" and probably it is not tested properly.
    It is usually a very simple process, but they manage to put a microsoft touch on their product...
