    I just jailbroke my ATV2 using seas0npass and installed ATV Flash, then installed XBMC and Plex. I have a Synology DS211J NAS and tried adding it as a source for XBMC. It sees the "Video" folder that I have shared, but doesn't show any of the videos that I have in there. Anyone have an idea on what the problem is?

    And I have a general question about Plex. Is it possible to stream directly from the NAS to the ATV2? Or does a computer have to be running Plex Media Server?

    Thanks

    a computer on the network has to be running Plex Media Center/Server to have Plex work on the ATV2
