    Hi,
    I've done a search and found either old or incorrect info on this.
    Basically, I want to use an external USB drive for my media storage for the standard AppleTV apps and syncing via iTunes.
    My unit is running 3.0.2 and I've followed http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=876654 - so I can see the USB drive via NitoTV, so, that bit is all working.

    I am assuming that to get the media bit moved that you need to redirect the media partition to a partition on the USB drive via a script and that's the bit that I'm missing.

    Any help would be very much appreciated, as I can't find the relevant info on what I need to do anywhere on the internet - or I'm searching for the wrong thing...
