I'm soliciting opinions before cracking open my ATV. Please have a look here: http://www.engadgethd.com/2007/03/22/apple-tv-dissected/ That sure looks like a standard IDE male connector at the bottom of the photo. Can anyone confirm? If so, then it might be rather easy to run an IDE cable out of the ATV to a 3.5" PATA drive (current max size of 750 gb) in its own enclosure/power supply. Of course, just because it's there doesn't necessarily mean it's active. I suspect if it is, it will require removal of the 2.5" drive from the ATV (as well as proper construction of the partitions on the 3.5" drive). Any thoughts?
