Are the photos copied over to the AppleTV the same file sizes as the originals?

    My external HDD had a heart attack, and now Im left with the not so envious task of performing surgery on my AppleTV to try to extract some of the thousands of pictures that were copied over to it.

    Does anyone know if the pictures copied over to the Apple TV the same as the orignals, ie they were all JPEG files and Im not sure what ends up on the AppleTV. Additionally are they copied over in the same directories as the originals? otherwise I have many long nights trying to patch all the things back together. sigh. :confused:

    No. They've been "converted" to a lower resolution and DPI to save disk space on the Apple TV.

    i thought the files were the same. the amount of space my photos take up seem to be identical to their sizes on my hard drive.
