    My ATV shows 650 MB of Other data - what is all of that and how do I clear it? It seems too large to me.

    You can't. Those are the filesystem and their support files. Delete those and your ATV won't work.

    that's funny because I don't have anything in other and mine works fine.

    Well, there you go. I just mounted the Apple TV drive image and the support folders (called "scratch") sum to only 64 mb. Can't be that. Perhaps it's the XML file? My ATV's drive has 332 mb of "other" stuff. But I'm not too worried - I have a 500 gig drive. :D
