I like my Apple TV a lot, but I dislike the need to have iTunes open in my Mac for it to work. I have the 40GB version, so I can't transfer many movies, and besides, my network is quite slow. I want to be able to connect an external drive and watch my movies from there. I've installed Boxee before, and completely hated it. What I would like is something which only hacks the Apple TV to read the external drive for movies. Anyone found a nice solutions for this? Thanks a lot.
