Time for another hardware mod for the Apple TV. It looks as though Western Digital's big external 2.5" Passport drives (640 gb, 750 gb, 1 TB) all have USB2 busses on them: http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/archives/oct09/101209.html So, given that the Apple TV already has a USB port, it should be possible to use this drive inside the ATV. Here's what I see as the options: 1. Modify the current ATV USB port so that it points "into" the ATV using the PatchStick method. Then all you'd need is to supply the new drive with a power source. This probably would break updates? 2. Find a 44-pin PATA to USB2 adapter. This would preserve updates. Any thoughts or ideas on where parts might be located?
