    I was wondering if this is possible.
    I read that you can do that with the Airport Extreme base staion but before I go out and buy one of those I thought Id rather check if Apple TV can do the same thing.

    I have ATVFlash installed but couldnt find any further info. Does anyone on here know?

    yeah, you can use a hard drive through the usb on the apple tv with that installed, but you have to ssh into the drive to make changes on it, much easier with airport extreme/time capsule.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yeh, my whole idea was to connect a hardrive to the ATV that I could easily access from all the Macs in the house.

    I think I might just get the Airport Extreme then.
