    Hello,

    I have no way to try. Does tvOS 13 now when iOS 13 can access SMB shares do the same? Or can apps do that? So can I access files on my Time Machine?

    I can’t imagine why you would even want to do this. What you’re asking doesn’t make sense. What are you trying to do?

    Time Machine is a backup. You should have your files stored somewhere else. Access them there.

    I may not expressed exactly. I never remember how that Apple router with HDD is called. So sorry. It is Time Capsule not Time Machine. I do not use Time Machine. But offload media to Time Capsule as SMB share. That is why I asked. Was using jailbroken Apple TV 2 to access files but jailbroke was not stable.

    The last version your Apple TV 2 supports is 6.2.1. You won’t be able to install 13.

    I am asking about TVOS 13 not Apple TV 2. I know I can not install it there.
    My question was can TVOS 13 access SMB shares? Anyhow.

    you've been able to access SMB shares using the VLC app for quite a while now.

    It's not a limitation of the OS,
    You just need to find an app to access network drives directly. none of the built-in apps will do that. Not even if they're shared using apple's protocol

    You can use an app like Insufe to do that, it is free on the AppStore, It works and it works great, google it.
