    It's clunky, but you have to use the Sources menu item to navigate your network to the folder where your videos are.

    ok i managed to stream from my public folder on my mac, so if i move a movie in there i can stream it , question is how do i get my movie folder to stream ? also under sources i have a lot of entries now and since there is no right click with an apple remote , how can i get rid of some of the entries or add them? thanks

    You're reminding me of why I deleted XBMC from my ATV...

    Does anybody know how to delete the source path on the apple tv if you do not have a mouse and are using only the apple remote ?

    I did the same, it is too complex, too many settings....not "Apple-like"

    Yeah I got rid of it too, it really defeated the reason to own the ATV, sure it plays avi's but so does my PS3 and better than XBMC did, they look a whole lot better, plus lets face it, H264 is the Future not xvid and Divx.
