    Default Complete Noob, just bought an AppleTV, please help

    Hi

    I got an AppleTV for Xmas, been using it, but I cant play my DivX files over my network (I knew it couldnt before buying btw), having to re-convert them to MP4 (using Handbrake) but its taking ages.

    I then read about the various hacks, ATVFlash, Patchstick.ca, and freee usb creator.

    I really want to keep the interface as is, as its used by my wife and kids. All I really want to be able to do extra is have a menu item to be able to see the DivX files wirelessly over my network to play.

    I dont mind paying but they seem expensive for what I want to do, and seem to install a lot lot ore than I really want.
    Ive tried to look at the tutorials out there for free, but am confused, theres a free patchstick.ca verson but unsure what this does.

    Can someone please help me find what I want, with tuts/vids etc on how to do it. I basically want a menu item for access to my DivX files over a network

    Also
    as it is so new, my AppleTV, I know that they do not void warranty as you van do a factory restore to go back to shop/stock/factory settings, but can you back it up 1st? if so how, also what happens if a harsdware fault happens, eg no no screen output, and you dont have a chance to do a factory restore before you can send to Apple?

    cheers

    thanks for the help, bought ATV Flash instead.

    trouble is now I seem to have crashes/freezing/lockups. I installed nitoTV only. it plays the files but I am getting these crashes.
