    Default Easy way to copy files to ATV with XBMC!

    Hello, first time post woo...

    Ok, so I am pretty new to Mac anything and ssh and all that but I have gotten pretty far, I have some questions for a separate thread but I thought the first thing I should do is contribute.

    This probably will not help with some hacks as I think the home folder is protected (correct me if I am wrong and forgive my inexperience), however I can view inside it... have not tried copying to it yet.

    USE XBMC TO COPY FILES. That's right.

    You can use xbox media centers file manager to copy files on to your ATV from a network share or flash drive. It's a little clunky but its easy to use for people with little know how.

    in the confluence skin (new default), the file manager menu is a little hidden so access it by: go to settings and push to the right and select file manager.

    this gives you a source/destination style view of the hard drive.

    You can then add network sources ie smb//yourpcname/

    You can access the context menu by holding the menu button to perform actions. For a source you can edit it etc, for a folder or file you can move or copy it.

    I have not figured out how to mark files with a press of the remote buttons so you will have to either go file/folder by file/folder or use the select all. there seems to be no mark/unmark option in the context menu... maybe project mayhem 3 skin would be better for this. To deselect all navigate away from the folder and back in.

    **Also if anyone knows a shortcut to the front page in XBMC please let me know as I have not been able to figure it out if it exists

    Hope this helps a few people!

    Yes I have used some of this as well.

    Think there is a shortcut to the front page, hold down menu till you get the conext menu and then select go to root.

    NitoTv has some basic file management options also. Nito can work with AFP as well, for those who have their files on a mac.

    Go to root takes you back to the beginning folder. Not ideal man.

    Bonus of going straight to the home menu is that when you go back into the menu, say you are watching a show then want to show someone a song, then go back to the video section it should take you back to the folder you were in previously without having to click 10 times.

    I have been using XBMC since the early xbox 1 days but I am new to apple products. I must admit this new build makes the limitations of the remote bearable.
