    Default Help: just want to watch some DVIX movies (ftp/smb share not really working)

    I have a macbook and a 1st gen ATV. All I want to do is watch some divx movies.

    I've installed ATV fLash (firecore).

    So first, I tried FTPing in to copy my divx movies across. I can't write to any of the directories it seems?:




    Ok, well streaming would be better anyway so I setup a SMB share point through nito tv. Got it to mount (the movies directory on my macbook), then selected the movie. The result was that it was freezing and not watchable at all, even selecting a file from that directory was very slow, the connection just seemed to be very slow.

    I tried switching it to AFP but just got an error.


    It really shouldn't be this hard! can anyone offer assistance please?

    Try running the smart installer inside nito TV (You may need to download some files to it first; I don't remember if it downloads them for you). That adds more functionality to the ATV.
