    Default Usb as primary?

    Iīd also like to know if itīs possible to use an external hdd as primary. Either with OSX or preferably with OSx on the ATV and the external with all the media files.

    I have an ATV 2.1 right now, havenīt run the update yet.
    Iīm not a very experienced user and have used the ATV flash to enable SSH and install all my software.

    What should I do to obtain a ATV with an external USB HDD working as primary?

    Default

    I have enabled ssh on my 2.2 appletv, installed nitotv, copied the update to the documents folder, installed the usb and smart installers from nito, formatted my external hdd to hfs+, restarted, plugged hdd in as movie shows and when I scp I can see the drive under volumes. I copied the commands to move the media folder to the usb and create a link where the media folder used to be, mhich all worked. I now have a media.org folder and a link to my USB drive in mnt. However, when I restart, I just get stuck at the apple logo. My light is white on the front of the atv and I can hear the menus moving. The annoying thing is that this is my 2nd atv, the first is running 2.02 and this process not only worked, but only took 20 minutes to do, where as this is taking hours and I'm getting nowhere! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
