ATV 1Gen + 1gb USB Drive
I've used firecore usb to patch my ATV + changed the storage device from being internal to an 1GB sata usb powered drive (2.5"), I seem to be having a problem where when I'm trying to transfer all my movies / pictures etc over to the ATV, after about 2 hours the sync just stops. If I reboot the ATV all seems fine again until a given time .
I've reinstalled several times but it still happens .
is it cos im using a usb powered drive instead of an externally powered drive?
OK Peeps.....done more testing.
I've narrowed it down to file size......I've synced some 60,000 songs / mp3's and this runs flawless. (1mb - 6mb files)
I have on average 400 movies which are 800mb in size, these sync fine, the moment the file is 1.4gb or bigger, then I have problems where the itunes still says syncing but the hard drive light stops flashing on both the source and target (atv) drives. These are usually HD or blu ray rips (Casino Royale for one is some 2gb in size but cracking quality)
How do others use the usb port, do you use it purly for nitro TV or as an external storage like me (for itunes to use)
