FYI: My problem went away when I upgraded from 0.2.1 to 0.2.2. Now I can play video/audio off a remote AFP share without any problem. Now my only problems is that I wasted my time and money upgrading the hard drive in the AppleTV :D


I upgraded to 0.2.2 and I still cannot play files off an AFP mount...

Hi. I am having problems getting a harddrive to mount so the appletv can see it. I'm a total newbie with this stuff but so far I have the appletv hacked with the patchstick and installed nitotv and perian and the kext loader. My setup is a macmini with a bare hfs journed usb drive attached that I add .avi files to that are recorded from a eyetv 200 .recorder. I can copy files over with fugu and see them but I want to be able to stream them from the external drive. When I turn on personal file sharing on the mni the the appletv sees my computer under nitotv and sapphire but the file doesn't have anything in it. Is there a easy way to stream .avi files to the appletv from the external? A step by step would be great if anyone has got this to work.

thank you very much.

Hi to all

I'm just having same problem. I followed instructions, made ln -s and I did it, it works!

Now, I'm not able to repeat it. The alias I made was a try of other folder and I wanna change it, but I can't.

This is what I wrote when I did it:

-bash-2.05b$ sudo /usr/sbin/diskutil repairPermissions /
