What can I do with File Sharing?
File Sharing allows you to stream non-iTunes media stored on your AppleTV (including media stored on external drives) to other devices including a second AppleTV (silver or black) or a Mac/PC computer.
How to use File Sharing
After installing the File Sharing package through the Maintenance --> Install Extras menu, the File Sharing option can be enabled through the Maintenance --> Settings menu.
When File Sharing is enabled (or set to Auto-Start) the relevant connection info will be visible when the File Sharing item is highlighted. The AppleTV's username and password are both 'frontrow' (without quotes).
Great! Where can I get it?
aTV Flash version 4.3 is available through the Downloads tab in your account. If you're already running aTV Flash on your AppleTV you can update through the Maintenance --> Manage Plugins menu.
