Copy it to /home/atv then in an SSH session type sudo mv /home/atv/skin /home/root/xbmc/......

Okay, as long as it isn't formatted in NTFS, it's not a big deal to mount it. usually something along the lines of mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /atv/movies should do the trick. Again, that's assuming that your USB drive is seen by the appleTV at /dev/sda1...

Quick question. I run Sam's image off a usb hard drive and all is well.
It does not automount the AppleTV's internal drive of course.
After much googling, it seems that if I want to mount the internal drive I have to alter the fstab located in etc.
Being total Linux novice, I looked at the fstab on one of Sam's earlier images that did mount the internal drive and found a line that looks like it would work. I do not want to mess up, my reliable usb bootdrive, so I just want to make sure this is right. I think I add the following to the fstab using nano:
# Mount the Media partition on the ATV internal PATA disk
/dev/sda4 /media/pata hfsplus force,rw,user,defaults 0 0
Does it matter if it comes before or after what is already there? Is this the right code to add?'
Thanks for any guidance.

You'll have to modify this for sure. The mount point won't be as stated. It will have to be some point in /home/atv/ I suspect.
I did try various combos but I have yet to get it to work. If you do please let me know!

I'm running this distribution from a 4gig USB stick and things are looking great!
I'm just not able to use the resume from last stop position option...
Am I missing something?
Thanks for your time.
Non HDMI/Optical sound - simonp - 2011-04-09 05:44
Hey folks, just upgraded my old atv/ubuntu to this release. I'm struggling to get standard RCA analog out sound. Not HDMI or Optical. Was working before the re-image.
Has anyone else run into this issue? I noticed the HDMI settings were covered in the manual but didn't see anything referring to analog.

I'm using the RCA audio connectors without any problem, did you select the correct analog output in the audio settings screen?

No time to play right now, but post #4 should be the gouge.
