Hello

I have and ATV1 with 160g, it has XBMC etc on it....I only have about 10g left...it is mainly movies but I like to keep them. Therefore, I would like to be able to add an external hard drive or server. Thing is my wireless is not there as I have a Broadcom card.

I have a loft room 5 m away that I could run a long usb cable to it, though am unsure how a server would work if my ATV1 is hard wired and has no wireless.

What is a good solution?

Cheers

M

File share from a desktop or get a cheap router with a USB port (about $30).

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc
