I have front row on my imac with a divx plugin in if its not possible to do the same with apple tv I wont be interested in buying this product. I haven't read anything that says its possible yet so will have to wait till after its launch.

If its got a hard drive i'm hoping theres some sort of quicktime folder on the unit to drop files in.

I'm not positive, but I think you get all your data onto your Apple TV by iTunes 7. I'm sure there is a way to get QuickTime movies on there. If not, just put your QuickTime files into iTunes.

This says it is for iTunes 6. Are you sure this would work for iTunes 7?

Only because it was written that long ago, I watched an avi in itunes before posting and its fine. It's not ideal, another file everytime but I could live with it untill a hack comes along.

I think you might be able to stream DivX files to the Apple TV, but I doubt you will be able to play them directly off its hard drive.
