Hi all,

I've just purchased a 2nd gen ATV for a spare room and found that the 'my movies' menu item is not available on the new ATV. Instead, I have to go to 'Computers' then select my mini then I can access all the movie/TV menu items that I used to find under 'My Movies' in my old ATV.

Do I have to access my movies like this on the 2nd gen ATV, or is there a different way thats more similar to the - better way - the 1st gen ATV does it?

Thanks,

GM

I haven't used the 1st gen, but with the 2nd gen this is how you access your stored movie content. Being the 2nd gen has no hard drive. Your choices are "internet" or "computers".

Google Apple TV hack if you want to see some forums where people are doing much, much more with there Apple TV's.
