Default Mounting with NitoTV

Here is a guide for adding mount points to the ATV. This allows network sources to mount as local sources for Boxee to read from...

From the ATV Menu, go here:

NitoTV > Network > Add Manual Share Point >

Enter Mount Name: (Enter the name of the share (make it something descriptive as having multiple shares can get hairy)) Click "DONE"
Ex: My_Movies

Enter Network Address: (Enter the IP address of the server you are sharing from) Click "DONE"

Choose Login Type: (Select "Registered User")

Enter User Name: (Enter the user name of the Account you have setup for sharing on the machine that you are sharing from.) Click "DONE"
Ex: AppleTV

Enter Password: (Enter the password for the Account you have setup for sharing on the machine that you are sharing from.) Click "DONE"
Ex: passWord

Enter volume path (case sensitive): (Enter the name of the drive/folder you are sharing from) click "DONE"
Ex: My_Movies

Mount Type: smb (Select smb for Windows and Linux shares (can also be used for Mac shares if you don't have afp enabled on your ATV))

Auto Mount: (Selecting "On" for this option will connect to the drive/folder you are sharing everytime the ATV restarts (Recommended))

Click "Save Mount Point" to save these settings

Once you have these settings entered, go back out to the ATV menu. Then, go to:
NitoTV > Settings > Utilities > "Reboot AppleTV"

Once the ATV reboots, you should be able to see your network shares as Local sources to choose from in Boxee.

Once a mount is created with nitoTV, it saves to the following path and filename:
/Users/frontrow/Library/Application\ Support/nito/mounts.plist

The output of that file (with the examples I used above) looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "$
<plist version="1.0">
