do you know if the airport uses apf, by default?

the reason i ask is because boxee only supports smb.

Yep, that's my setup.

Needs the 20 Oct release of Boxee to work right. Add a network source (it may complain about "Error 2: share not available" along the way but dont worry about this, if you have an valid workgroup setup with an active master browser you will not get this, if you have no idea what I just said don't let that worry you either), just enter a manual ip for your extreme (usually 10.0.1.1) and any user name and password needed (if you are using a disk or station passwork, leave username blank) and then you should be able to browse the attached hard disks.

I have 2 disks attached, and have no problem seeing content on either disk.

can anyone provide a little more information about how to add as a source (for boxee on the apple TV) an external drive that's connected to an airport extreme? I can easily find it on boxee on my macbook pro, but haven't had any luck on the apple tv version. Thanks.
