Just installed Boxee on my aTV today, all went well but I cant view any content stored on my aTV. Am I overlooking something really obvious.

Regards, Grant

If it is m4p or protected within iTunes, then we cannot play it. We do need to "auto parse" this media a little better on that platform. We do it automatically on the Mac (~/Movies, ~/Music, ~/Photos) but on Apple TV the folders are setup differently.

Look for this as an update, or you can navigate the folders by adding a local source and see if you can find them. Remember, the Apple TV is like an iPod, in regard to folder and file structure, so it's a bit of a mess in the directory trees.

The AppleTV stores content in the /Media path. Naming is not obvious but it's there.

If you have DRM protected content Boxee will not be able to play it as Boxee uses internal codecs for decode and display.
