Hi

Just wanted to know if I this is a bug. I cannot play videos on my local appletv drive when my appletv is offline.

Thanks

When running through boxee I believe you do have to be online to play from it because when you first click on boxee from the apple menu it asked you to sign into boxee to use it.

Of course I haven't tried this myself yet but boxee is a members only program atm so being online seems like the only way. If what you want to play is in .mov format you can play it on the apple tv without using boxee and you don't have to be online for that I believe.

Thanks marcel.

Clark,
I was allowed to login with "limited funtionality" when offline, just that the videos on my local disk was not visible. Would be useful to have this feature when I am on the move.
