HI, I have a NAS dive on my network which I use to store all my files/music on. Currently, I have ALL my itunes content on the nas drive which is fine for my pc/laptop to access via itunes but, I would like to configure my Apple TV to do the same. Can someone tell me how this is done please.


Apple TV, Other OS

appletv cannot connect directly to a NAS, it can only connect to itunes.

you can configure itunes to use the NAS as its storage location, but the appletv will still only connect to itunes.

you may have not configured itunes correctly.

the appletv is irrelevant in this instance, as it only plays what itunes can serve it.

 

make sure that the content is linked to the NAS correctly in itunes, and make sure you can play it in itunes.

 

once that has been confirmed, then reboot the appletv and try that again.

    HI, thanks. I have already tried through using my home-sharing account on my local pc which the device picks up but, can not read the content of the file.
