View Silver Screen Media on Your Apple TV from another Disk

Want to watch movies via Silver Screen that aren't in your Movies folder? Just create an alias in your Movies directory and select that as your Media Directory in Silver Screen's preferences. It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.

I don't mind too much when companies try to reduce abusive usage, but what bugs me is that people who are on the other end of the spectrum - very light usage - always overpay, regardless of their light usage.

I barely use any minutes on my iPhone's plan - I have nearly 3500 rollover minutes stored up in a year of owning an iPhone, and yet I don't see AT&T offering me any "incentives" for being so nice as to not overload their network.

Same thing is aggravating with bandwidth caps. I actually don't mind that Comcast has a 250 GB monthly cap, but I think they should also roll over some percentage (maybe half) of my unused GB each month for 6 to 12 months as a courtesy.

I see the problem. It's an AP story that was linked at the New York Times, which expires AP links. Since this is just a link and an old story, we will leave it standing.
