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.

We're in Boston for Macworld Expo this week, which means several things. First, although we are receiving email, replies may be delayed. Secondly, since this is the first time we've created and released an issue completely on the PowerBook 100, there may be some glitches, and in particular, we can't double-check URLs contained in this issue. If they don't work, try stripping off the last item in the URL and navigating in manually the last step of the way. Third, for those who would like to stop by, I'll be participating in a conference discussion on the Internet at 4:00 PM on Tuesday (you need a conference pass to attend), and Tonya and I will both be around the Hayden booth at various times. I'm sure some sort of signing will be scheduled, but don't know any details. [ACE]
