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.

Programs that report system info like Now Profile and TattleTale will also use the new Quadra name." [The enabler is available on <ftp.apple.com> in:

Apple says only that version 1.1 adds support for the Quadra 660AV and doesn't provide any other details, although Ric Ford reported in MacWEEK that it included "other, undocumented fixes as well." -Adam]
