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.

No TidBITS Next Week

No TidBITS Next Week -- TidBITS will be taking a bit of a breather next week, so you won't see our next issue until 09-Mar-98. In part, we're taking a break because we're operating with about half our usual staff, but the time should also allow us to catch up on a bunch of administrative and other behind-the-scenes tasks. As always, you'll be able to reach us via email at <editors@tidbits.com>, and we'll be adding the latest news and other items of interest to TidBITS Updates on our Web site. [GD]
