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.

Poll Results: Sport Utility Drives?

Poll Results: Sport Utility Drives? In last week's poll, we asked how many of you have a utility hard drive for Macintosh maintenance and configuration tasks. Of the over 500 people who weighed in, nearly 75 percent said they did have such a hard drive. That's interesting, but not surprising, since the type of person who solves problems is more likely to need a utility drive, and the type of person who reads TidBITS is likely to be a problem solver.
