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.

Submit Your Holiday 2004 Gift Ideas -- It's time once again to prop up the economy with holiday shopping, and what better sector to support than the Macintosh industry? As always, we're collecting the best holiday gift ideas from readers for our traditional holiday gift issue, scheduled for the second week in December. So tell us what gifts you're planning to give your closest friends and family, or what gifts you're hoping to receive yourself. We're collecting ideas in TidBITS Talk, so please send your suggestions to <tidbits-talk@tidbits.com> or submit them directly in the Web archive (no HTML tags, please!) where we've already started threads for specific categories. Please suggest only one product or idea per message, give the reason why you're recommending it, make sure to include a URL or other necessary contact information, and please recommend only others' products. Ideally, suggest things that haven't appeared in past years; I've linked to the last three gift issues so you can scan them before making suggestions. Thanks in advance! [ACE]
