This mod does not work correctly. It overlays the menu on top of any files (movies) you try to play in the directory. It is not fully thought out. judging by the fact that everyone one of the threads has no reply, you are on your own.

Under files I added a second directory called Music Videos to keep them separate from my movies as follows: defaults write net.ericiii.ATVFiles Places '("/Users/frontrow/Movies", "/Users/frontrow/Music Videos")' The problem is that when I play the music videos, the directory contents continue to be displayed on the screen while the music video's are played. Do you have any ideas? The movies are fine. Thanks, Sean

I have the same issue as the previous poster. I have Files on the left side, and ATVFiles on the right with no subcategories. I've followed all directions, and everything appears to have worked, but no dice. If I select Files>>ATVFiles and hit Enter on apple remote, it restarts the Finder. I tried upgrading to the latest ATVFiles through the built in software upgrade, but that causes Finder to continuously reboot never bringing me back to the menu. Had to ssh in and reinstall the initial version of ATVFiles again. Any help would be appreciated. I'm so close to playing other formats, I can taste it. K-0

didn't work for me for some reason. followed all the steps, but nothing.only thing i see on my ATV is a folder called 'Files' and subfolder 'ATV Files', that's all. No 'Places', 'Movies' or anything else. where i've gone wrong?

I have the same problem as JT. Left from the files menu I get a ATVFiles dir in this dir there are my created categories. I would like to change this and leave the ATV Files dir out. Anyone a suggestion how to?

Does anyone know if it is possible to change the order of items on the LEFT side of the ATV menu?

I would like Files to appear first, then nitoTV, Movies, etc... (for example)

is this even possible??
thanks....

I had a slightly different result following this. I had to go into Files - ATVFiles for the sub menus to be created.
