Downloading movies to ATV2 locally

Post#1 » Fri Jan 06, 2012 12:30 pm

Hi All
New to this site and looking forward to it. Was wondering if someone can help with a problem?
I have ATV2 with icefilms installed. Can watch movies ok but from time to time there is buffer issue. Would prefer to be able to select a movie -- download on to ATV2 in advance and watch later.
Is this possible? If so, can someone give me some instructions on downloading and finding it again for playback.
Thanks

I don't believe ATV2 has a hard drive for you to store things onto. I would suggest downloading it onto your PC or MAC and then streaming it from there onto your ATV2 through XBMC. That's what I do if I don't plan on watching it right away and it works great.

Hm, I would have to answer the same as P-I above. Why don't you buy/make a HTPC with some large hard-drives (or just a NAS) and use a web UI torrent client on your computer, and then have your AppleTV with XBMC connect to it and find movies?
