An unofficial patch for the AppleTV allows you to use external USB drives

However, the AppleTV trick is not very simple and requires activating the ssh (Secure Shell) protocol of the Apple TV and making use of some Unix commands since the core of the Apple TV must be modified. Thus, the web warns of the vital importance of making a backup copy of all the content of the Apple TV before proceeding with the modifications. On this web page you can find other curious references of AppleTV modifications, such as the one that allows you to install a complete Mac OS X so that it behaves like a conventional Mac.

Apple already has an AppleTV with an expanded capacity up to 160 GB for 379 EUR (the price of the normal model with 40 GB is 289 EUR), but it seems that for users of this website this capacity is far from being sufficient. Web: www.appletvhacks.net
