Love the App on the new AppleTV.

Is there a way to show both locked and unlocked folders at the same time? My eight-year-old daughter loves having the ability to watch her movies at the click of a button. But on the same screen, I would love to have a folder that she can't get into for mommy and daddy movies.

I know that you can have different users, but how can I show both of those users at log-in?

You create two users - one for you and one for your daughter. For your account you allow access to all folders (in server settings), for your daughter only hers. Then on Apple TV, once you log out (from the menu on the right), and log back in, you'll be able to chose either yours account (which can access all folders), or your daughters. Your account can have password set, so that she won't be able to access it.

I saw that. I thought that there might be a way to have both users showing at once .... Then being able to input a password for the locked done.

I see. It's not possible to lock individual folders.

Hmmm.
Thanks for the response.
Maybe in a future version.

Still LOVE the app. This app alone justifies the purchase of the AppleTV.
