Apple TV Cache

#1

In my job am I traveling a lot and I always bring my Apple TV along to see my movies on my Plex pass server at home.

I know Apple does not allow third party developers access to the file system - but what about a cache on the Apple TV to store say 5-10 minutes of the movie and perhaps some programming to calculate optimal resolution?

Hotel wifi aren't exactly stable connections and it's cumbersome to have this kind of lag spikes.

TIA

P.S. I use WestenDigitals "My Passport Wireless Pro" - but it's cumbersome to remember to synchronize this against my "main" server.

Plex uses the native video player on AppleTV so what you get now is all you're going to get regarding playback/caching/etc. So I guess you're going to have to the cumbersome route...
