What do you mean to a "time capsule" share?

Can you explain the situation a little?

If time capsule is exporting a share, you can mount it with mount.cifs into your HDA (see the wiki under mounting via mount.cifs).

Once mounted, you can point AmahiTunes to it. Unfortunately, you can only do that by hacking a bit in the sources of the app (there is a guide for that here in the forums or in the wiki, not sure -- sorry, i have limited bandwidth now - some other user may be able to step up and help with that).

Does the Time Capsule export its files as shares?

I don't see it in the features list and i don't have one.

If it does, then follow the cifs mounting example.

If not, how does it export files?
