- Initial Release, Basic support for left, right, up, down, menu, play, select and text entry.
2. Install AirMagic from featured list
3. nitoTV-> Settings -> Respring (if it doesn't work after this, try reboot instead)
If you have not changed your hostname http://apple-tv.local from any web browser on any device on the same network as your AppleTV should take you to a web control page.
There are also native iOS, Mac applications and Alpha Windows client available to control AirMagic server, i you don't want to install these applications and cannot get connections to work i recommend Bonjour Browser, there you can search for _airmagic._tcp. to get the host name or IP address for the AppleTV (and to verify the airmagic server is working properly)
Due to the fact AirMagic is just a basic web server, pretty much anything that can send HTTP requests can be a client for AIrMagic. In this current incarnation there are only 3 base commands that do anything for AirMagic at the moment.
accepts any of the following. ie http://apple-tv.local/remoteCommand=left
left right up down menu select selectH (like clicking and holding main remote selection button) play
send a percent encoding escaped string to enter it into any visible text field.
will put the string "search" in any visible text field.
- iOS (IPA, requires manual resigning and manual installation without a jailbreak)
- Mac applications
- Alpha Windows client
If you are jailbroken you an add the nitosoft beta repo: http://nitosoft.com/beta2 to custom sources Cydia and then install com.nito.airmagicclient
