Pre-requirements

Step 1

Download MouseLocator and extract from the package the System Preferences panel. You have to mount the image, then you have to show the contents of Mouse Locator v1.1 Installer package (ctrl-clic > Show Package Contents) and then copy the file MouseLocator.prefPane from Contents/Resources/Distribution/ to your Desktop.

Step 2

Now copy the file MouseLocator.prefPane to /Library/PreferencePanes on your Apple TV, if you dont have that folder, just create it.

Step 3

Now you can copy MouseLocator.png to /Users/frontrow/Pictures on your Apple TV.

Step 4

Run System Preferences, on your Apple TV and select Mouse Locator: select Turn on and put a check on Always Turn On. Now, you should have a cursor. If you want to disable it you could just turn it off.
