Changes

From Apple's changelog (see external link):

Feature Summary
Remote app directional control Control your Apple TV with simple finger gestures via the Remote app. This feature requires Remote 1.3 running on an iPhone or iPod touch with iPhone OS 3.0.
Flickr Search Search Flickr photo tags to find recently updated photos of interest. Save searches to quickly find new photos or use as a screen saver for Apple TV.
New view options View movies By Genre, By Movie, or Unwatched. View TV Shows and Podcasts By Date, By Show, or Unwatched.
Updated transport and chapter modes During video playback, click right or left to fast forward or rewind. Additional clicks increase the speed. Click down to show chapter markers.


From MacRumors comments (see external link):

  • "The update has now enabled the use of the on-screen iPhone keyboard for text input on the ATV!" (didn't this already work?)
  • "You'll need to plug your patchstick back in, reboot, wait for the patchstick to install Launcher, reboot again, then update Launcher and Boxee to the latest releases (Boxee just put out a new release last night too)."

Notes

Confirmed working in 2.4:

  • NitoTV Take 2 0.7.6+
  • Boxee (updated version for 2.4, don't know version number)
    • Boxee Twitter feed - "if you upgraded your Apple TV to 2.4: run patchstick again, update launcher, download latest boxee and you'll be back boxeeing"
    • presumably version 0.9.12.6566?
  • LaunchMore (install using PatchStickBuilder)
  • SoftwareMenus right from atvusb-creator (mac b10) causes Finder to crash, had to ssh and remove frappliance, then downloaded latest version and it is OK now
  • ATVFiles crashes when browsing files (I think Nito explained this on the forum, need new release, I saw ATVFiles had some changes in svn today, hope release is soon)
  • please add your experiences here...
