Introduction

System Preferences.app from a stock Mac OS X 10.4.9 installation runs as-is on the AppleTV.

It allows setting of many more screen resolutions if you connect to a standard DVI display, among other standard Mac OS X settings.

Installation

Copy the /Applications/System Preferences.app directory from your Mac onto the AppleTV in /Applications/

Run

ssh to your AppleTV and run the following command:

open /Applications/System\ Preferences.app

Kill finder on your Apple TV if it is still showing and the System Preferences is not, using the following command:

kill $(ps ax | grep [F]inder | cut -c 1-5)
