System 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.


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


ssh to your AppleTV and run the following command:

open /Applications/System\

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 | awk '{print $1}')
