AwkwardTV Wiki

As you probably know, AppleTV is a set-top box manufactured by Apple. Out of the box, it is enabled to stream digital content from any computer running iTunes. As there is little information provided about what is going on "under the hood" of the AppleTV, this is a place to collect and share information.

This website is dedicated to finding additional uses for the Apple TV by (legitimately) expanding its capabilities.

Especially, users have wanted to:

  • Stream/sync additional formats (codecs)
  • Increase internal storage and connect external storage
  • Control the Apple TV remotely, e.g. by SSH or VNC
  • Explore the possibilities of a Linux-based Media Center
  • Allow the AppleTV to access network storage via Samba (SMB)
  • Access AirPort Disc from Apple TV
  • Control AppleTV with Keybord Arrows (AppleTV runing on Mac Pro without IR)

This wiki is a place for the community to share ideas, discoveries and solutions.
