Read me First

Just getting this page started, its going to be a bit barren at first, this page will mainly exist to have information that is only relevant to the take 2 version of nitoTV.

Nito TV Take2 is compatible or at least works with AppleTV 2 and 2.01 - as long as you have enabled SSH access etc to allow the install.

For information and help with NitoTV Take 2 read this forum post -

Known Issues

POD and emulators don't work in full take 2. This is a problem with missing AppleScript components. The following are all missing and i THINK they are all necessary to restore scripting fucntionality.


NOTE: These MUST be grabbed from ATV OS 1.x or an Intel Mac running 10.4.x! Leopard files will NOT work.


During playback you can toggle between keymaps for the controller by pressing and holding menu.

The current keymaps are as follows (during playback)

(NOTE: this only applies to mplayer playback)
