The intel /usr/bin/passwd binary is not on the AppleTV box by default.

To change the default password from 'frontrow' to something else follow these instructions.

  1. Enable ssh
  2. From an intel mac, copy the passwd binary.
    sudo scp -1 /usr/bin/passwd frontrow@ip.of.apple.tv:/Users/frontrow/Desktop/
  3. From the Apple TV, move the passwd binary to the appropriate folder.
    sudo mv ~/Desktop/passwd /usr/bin/
  4. Type passwd to change your password
