Revision as of 08:51, 2 December 2008

If anyone else has problems using the remote. Copy ForceFeedback.framework to the aTV and it should work fine. Beta 2 is supposed to remove this problem. Rekoil 22:43, 21 September 2008 (CEST)

Updates

I made a few changes, but I need someone who hasn't installed it to follow the revised instructions to make sure they are accurate.


Installation Instructions for XBM

A short and sweet install guide for XVMC Beta 1 "Atlantis"for AppleTV Take2

Requirements

Actual Instructions

  • Download the Mac version of XBMC [1]
  • Mount the disk image and copy it to your desktop
  • Rename it to "XBMC"
  • Open the terminal, type
scp -1

Now drag and drop the XBMC installer onto the terminal window. Your terminal window should now look something like this:

scp -1 /Users/username/Desktop/XBMC.mpkg

Now append frontrow@your.appletv.ip.address to make it look like this:

scp -1 /Users/username/Desktop/XBMC.mpkg frontrow@192.168.1.ipaddress
  • When done copying SSH into the AppleTV
ssh -1 frontrow@192.168.1.ipaddress
  • Run the installer
installer -pkg /XBMC.mpkg -target /

The output should be something like:

installer: Package name is XBMC for Mac
installer: Installing onto volume mounted at /.
installer: The install failed.

Ignore that last bit about installation failing, a perl post-install script has failed to run because perl is missing

This installs ;

/Applications/XBMC.app

make a sym link from /Applications to ~/Applications so NitoTV app launcher can see it

ln -s /Applications/XBMC.app /Users/frontrow/Applications/XBMC.app

Launch it under NitoTV

setting-> appearance-> resolution and pick the one with (FullScreen)

References/External Links

  • XMBC Download [2]
  • Forum Instructions [3]

Etc

Attempts to get it running as-is on safe updated 1.1 ATV have come up short. Of course, this is to be expected,

Here's the error in CrashReporter.log:

Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libiconv.2.dylib
 Referenced from: /mnt/Scratch/Users/frontrow/Applications/XBMC.app/Contents/Mac OS/XBMC
  Reason: Incompatible library version: XBMC requires version 7.0.0 or later, but libiconv.2.dylib provides version 5.0.0

Performance: I just checked the latest XBMC under 2.2 and it looks quite nice. Though I find the video performance is kinda sluggish. That's why I stick to nitoTV for now. --hphde
