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)
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
- Download the Mac version of XBMC 
- Mount the disk image and copy it to your desktop
- Rename it to "XBMC"
- Open the terminal, type
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to make it look like this:
scp -1 /Users/username/Desktop/XBMC.mpkg email@example.com
- When done copying SSH into the AppleTV
ssh -1 firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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 ;
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)
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
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.
