What is Watchdog

Watchdog reboots the Apple TV it if the GUI isn't running.

Apparently BackRow.framework tells Watchdog that "we are up and running":

strings /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/BackRow.framework/Versions/A/BackRow
(...)
BRSettingsHelper tellWatchdogWeAreUpAndRunning

How to disable Watchdog

This Apple document about Watchdog may shed some light:

http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106588&coll=cp (However, on the Apple TV, there is no /etc/watchdog.conf, other than what this document is saying)

Watchdog is not used in Mac OS X 10.4: look at launchd.
