New guy needs some help with install. - KTM-Guy - 2012-04-27 23:30

I have an ATV 2 with 4.4.4 and the JB went fine. I tried to install XBMC and it seemed to work (from a Mac Book Pro). But it doesn't show up on the ATV.

I then tried a upgrade and that seemed to work too, no errors. But still no XBMC.

What should be my next step? Do I need to reset the ATV in Itunes and then start all over again, JB and then XBMC?

Thanks for any help.

Todd

"It seemed to work" or it worked? Wink Does NitoTV (if you installed that) also not show up? Will probably be this: apt-get install beigelist=1.0-1

I tried this and think I did it right. But it still didn't work. Is there something to do when I finish doing the this?

If you can connect to the atv2 and use apt-get, the jailbreak worked properly.

Further, manually specifying beigelist shouldn't be necessary (as i believe it's automatically pulled in when needed). The content displayed on your terminal capture leads me to believe you're not following the series of steps outlined here. Give this procedure a shot.

beigelist is important as the latest version which gets pulled is broken - hence the versionnumber in that manual command...

beigelist has been fixed. you should not need to downgrade it anymore.


RE: New guy needs some help with install. - KTM-Guy - 2012-04-28 15:35

Okay I tried it again. I should have XBMC in the grid menu right?

RE: New guy needs some help with install. - KTM-Guy - 2012-04-28 16:07

I am resetting the ATV in Itunes and starting over. See if that works.


RE: New guy needs some help with install. - KTM-Guy - 2012-04-29 03:37

I have XBMC and nitoTV installed and it is working. Kinda of. I loaded Icefilms and 1channel. Most everything takes so long to buffer some tv shows will play without stopping but most won't. Movies are painful to watch. I would let it buffer for 15 minutes and can watch for 8 minutes before it stops and has to buffer again. And the picture is so bad. Everything in XBMC has a bad picture quality. We where watching a TV show and my wife got a bad headache she had me turn it off.

I did hard wire it (gigabit) and it is still the same.

I'm sure something is not setup right but don't know where to start.

Any ideas?

Are we talking files you have yourself on your local network or just Icefilms/1channel stuff? Because we don't allow discussion for IceFilms/1channel/etc.

I don't have any files on my computer yet. I am new to this Home theater thing. So I have been just using content from Icefilms and 1channel.

What is the best way to get files into my Mac so I can see if that works?

Thanks

I downloaded Big Buck and played it from the HD on the Imac it it worked fine and looked great. I don't know how to point XBMC to stream Big Buck but that should be my next step to see how it looks streaming. I am thinking it might be my modem/internew connection being slow. What kind of download speeds should I need to stream?

Thanks for the help so far.
