[AppleTV] CrystalHD Driver for XBMC Launcher - andy204 - 2010-02-02 12:33

This is the easiest way to install the CrystalHD driver onto your AppleTV!

To make this easy install available log into your AppleTV
Code:
ssh frontrow@appletv.local

and enter:
Code:
defaults write com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlistURLs -array-add http://crystalhd.sartori.at/files/crystalhd.plist

This will add a new download source to your "Downloads" section in Launcher.

Current revision: r174 (Build Date: 20101027)

If you have Problems with a new build, you can enable the last working release CrystalHD r156 (20100826):

Code:
defaults write com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlistURLs -array-add http://crystalhd.sartori.at/devel/crystalhd.plist

Thanks for the update, andy204!

Once this is tested by a few users, we'll integrate it into Launcher.

Does it push also the firmware in the ATV?


- andy204 - 2010-02-02 20:12

it installs everything you need for working crystalhd environment.

Actually it is

Code:
defaults delete com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlistURLs

The nightlies and crystalhd entries are all removed then. After that you can add again. Thanks Smile

Is there a known build of XBMC that does not have the wierdness of slowing and speeding up video which seems to be relating to ins and outs of the Crystal Driver?

Its nice to have it installed but I can't really use it.

this appears with some hd content, with sd movies i have no problem at all. i have not found any build that is running 100%. i am sure, that the developers are working on that. lets be happy, that we have a working hardware+driver. the rest will come soon!

Hi Andy,

I have tested it and its working like a charm Smile, Thanks!

one comment, since the ATV needs a reboot after the installation, might be a good idea to have the install script do it.

Good job on creating this.

why need a reboot? i havent tested that, but i cant imagine why. i am loading the kext in the install script. so it should run without reboot.

Code:
echo $PW | sudo -S kextload /System/Library/Extensions/BroadcomCrystalHD.kext > /dev/null 2>&1

Ignore my comment.
