This isn't working for me.

When I click on downloads with this installed it locks up my ATV until I hit menu to go back then it unfreezes 2 minutes later.

I hate to remove the plist to get it working again. Any clues/

Hi,

I'm planning on getting an Apple TV soon, but as I will get a newly manufactured model, chances are it has Revision 3.0.1 on it. So I was doing some reading and testing lately (f.e. downloading the 3.0.1 dmg, building a patchstick with it etc.). So here's the question: Does this work with a Patchstick treaded 3.0.1?

yes. you must install launcher and then everything else is straightforward.

Wow, thanks for the fast response! Sorry to bug you with another question, but I didn't find the answer when searching the forums: Does aTV with XBMC installed and CrystalHD enabled support output over Component (i.e. RGB) as well, or does it work only with HDMI? If it supports Component output, what are the supported output resolutions?

Thanks!

Andy,

Thank you so much for your effort on this! It did greatly simplify my install!

One small item I did notice, and I don't know if it is specific to me, but the correct entries were not added to /etc/rc.local. Once I added/ran them manually, everything worked great! I did already have an existing /etc/rc.local, so is that something to watch out for?

Thanks again!! I really appreciate it!!!!

Just a small bit of information. I too, had an rc.local already. I was using it to fire up my samba binaries. After running your script, those entries were gone. Not a big deal, as I just edited them back in.

Thanks for the script!

Hi thanks for the script. I'm having a problem that after reboot I lose the Crystal HD option.

I can fire it off manually by going into putty and entering:

sudo chmod 755 /sbin/turbo_atv_enabler.bin
sudo /sbin/turbo_atv_enabler.bin
sudo kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/BroadcomCrystalHD.kext.

I've checked and the rc.local exists and has the correct entries

Any ideas?
