tegalus Wrote: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?

next time this happens, run the rc.local script and see why it fails.

sudo sh /etc/rc.local

Sorry to be dumb but if I install a nightly build on my ATV which I am about to do (I upload it with cyberduck) do I need to run this script again as its already on the ATV now.

i.e. is it changing files in the system or the application.

Cheers

if you install a xbmc nightly build on the atv and have NOT installed the crystal driver before, then you need to run the crystalhd driver installer.

Thanks, sounds good. Two brief questions:

1) Any plans it will get added to launcher?

2) Which version will it download and which version works best. I saw in one of the other threads that the more recent ones are still a bit buggy.

One of the lost posts but you can add both to launcher by
download putty....http://lmgtfy.com/?q=putty

sshe into your appletv
run the following commands




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


defaults write com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlistURLs -array-add http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/osx/update_urls.plist

Update launcher

Load drivers

Load SVN.

Thats what i did a few weeks ago. It should help

Ran the two commands above and then updated the launcher (as I was already up-to-date, it remained at 3.2.4). Unfortunately, nothing got added to the download list to load the drivers. Any thoughts?

See below. The "nightlies link" shows up, but the crystalhd one does not.

-bash-2.05b$ defaults read com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlistURLs
(
"http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/osx/update_urls.plist",
"http://crystalhd.sartori.at/files/crystalhd.plist"
)
-bash-2.05b$
