[Release] Kinos - Kodi Jarvis for Apple TV gen 1
(2019-04-12, 00:27)Kovatch Wrote: Recently got the old ATV working and it's even better now with Kinos.  The old Broadcom card (very original 1st model) is working well enough.  Hey, more chips must be better than less, right?  I just truly love the old stuff and thinking of that the build quality of the ATV1 is still quite a bit higher than the rest and looks exquisite next to the more modern plastic boxes.  The component outs along with the Toslink are nice as well.

Upon research (somewhat heavy, this was not incredibly easy to find) I somehow managed to stumble upon this and have been pleasantly surprised.  Previously it was running another version though I always longed for a streamlined version and this is it!

I must say it's a bit sad we likely won't see that 14 version to eek out that last bit of performance out of this thing though as it stands it's enough.  I'm very happy to be able to use this and thank you Soli!
Thanks! I have some time this easter so let's see if I can make a 14 version. Kodi (up to v16.1 because of CrystalHD support) does run even better with a newer kernel/OS Smile

I also intend to include Retroarch preconfigured (and emulationstation if you want) and ready to play (save bios/rom files of course). It works mostly fine with 8bit stuff, and 16bit stuff. Sega 32x is a bit sluggish (dunno about SegaCD), but Neo Geo, CPS1/2 (maybe 3? havent tried) works fine. PS1 is no go (really slow with software GFX), N64 is also too slow, and everything newer is of course no go too.
I've tried it with wired Dualshock 4 v1/2 (And I think it will work with the PS4 BT adapter for wireless DS4), wired Xbox 1 S controller.

As long as my ATV1 doesn't die anytime soon, I think you're in for a nice surprise!

What do you think would be the best way to configure options? These are the options I have in mind:
Switch between Kodi and Retroarch frontends, enable/disable Samba, configure wireless, TVHeadend, transmission, Minimserver, ATVclient (in case you use a PS3 BD Remote). 

Should I enable I a self-explanatory config file you can manually edit yourself, through a Samba share (of course if you disable Samba then this won't show up).
Or through a usb stick that is labeled ATVCONFIG (or similar) with a config file that automatically starts a scripts that reads that file and enables/disables services?
