You can use scp or rsync to copy files.
If there's call for it I can easily build later revisions of the crystalhd branch and make them available.
I would be interested in a build that I can run directly from a cloned internal hard drive.
After many hours of trying different cloning software I was sucessful in cloning to the hard drive but the hard drive only works via a USB connection. I'm in no way an expert on the ATV or ubunto infact up until the past few days my experence has been limited to hooking up the cables and turn it on so forgive me if I sound like a total noob.
I first tried cloning with acronis true image from the USB stick to the HD and it just got the partitions all wrong. I then used a program called R-drive image and using the raw sector to sector clone was able to get a working image.
I found the responce time a little quicker in menus but launching video and stopping video about the same. As dalvilla noted previously the video launching and video exiting hesitations are being worked on.
I previously mentioned that some videos hung. I have not had the chance to re-test these but will report back mediainfo on these shortly.
My first question would be. Is there software that will allow me to image directly from the .img file so I don't need to bother making a thumb drive image first?

As I am a total noob can you expand on this. I breifly spoke to my son who is the ubunto expert in the house and he said that I can work directly from the OS on the ATV itself so I should not need to scp or rsync. I just need to know what files to copy and where to copy them to. Can you give a little more detail on what files I need to copy and where to put them on the internal drive. My son can do the copy directly from terminal on the ATV? Again I apolgize if I sound noobish.
