Andy I just want to say thank you very much I cannot believe how easy that was!

Am now watching 720p and I have to say its smoother than my mid 2009 mac mini.

And thanks to Davilla for making this possible.

For any others concerned by the programming bit all you do is upload Andys file to the ATV and run one line in terminal bish bosh done!

Now it works but it seems to be something wrong with the driver. Got this answer when checking it.

bash-2.05b# kextstat | grep crystalhd
bash: kextstat: command not found

does doesnt mean, that the driver has a problem. the shell cannot find the command kextstat.

try

Code:
/usr/sbin/kextstat

Sorry Im a Mac/AppleTV newbie so I have a basic question... can I just FTP to the Apple TV using the ATV's IP address and frontrow/frontrow as UN/PW, or is there a special program to upload things to the ATV?

you need to use sftp. ftp daemon is not enabled by default. i assume you have an already patched atv? (used a patchstick?)
