Apple TV with Boxee and more update

atvusb-creator

In November, we covered installing Boxee on AppleTV using atv-usb-creator. [Danny] has written a tutorial on installing Boxee, XBMC, NitoTV, SSH access, and external USB hard drive support. His method installs most of the software via the USB patch stick, then uses the SSH support to enable the external drive and install NitoTV. The tutorial lists a Mac running OSX 10.4 or newer as a prerequisite but there is now a Windows version of atv-usb-creator. According to their Google Code page Linux support for this package is on the way.

    I thought the *exact* same thing when I saw this. Stupid internet.

    I don’t think that bit about NitoTV is right. NitoTV requires files from OS X 10.4 in order to enable USB. The process isn’t much different, you just have to have some files in place.
