Got an itch to run Apple TV Take 2 on your Mac?  The guys at MacGeek have just released ATV4Mac 1.3 that allows you to run Apple TV Take 2 on your Mac.  It is basically a Front Row replacement with Apple TV frameworks.

A few caveats though.  ATV4Mac only works with Mac OS X 10.4.8 – 11 at the moment.  Also, the resolution is fixed to 1280 x 800.  Lastly, quitting the application doesn’t return the resolution back to the original settings.

So if you still haven’t upgraded to Leopard or have a Tiger partition, give this application a try.  It’s almost like running the real thing.

OK, the forums are finally up. Feel free to use them. If you feel that you need more forums/categories, please let me know, I’ll try to accommodate. Just write to me at luckk@appletvhacks.net.

As like all forums, please do not post any spams or use any profanity.

It’s a work in progress so please be patient. There are always room for improvements.

Forum will be up by this weekend

It’s been a long time coming. But I promise that the forum will be up by this weekend.

Hopefully, this will give you a more structured way to communicate with each other rather than leaving each other comments.

Also, I’m finishing up a rewrite of the article to enable ssh on the Apple TV (and many more articles to come). With these new rewrites, newbies should have a better understanding of how to hack the Apple TV.

[Update] I am having problems with the database.  So please bear with me for a few more days.

I apologize. 

Video How-to: Share a hard drive

by editor @ AppleTVHacks.net on March 7, 2008

ATVForWindows has yet another how-to video on how to setup a shared drive using NitoTV and ATVFiles.

It’s about 9 minutes long but it sure is worth it.


Update: The previous method didn’t work 100%. Here are two new videos from them. Same topic delivered in two parts.

Where are the updates?

I have been sick this whole week. Hopefully, I will feel well enough tomorrow to update the site.
