Got an itch to run Apple TV Take 2 on your Mac?Â The guys at MacGeek have just released ATV4Mac 1.3 that allows you to run Apple TV Take 2 on your Mac.Â It is basically a Front Row replacement with Apple TV frameworks.
A few caveats though.Â ATV4Mac only works with Mac OS X 10.4.8 – 11 at the moment.Â Also, the resolution is fixed to 1280 x 800.Â 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.Â It’s almost like running the real thing.
iClarified has an easy-to-follow tutorial on how to update your Apple TV Take 2 to play movie files in Divx, Xvid and WMV formats.
So for those who have been holding off on upgrading to Take 2 because you’re afraid to lose the additional codec support, hold off no more. Just follow the simple steps laid out by iClarified and you too can enjoy your Take 2 with Divx, Xvid and WMV support.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.Â So please bear with me for a few more days.
Did somebody not just ask me if Jaman TV was available for Apple TV Take 2?Â Well, I guess, the answer is “yes”.
Jaman just informed me a few days back that the Jaman TV plugin is now available for Apple TV Take 2.Â I played around with it and am happy to report that it works flawlessly on my updated Apple TV.
As far as I know, there are no new features.Â Just the ability to work with the new Apple TV 2.0 software.
The Patchstick zip file is available for download here.Â Â You can refer to the original Jaman TV post (located here) for installation instructions and how to use the player.
