The jailbreak seems to have been successful i've done it 3x but when I connect it to my tv it's blank and the light on the ATV just blinks.

Hi, DeAN. Sure. What's happening is OS X is asking for the security certificate now required for developers to include in their software. Seasonpass devs have ignored Apple's request, but you can still load the software-- OS X just wants you to be sure you trust the source. Make sure you are downloading the correct and most recent version of SeasonPass for operating system version. Right-click or control-click on the downloaded file and select "open" from the contextual menu that appears. The dialog window that now opens should warn you that the developer is unknown and ask you if you are sure you would like to open the app. Go ahead and open it if you downloaded it from a reliable source. (For an even more secure approach, verify the checksum of the downloaded file to make sure that it is what you think it is. This is a more advanced technique, but useful to know. You can Google to find out how to use Terminal to easily do this.) Seasonpass will open and you can now run it. -- james
