Every time I try and download Nito Installer on to my Mac Desktop I get a 403 forbidden Error and it won't let me download it. It tells me I have to contact a site administer but it my own personal computer on my own home network. Can anyone help me with this problem?

Unfortunately, I cannot help you. However, I am having the same problem. Each time I try to download I get the same 403 forbidden error.

I installed nito and the icon was on my Apple TV. But when I installed the Xbmc the nito installer had the green tick, but xbmc did not appear on the Apple TV. Any suggestions Regards Phil

Hi, I recently installed the new 5.3 software update on my Apple TV 2. I have done the tethered jailbreak and loaded the Nito TV installer onto my PC. However when the Nito installer lauches, my Apple TV does not show?? They are 100% connected to the safe network so does anyone know what the problem may be? Thanks
