I forgot the port number, but it makes no difference. Anyone have problems with this easier setup and an apple tv with v 2.02?

Can't telnet. telnet: connect to address Connection refused telnet: Unable to connect to remote host The address resolves and I can ping PING AppleTV.local ( 56 data bytes 64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=5.111 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=1.212 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=1.197 ms

If you get 'connection refused' the ssh daemon isn't running, so your patchstick didn't work (unless you're using ssh v2 instead of v1. if you can telnet to port 22 on your apple tv that is most likely the case)

When I get to the step to run script.sh, there doesn't seem to be such a script in that directory. Has it been moved elsewhere?

Oh, one last thing. When I try to connect via SSH, I get a "connection refused" error.

Of course I have firmware installed. How about 2.02...

I have firmware installed. I set up the files, run all the scripts, everything loads just fine. Plug in the usb stick, things start happening. I can read all bsd commands, etc. Then, after all of the dashed lines, the resolution on the screen shrinks to unreadable, and the files stop loading. I can make on a "timed out" message at the end of a line that keeps repeating. That's about all I have. Anyone else having this problem?

Never mind - I entered 'frontrow' as the Response and everything's good. I'm in. Now to install other things...

Ah, didn't realize that my Tiger install disk was not Universal. I did it with a 10.4.6 disk and it worked without a hitch and installed ssh. But now when I try to ssh in to the AppleTV with 'ssh -1 frontrow@', it asks for a Response and I just hit return, and then I get my connection closed after I enter 'frontrow' as a password.

So I get the following error when I run "sudo sh script.sh " in the middle of step 8: pax: WARNING! These patterns were not matched: ./System/Library/Extensions/AudioIPCDriver.kext* ./System/Library/Extensions/IOACPIFamily.kext* It turns out that this is because I am using the "Mac OS X Install DVD" version 10.4.3 (Mac OS X Tiger). It turns out that this DVD was/is for any PowerPC based Tiger compatible Mac; and NOT for Intel based Macs. I was using the wrong CD/DVD. This creates a patchstick with ony ssh and none of the rest of the AppleTV software. Will try again shortly with the Intel-based Tiger CDs, as soon as I find them.
