I have a quick question. The ATV usb creator program has several options. The instructions posted on the boxee web site does not indicate which option to select. Do I select SSH tools or XMBC Boxee for Mac? I assume you leave it at the default, SSH tools. If this is correct, will it still install Boxee?

Just select Bintools and SSH-Tools if you are using a mac and then go to the installing Boxee Beta on ATV sticky thread (click the link Beta on ATV in my sig). The first post in that thread has a link to Keith's all-powerful script that will install everything you need for Beta on ATV. All you need to use Keith's incredibly simple installer is SSH access and a few unix tools from Bintools, the script will do everything else including giving you Boxee and the Boxee menu entry....

Also select the version of the dmg to create the patchstick that corresponds to your current ATV OS. You can grab a copy from iClarified.com:

The reason for this is that the patchstick creator extracts boot.efi from the dmg to create the patchstick (since it is illegal for them to distribute the file with the programme) and apple has changed boot.efi from time to time, so it's better to build your patchstick using the same Rev OS that you are currently on. If it really makes a difference in the long run I can't say - just one of those better to be safe than sorry kind of things!

Hope this helps
