I'm extremely good at following directions (everything I need to know I learned in kindergarten), but I don't know terminal. If you give me line-by-line code, including how to copy over files, that'd be awesome. I've used SSH successfully to install Alpha Boxee on Apple TV 3.0, but there's a few steps missing here (i.e. how to copy over the necessary files from my Mac to the ATV) for me to get Beta running.

Thanks for helping this NOOB out.

UPDATE: I did a little online research, downloaded Fugu, and managed to get NitoTV on my AppleTV in the Frontrow directory. Then I ran the SSH commands in terminal, but got an error:

Welcome to the AppleTV (via atv-usbcreator)
frontrow@192.168.1.44's password:
-bash-2.05b$ cd ./nitoTV\ Take\ Three/
-bash-2.05b$ ./installme
You must use sudo to run this command.

What'd I do wrong?

Just precede those commands with sudo and enter your password when asked.

One 4-letter word did the trick. Thanks!

Some help please... I'm using Putty under Windows Vista.

Almost at the end of the guide, in step iii) after copy FirefoxInstallScript.sh to frontrow directory I run this command:

Code:
mv /Users/frontrow/Applications/Boxee.app /Users/frontrow/Applications/Boxee.alpha.app
This is what I get

Code:
-bash-2.05b$ mv: rename /Users/frontrow/Applications/Boxee.app to /Users/frontrow/Applications/Boxee.alpha.app: No such file or directory
Does it has to be like that or that is a message telling me that something is wrong?

Then after writing this command:

Code:
rm /Applications/Boxee.app
I get this message:

Code:
rm: /Applications/Boxee.app: is a directory
I would like to know if that is what I'm suppose to see or if it is a different message. ???

And my last question is:

When I run this command:

Code:
./FirefoxInstallScript.sh
I get this:

Code:
-bash: ./FirefoxInstallScript.sh: Permission denied
I'm pretty sure that FirefoxInstallScript.sh is in frontrow directory 'cause I can see it there when I login thru WinSCP.

What is right and what is wrong? What do I have to do to correct the wrong parts?

Thanks in advance.

Just got home and did a quick test and boxee beta looks good. Did a quick test and hulu works ok, but I need to do further testing. Fox didn't work, but I didn't give it too much of a test. So far so good.

Will do more tests once the kids are in bed.

I think firefox is probably needed to get the plug in to work - although I'm not sure. Having firefox around couldn't hurt right?
Well, I'm fine with the hard drive, because I use boxee to stream everything from my Mac. Basically, I'm asking, if we're installing NitoTV just to get some specific files, what I'd like to know is a list of the supporting files I need and where they go. I've installed Flash a while back, and perian, all from command prompts to play around. I'm more than comfortable with the command line, I just need a list of the components that are required.

If I don't HAVE to litter my menu with Nito and the such (will just confuse my wife), I'd rather do the manual work myself.

Thanks to any help you can provide.

You seem to have boxee in /Applications instead, so especially for you a revised step (iii):

(iii) Grab the FirefoxInstallScript.zip from this thread. Unzip on your computer and copy FirefoxInstallScript.sh to your ATV (make sure it is in frontrow directory)

SSH into you ATV and issue (one line at a time)

(skip first line if you've already done it successfully first time you tried)

Code:
mv /Users/frontrow/Library/Application\ Support/BOXEE /Users/frontrow/Library/Application\ Support/BOXEE.alpha
sudo mount -o remount,rw /dev/disk0s3 /
sudo mv /Applications/Boxee.app /Applications/Boxee.alpha.app
./FirefoxInstallScript.sh
If it finished with no errors:

Code:
sudo reboot
Hope this helps you (and anyone else with this problem)

Jim
