What do you mean by "successful"? I've got no problem connecting to netflix via VPN using unifi. Or do you mean streaming TM's hypo tv channels through ATV?

Depending on what you want to do with it .. you can stream movies from your Mac through itunes to the AppleTV. If you want to subscribe to online streaming services in the US, yes, you need either VPN or a mechanism such as unblock-us.com ..

Sad to say, no you can't use appletv to watch those channels streamed by Unifi's IPTV. Read more about it here:

Yup, it works just like those media players sold here:

http://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopi...62384&hl=player

Just that, without jailbreaking it, you can only stream movies through itunes. There are few other services offered which are free like youtube etc. which I've never try them.

Apple TV is not your average mediaplayer. I'be been using it for about 2 months now and have stopped buying DVDs or Blurays. Jailbreaking is the way to go to fully utilize this magical little black box. Also AirPlay mirroring will blow you away. Everything on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 will appear on your LCD TV. I can jailbreak the apple TV in less than 40 minutes. I hardly watch astro or iptv nowadays. All latest and old movies, tv shows, music concerts, comedies etc at your fingertips 24 hours a day, for FREE!

how about without jailbreak it, can i use whatever app in my iphone/ipad to do the AirPlay mirroring or only those app with tv out support?

Yes, literally everything on your iPhone 4s and iPad 2 will be on your screen. There will be black bars at the sides but it will appear full screen for movies, photos and certain games. AirPlay mirroring works without jailbreak as well. U have to update to the latest 5.0.1 software.

if you're a football fan, sad to say the best and most reliable method would still be subscribing to astro >.>

anyone who have tried streaming any match or heck even searching for em while streaming would agree ._.

I guess you've the Apple TV 1st generation instead of the new black box. The black box is not as powerful as the old AppleTV and I couldn't find those media streaming service from my XBMC list.

No mate, I'm using Apple TV2, just got it about 3 months ago. Icefilms and navi-x are very easy to install and streams beautifully. U have to install the repository and addons manually. It's not built in to xbmc. I cannot explain how to do it here as the mods might remove the thread. U can actually do it in less than 5 mins.

It's better if u re-jailbreak with season pass for 4.4.4. More stable and much mor bug fixes and features, like AirPlay mirroring.
To load icefilms and navi-x, you need to download a program for windows called winscp, google it. And then transfer the zip files for icefilms and navi-x, which you can find very easily via google into the media folder of your apple tv. There are lots guides to do this. Lemme know if u need any help. Good luck!

Astro won't sue Apple since Apple only allows few streaming services, mostly US based one. If Apple decided to go local, they probably will ask Astro to develop an app, just like those Netflix, Hulu etc. that run on the AppleTV.

Apple tv can play.mkv and h.264 format up to 720p, .avi 720p file will result in stuttering as the A4 chip in the apple tv can't handle it.

I got my apple tv from the west 54th st. apple store in new York. After conversion it's about RM340 or so. Anyone needs help jail breaking and installing all the addons, give me a holler if ur in the klang valley. I'll do it for you for the cost of a Teh Tarik! It's just my passion to help people enjoy good entertainment. Or we could organize an apple tv TT or something.

There are quite a number of guides out there, search for 'firecore seas0npass' on google and you'll get what you wanted smile.gif

To JB, make sure you've the AppleTV connected via micro-USB and it shouldn't be connected to A/C power. The rest of the guide can be found in firecore's website.

There is easier method to install XBMC but you need to pay for it.. to install XBMC through ssh, here is the guide:

So (as with free method) I nee to:
1. Jailbreak it with 'firecore seas0npass'
2. Install XBMC (media center) via http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW-T...C_on_Apple_TV_2

No idea what smarttv is, but with appletv, you can install xbmc .. and as aceedburn, you can do a lot of thing with it smile.gif .. I couldn't play much with mine since my son's have the sole ownership of the appletv + tv .. can't watch astro too .. need to get another tv smile.gif

Just wondering if the topic starter is still active, probably we could do a first page FAQ and guides on how to install xbmc, navi-x, or on how to subscribe to the streaming services.

don't think so bro, as jailbreaking is considered "piracy" and the thread will get deleted by the admins. Unless there'sa private forum, we can probably only discuss these things via pm.

Jailbreaking is no longer considered as piracy, there are one thread each in iphone, ipad and ipod sub-forums. I believe admins are okay with this. There is no piracy discussion anyway on AppleTV since no commercial applications are allowed on it.

Two ways:

1) I believe XBMC can play avi and mkv (haven't test this), if yes, you can mount your iMac filesystem from xbmc. Activate file sharing and use the guide here to get afp running on apple tv2:

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?t=109723

2) Stream it, use Plex or vlc, guide to install plex media server can be found here:

Ok, now, go to XBMC, videos, files. Add videos, select Browse, scroll down for ZeroConfig browser, add your ip address using:

afp://youripaddress .. it should let you add the path.

On mine, my shared Mac machine is listed without me specifying the afp://ipaddress manually..

Nope, my server has a fixed ip. I'm no longer using my tm provided router. Do you have access to the router? If yes, check under network and see if you can have a static ip address there. Otherwise, just change your imac ip from dhcp to static (on your imac setting that it)..

Yes for sure, just remember to use the same subnet ip address. Best is to have an ip address not in the range that set in dhcp.

Nope, my server has a fixed ip. I'm no longer using my tm provided router. Do you have access to the router? If yes, check under network and see if you can have a static ip address there. Otherwise, just change your imac ip from dhcp to static (on your imac setting that it)..

I change at my imac la. More easier laugh.gif hahahahaha. Any drawback?

One more thing, now my xbmc is not nice anymore as got dead file in there. I can seem to delete the whole folder in there. Maybe uninstall xbmc and install it again with nitotv

Unifi Router scare me la. I noob in networking. ptuiii la me as engineer and programmer. Router only, so scare. ahahhaha



Anyway, I set with my imac.
Two option:
1. Using DHCP with manual address
2. Manually.


Right now I choose Using DHCP with manual address

Apa punye field engineer daa, unifi router setting is nothing lah, buat malu engineer je .. haha.. (btw, am engineer by qualification but stuck in software development maintaining an ERP system).

For the static IP, better to assign it to lower IP address .. have no idea how that DHCP with manual address work, I believe it will update router's database so the next machine connecting won't get the same IP address as your iMac .. probably .. no idea .. smile.gif

XBMC setting? No idea bro, is there anything within XBMC that will reset it? Resetting the apple tv won't help since XBMC is the one that created the playlist. Probably ssh into your appletv and find the playlist file .. should've within the XBMC directory.


Added on February 3, 2012, 10:14 amFound here in xbmc wiki:

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Userdata_folder

Probably clearing up the folder will do .. but you need to put in all the settings..

Unfortunately not mate, unless you had saved your ssh blobs prior. And if your unit is the new apple tv 3, you may need to wait longer for the jailbreak to be available.

apple tv comes only with HDMI output. If there is hdmi-to-vga converter, you might be able to.. but haven't tested this myself, so, no idea really.

The new AT2 has never been jailbroken before and I do understand that Tinyumbrella can save the blobs but not sure it can save the blobs on a non jailbroken ATV2 or can it?
Furthermore can I use redsnow to build the patched blobs instead of ifaith to create custom ipsw?
And I guess an edit to the hosts file would be required.

Q: How do I jailbreak an older version?
A: This process will let you install/jailbreak any version of the ATV2 software that's either a) still being signed by Apple or b) that you have SHSH blobs for.
update iTunes to the latest version
save your SHSH blobs if you haven't yet
download the iOS firmware file
if the version you want to install isn't being signed by Apple (they typically only sign the latest version and sometimes one previous version), open Tiny Umbrella and start the TSS server (assumes you have SHSH blobs for the version you're installing)
get Seas0npass and follow the guide EXCEPT Option-click (Right-click in Windows) the "Create IPSW" button to select an older iOS firmware file or you'll be upgraded to the most recent iOS version, also remember to only plugin the microUSB cable (not the power cable)
prevent updates from crashing XBMC
if you run into problems, review the troubleshooting tips and try to jailbreak again
Seas0npass may not change the ATV menu. You'll need to ssh to your ATV2 (using Putty under Windows, or Terminal on the Mac, see below) to verify it's been jailbroken and to load additional software, e.g. wget, XBMC, nitoTV (install info below), etc. Alternatively, you can use Greenpois0n (video tutorial) or Pwnagetool.


As long as it is Apple TV 2nd Gen and the OS is 4.4.4, I believe you can fire up TinyUmbrella, save the SHSH blobs, and then just follow the instruction above. So .. do not upgrade to later version first before saving the SHSH bloobs.

Planning to get an Apple TV 3rd Gen.
wondering what are the main reasons you guys are using it for?

it used to be my primary means of streaming from Netflix since I don't really like turning my ps3 on simply for Netflix (random game invites)

but since prime is available on the ps3 now my apple tv is used primarily to keep the balance of qi stable in its current place of storage - somewhere under my bed

It's still affordable.
If u compare iPhone to this, the price is a huge difference.
What apple tv does is amazing, looking at how small the product is

this sums things up pretty well -


QUOTE
Wow, not sure what to make of all this rationalization of illegal behavior here. Does it matter if the price seems too high? No. Are the businesses trying to make money? Yes. Are the businesses doing anything illegal? No. Is it illegal to steal? Yes.

I think a lot of people think it's OK to steal movies and music because of some contrived rationalization. But I wonder what those same people would think or feel if their work or money was stolen from them using the same rationalization. And teaching children that stealing is OK so long as it's a large faceless corporation seems downright chilling to me.

No matter what post-modern feel-good bull-crap teachings say, right is right and wrong is wrong.



but on that note, netflix used to be a great source for copyrighted contents but they've been lacking lately and the price hike did it for me.

prime > netflix.

Amazon Prime that it .. Been using Netflix for more than half a year now and I would say that it is amazing .. at least it keeps my son busy with all the Barneys, Thomas, Power Ranges, and the likes .. and I can still watch the old TopGear releases .. if you're subscribing Netflix for up-to-date TV shows or movies, than you've chosen the wrong content provider.

Yup. Correct. I normally catch up old series once a while.
Also Netflix on itunes can pay using Itunes gift card. Now the rate is very cheap. (around 1USD = RM2.8 or lower).
I terminated by usual Netflix account and use New netflix account on AppleTV.

But 1 thing I found out is that the Netflix video quality on AppleTV is slightly worse than Netflix on Roku2 XS. Somehow it is hard for AppleTV Netflix to stream at HD reso.
Hopefully either Apple or Netflix can fix it.

i did originally mention how netflix is good for older content but somehow edited it because it sounded overly cynical :x

to those with atv3, are you guys having any issues with streaming content on it? specifically with the service mentioned above :P

in order to use non-jb apple TV, must have at least fast connection and unlimited bandwidth,
Bcoz there is no place for u to choose 480, 720 or 1080HD, it will automatic choose the highest 1080p quality. and it suck up my 20G umobile bandwith easily.
