Step 1 (accessing the Apple TV): in the Terminal application on your Mac, enter the following:
$ ssh root@<your ATV2 IP adress>
if AppleTV.local doesn’t work (find your atv IP address in Settings ->General -> Network).
Use “alpine” as your password if you haven’t changed it already.
- If you named your Apple TV something other than “AppleTV” then you need to replace the text above.
- The first time you do this, it might take a few moments to establish a connection.
$ echo “deb http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2 ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
After XBMC is successfully installed, Frontrow (ATV2 home screen) will restart and you will see XBMC in it.
Here is how to get XBMC if you have already installed aTV Flash or nitoTV:
- aTV Flash: download XBMC via Maintenance –> Manage Extras.
- nitoTV: install the latest nitoTV to auto-install XBMC
