[AppleTV] Broadcom Crystal HD Decoder Apple TV step-by-step installation guide - purplechris - 2010-01-09 22:15
After following the procedures and getting everything working, even as a noob in modding the apple tv, i thought a full guide, will images for both software and hardware installation would be helpful to the community, and i would like to give something back.
So here is my start to finished hardware then software installation guide for the broadcom on the atv. i really hope this helps someone.
Full credit obviously needs to go to Davilla, XBMC Team, Turbo Team, Matt for the guide i used and have adapted, the original writer and photographer of the hardware installation and of course you for using this guide.
i hope this helps, any comments or feedback would be great.

Great guide, thanks
But, please put another background on the page, almost impossible to read....

Thanks a lot for this!
One question that really answers itself - but if I don't see the Crystal card in Video setting it's not installed the right way or it's not working, right?

exactly what i was looking for... thanks man...
when my card arrives, I'll be using this guide for sure...

Thanks for the guide, just running through it now....
Typo on Step 7 number 5 - one too many 'lib' in there....
e.g. line reads....
5. Enter in to putty: chmod 755 /usr/lib/libcrystalhd.dylib
5. Enter in to putty: chmod 755 /usr/lib/crystalhd.dylib
had me confused for a bit.

Step 8 is not working here....
Trying to work out why, in my Launcher - Downloads I currently have
XBMC 9.11 Application
XBMC 9.04.1 Application
Boxee alpha 0.9.14.6... Application
Launcher 3.2.1 Launcher
Going in and out of Launcher Settings had no effect on Downloads list
Rebooting ATV had no effect on Downloads list

Appears the XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlist part is the failing.
" defaults read com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlist
2010-01-10 10:40:08.889 defaults
The domain/default pair of (com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher, XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlist) does not exist"
I did the
"defaults write com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlistURLs -array http://www.sshcs.com/xbmc/Info.asp"
part manually, and it now appears....
Still waiting on my BC card, just getting everything ready software wise for when it arrives, so can't check past Step 8 I'm afraid.

I managed to have the download link show up. However, after downloading (and showing "download complete"), I still have the old "final Camelot" release and not the nightly. Any idea?

Thanks yzeyze its been driving me crazy for about 4 hours, you mentioned you updated it manually how do you do that ??
