Feel for you. I'm lucky that my TV faces Seymour mountain in Vancouver so I can pick up CBC in glorious OTA HD.
/sorry for the threadjack.

Could you help me out? I have Apple TV (3.0.2), patchsticked with XBMC 9.11 and nitoTV installed and running OK. I have just ordered Crystal HD from logicsupply and expect it to be delivered soon.
Could you please let me know the easiest way to install all necessary files on Apple TV to get 720p working? I know the hardware part from youtube, but I am totally not sure how to install drivers and how to get the proper XBMC into the Apple TV.
I hope I don't need to compile anything on Apple TV or elsewhere (I don't have a MAC). It would be best if a permanent solution (working after reboot) was available. Please feel free to paste command lines in necessary.
Thanks in advance.

Can you give a link to posts were it is explained how to install files on Apple TV, but without compiling? Which steps can I skip in his guide if I choose to download binaries only?
What about getting proper XBMC? How to do it the easiest way? If I have 9.11 already, can I backup it before upgrading?

replace 1.0.1 with 1.0.3 and you are good to go

the link was very helpful. I used the ssh command to add repo to launcher. It installed OK, but since my card has not arrived yet, I remains to be seen.
How to install latest XBMC from snv? Can I use launcher as well? Is there a recommended build for crystal HD, or just the latest? Trac says it is 3 weeks to final release. Do you think it is better to wait or just install now from svn?

Is it true that the projects around XBMC were canceled or delayed? There is a lot of activity going on from December till the end of February and then suddenly no binary builds any more. Same with Crystal HD drivers and support. Is there going to be a completely stable version any time soon?

Which one of these is recommended build for Crystal HD?
How can I make a list of these builds appear as install options in Launcher?

So to answer my own question. If you have Apple TV patchsticked and with Launcher and nitoTV installed and all, and you have Crystal HD card and want to enable it in XBMC, then ssh to the box and run these commands to add installation options to the Launcher:
defaults write com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlistURLs -array-add http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/osx/update_urls.plist
defaults write com.teamxbmc.xbmclauncher XBMCAdditionalDownloadPlistURLs -array-add http://crystalhd.sartori.at/files/crystalhd.plist
Install latest nightly build of XBMC and install crystal HD drivers. If there is anything missing from these steps, please feel free to add more info.
