[APPLETV] Auto Reset AppleTV script - danmedhurst - 2011-02-03 00:46
Wanted to give a little back to you all.
I've put together a simple vbs script to kill the AppleTV process when / if you get a hang.
EDIT *** FIXED CONTENTS OF RAR - WRONG VARIABLE NAME USED *** SORRY!
It's just a simple vbs that invokes putty.exe, connects, issues the command and exits again.
open the .vbs file and change your password and IP and you're away.
Hope someone finds this useful.
Edit: Obviously this is for windows based users.

Nice. Thanks ! Would be great to have something like this on my android

It should be simple enough to script an ssh client to do the same for Android.. I'll give it a go on my phone.

Why don't you guys just have a shell script running in the background on Apple TV 2 and have it capture certain keypress from apple remote that trigger reset of Apple TV 2 ?

That would be good if we can use a keypress combo, because of the limited buttons on the remote.

How about holding down menu+play for 5 seconds ?

Yeah something like the jailbreak button combination would work well if that's possible.
