Sounds like the file is not being parsed then.

The log file says it's being parsed.

Run the echo command then and check that temperature is being output from a TTY session.

nvidia-settings was not installed with the CrystalHD Linux image. I installed it and now the temp shows up. Thanks for your help and making the apple tv awesome!

in the harmony config program on your computer set the remote up as a media center pc->plex->plex player. after that follow the instructions in the above post.
works well for me.

Hmm ... is there anything special to add to this? That is, do you just make a text file and add some .scrpt or whatever and change permissions? Writing xbmc scripts doesn't seem obvious. Any help would really be appreciated as this would be a nice way to do it.

Any help would really be appreciated as this would be a nice way to do it.Create the file in your text editor of choice. Save it with a name, I called my reboot.sh and then make it executable with the following:
After that, I just added a favorite and navigated to wherever I saved reboot.sh and chose that. When I want to reboot the atv, I simply pull up my favorites, select the reboot script and voila.
I also created a shutdown script for when I want to pull power from the atv. Since the atv is not ACPI compliant, it won't power down fully, but with the script, the hard drive will park and the OS will stop, thereby decreasing the chances of data corruption greatly. Of course, the same applies to this, create the file, make it executable, choose it as a favorite.
In case you're wondering the command breaks down as follows:
I use the default password for the CrystalHD install, therefore the first atv.
The pipe symbol, the |, feeds whatever precedes it into the next command, so atv is piped into the sudo command, which with the -S switch is looking for the password from stdin (standard input, which is what the | was for). This is needed because both reboot and shutdown need elevated privileges to work.
The -h switch tells linux to halt after shutdown, as opposed to restarting or something else. And, finally, the "now" portion, tells the OS not to wait, but to do it now.

Thank you for the great explanation for this and the shutdown script. The shutdown script will also come in handy. For some odd reason I don't know how to add either as a favorite. If I try to add an addon then I can never navigate to the scripts folder ( wheer put the two files). When you say to add a favorite, do you mean "addon"?
Edit: Ok, I used the file manager and added it to favorites. But the script doesn't seem to work. It seems to think that atv is a command.

I am thinking very seriously about using this method on my ATV1 (I had no idea of the footprint difference) My question is in reguards to remotes, using the origional patchstick I am able to use my philips prestigo 8015 universal remote, I was wondering if I would be able to continue using this remote.
