sudo /sbin/turbo_atv_enabler.bin
sudo kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/BroadcomCrystalHD.kext

That is incorrect. If you need to do it at every reboot means your rc.local is missing the entries needed

Thanks that worked a treat!

Any ideas why I have had to do this and is there a way I can avoid having to do it after every reboot?

Thanks for the help

This is the contents of my rc.local file:

/sbin/turbo_kext_enabler.bin
/sbin/kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/BroadcomCrystalHD.kext

Is that correct?

Thanks

No..
see it is
turbo_atv_enabler not
turbo_kext_enabler Wink
And that's why it does not work for you on every reboot

edited guide http://www.blogythefox.co.uk/2010/01/09/...tallation/

added points 12 and 13 to step 7 of software installation.

Highlights full copy script to go in to putty in to a light blue to make it clearer what needs to be copied in to putty.

Just got to work out how I edit the file now as if I try to do through winscp I get a access denied error.

Any idea of what I need to enter to do it in putty?

Thanks

Put the file in /tmp first with winscp.
Then use putty to move to destination with

sudo mv /tmp/rc.local /etc/rc.local

I know that it should, but in my case (and obviously in case of some others) it does not work.
But I still wonder how it works in rc.local when sudo asks for root password - how is this handled through a reboot?

When I enter the light blue tekst parts of it turns out to this:


>> /etc/rc.local /System/Library/Extensions/BroadcomCrystalHD.kextecho
>
> fi
kextload: /System/Library/Extensions/BroadcomCrystalHD.kextecho: no such bundle file exists
can't add kernel extension /System/Library/Extensions/BroadcomCrystalHD.kextecho (file access/permissions) (run kextload on this kext with -t for diagnostic output)
bash-2.05b#
bash-2.05b# chown root:wheel /etc/rc.local
bash-2.05b#


Why is it I get the "no such bundle file exists" - could that be where I screw up?

you have a typo there
kext and echo are two different things the first is a kernel extension the other is a command so put a space between kext and echo

I paypal'd you $8 for this guide! I was completly confused on how to do everything, total noob myself... but your guide walked me thru every step and 10 out of 11 of my 1080p videos played flawlessly, i am completly shocked and in awe Smile Ive been waiting for someone to create a noob guide, and yours saved me hours and hours

Now... I would be willing to paypal you money if you went thru all the same effort and created a walk-thru on how to install XBMC-Linux on the AppleTV, as well as enabling NTFS support Smile I'll pay you $20 if you do this, as long as its in detail for noobs Smile

Ok so I now have this in my rc.local file in the correct location:

/sbin/turbo_atv_enabler.bin
/sbin/kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/BroadcomCrystalHD.kext

However still no joy after reboot. Is there something else I am missing?

Thanks

Same problem here except my rc.local has each line twice.
