I currently am running CouchSurfer (http://brandon-holland.com/software.html) (formally SafariHD) on Take 2. The browser works great but when trying hulu.com, it requires a flash plug-in. I cannot download it directly to the ATV. I've tried copying plug-ins from my mac to the ATV in hopes that would work (Flash 9 installed). No luck, just a ?plugin puzzle piece. I'm not sure if the problem is couchsurfer requires flash 8 or if I'm copying the wrong files? Any help would be appreciated.

How do you copy the files to the AppleTV's hard drive?

I either use Fugu (via ssh) or hook the hard drive up via FW

Can you help with installation instructions using Fugu via ssh? I choose create new ssh tunnel from the ssh menu. What do I fill in in all those fields?

It depends on your settings. First you need to have installed ssh to the AppleTV. Then I enter AppleTV.local, the password is frontrow and force -1 ssh.

Look at this website (http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Main_Page)

Matalino, is your ATV unlocked? Is this why u are able to run couchsurfer on it? Is this a legit program or something? Sounds pretty awesome if u ask me

Well, the ATV isn't "unlocked" (as ATV's are not locked to begin with). I have modded my ATV to do things that you can't do "out of the box" (couch surfer is not an Apple program but it works just fine). See the website I linked in my last post for more information. But if anyone has info about my original question, I would love to hear answers.

I've tried coping HD/Library/Internet Plug-Ins folder (which has "Flash Player.plugin" and "flashplayer.xpt") to the corresponding library folder as well as my ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins folder to that corresponding folder in the ATV. All I get is a plug-in ? puzzle piece alerting me that the plug-in is not working correctly. I can't download it from the web browser and I can't think of anything else which would contain that plug-in file.

I've answered my own question. They updated the plug-in site on awkwardtv.org to reflect that you need new frameworks on 10.4. Check here (http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Safari_HD)at the bottom of the page.
