View Full Version : simple TERMINAL query for nitoTV

Jun 11, 2008, 09:22 AM
i used FUGU to save the nitoTV installer package to the appleTV -very happy with myself! and i have checked to see that it is actually on the aTV, it is.
The installer instructions from nitoTV follow as i'm stuck on what is probably a very simple command line -->

To install it, you will need to copy this folder to your AppleTV. You can copy it to the home folder of the 'frontrow' user if you wish, although its location doesn't really matter.

Next, you need to open an SSH connection to your AppleTV, like so:
ssh -1 frontrow@<your_appletv_address>

When prompted for a password, enter 'frontrow'.

Now go to the directory where you placed this folder on your AppleTV and type the following command:

sudo ./installme

So how do i 'now go to the directory ...'? (BTW, it is copied to the home folder of the frontrow user).

cd <directory where you want to go to>

as you might have worked out tom1971, i'm still not experienced enough to know where i'm going...
where am i going if i'm in the location nominated/ stated?
or maybe you can give me an example of a location and a matching command? then i should be able to work it out
