Tonight I put the atvusb-creator on my TV. Mine is way out of warranty and we were hoping to be able to add usb-storage to it, use XBMC, and Boxee. After doing the patchstick and getting atvusb-creator booted on the TV I encountered my first problem. The SoftwareMenu portion of the atvusb-creator doesn't work with the latest TV software. It shows up on the main page of the TV but you can't do anything. So I started doing some research. I found an XBMC debug launcher that is installed via SSH through Terminal on my Mac. I did this and now I had another menu option on the TV that gave me XBMC and Boxee. I played around with this and it worked fine. However; I still had the SoftwareMenu options there that were not working. I found the updated Software and installed it via SSH/Terminal. This worked and allowed me to use the SoftwareMenu. I updated the 3rd party plug-ins and restarted my TV to enable them. This is where the big problem occurred. After updating I could no longer see the menu screen for anything. If I restarted I saw the entire intro to the TV and the Apple logo but as soon as it should have gone to the menu the screen goes blank. I can hear the little "beeps" of the cursor moving around when I hit the remote but can't see anything. I ended up having to do a factory restore of this TV in order to get it to work properly again. Before I do the atvusb-creator again is there something I should avoid? Also, once I have this installed how do I get it to recognize an external usb drive that contains a bunch of media so I can have more storage? Thanks!
