    Hi All.

    My Father-in-law just bought an appleTV1 with a CrystalHD card installed, the same as ours.

    I wanted to install XBMC (not the Crytalbutu or Openelec) Now before everyone jumps on me for that, it's because he wants iTunes compatibility for some reason..

    So My question is..
    Can I just clone my working XBMC Apple TV drive from one Apple TV to another??
    if so How?? Since the Launcher links to XBMC eden 11.0 with crystal are dead.

    or is there an easy way to install it through SSH?

    just ssh into the apple tv with cyberduck then go into the xbmc folder and download all the files. then go into the other apple tv and upload the files on there. i have done it many times from switching to apple tv to fire tv to computer to my moms fire tv. just takes about an hour or two depending on your internet speed
