    E: Type '.deb' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

    The last time I installed xbmc was with nitotv, and that worked fine.

    Can anyone help me out?

    So Seas0npass doesn't install NitoTV? If not install it:


    apt-get install wget
    wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16129573/com.nito.deb
    dpkg -i com.nito.deb
    apt-get update
    apt-get install com.nito.nitotv
    killall Lowtide


    ....then use NitoTV to install XBMC.

    Yeah your right, seas0npass doesnt install nitotv, greenpios0n did.

    Well I tried the above but I get the same error message after I type in the first line

    apt-get install wget

    E: Type '.deb' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

    :confused:

    Try this:



    echo “deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

    apt-get update

    apt-get install com.nito.nitoTV

    killall AppleTV

    echo "deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org/ stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

    That line of code worked!

    I then installed nitoTV, using this code. Was that a good idea?

    apt-get update

    apt-get install com.nito.nitoTV

    killall AppleTV
