    Does anybody have a great step by step guide to installing Boxee?

    I have USB Creator 10.

    I download Boxee today.

    I have AppleTV with 2.3 installed.

    Create the patchstick ..

    Basically run the USBCreator with the USB key in you want to use, you need to have ATV-Patchstick selected, and a tick by ssh, bin, xbmc, boxee to make the correct stick.. make sure the target device is correct at the bottom (it should auto detect your usb key) then..

    - Power down the AppleTV
    - Stick the newly created Patchstick in the usb slot in back of your ATV
    - Restart AppleTV
    - It will boot from Patchstick and do its stuff.. message will show when done
    - Remove Patchstick from AppleTV - Restart AppleTV

    From the Boxee menu now present choose 'Update' and Update the 'XBMC/Boxee Launcher' first, it will install and dump you back at the AppleTV menu

    Then go back into the Boxee Menu and Update Boxee to the latest version, currently 4277.

    When message says its complete, hit menu to go back to the AppleTV menu and run Boxee!

    Done. (You will need your Boxee account details to make a profile)
