In Topic: Re-designed Apple TV announced

03 September 2010 - 02:33 AM

It's just the same ol' aTV in a smaller form factor. What are the processor specs? Apple isn't talking except to say it's their A4 chip, no mention of clock speed. As you know if it's any kind of benefit, they would tout it, so it must be low. If it had the power to play 1080p from multiple file formats it might be worth buying, even if it was just to hack it and put XBMC on it.

I gave up my aTV 1.0 because it sucked for playing most HD files that aren't re compressed for it's ATV slim profile. The only value the old version had was in cracking it to XBMC, but otherwise it was exactly what people say - a front end for the iTunes store that you have to pay for; they SHOULD give it away, or even sell them at cost. It would be a great way to grow their market share.

That said, I got a WDTV Live and it plays all my stuff over the network with no hassles. The interface is a bit light, but it plays youtube as well and it allows me to plug in 2 external USB devices and it plays just about every file format you can think of... Oh, and it does have hacks for it too...

hmm weird anytime I right click on a youtube video it says flash player but that's on a desktop :S. Anyways, hulu is great when you dun have cable alot of good shows end up on hulu.
and you dun have to pay 99c or more per episode!
netflix is great but it costs money as well.

In Topic: Apple iTV rumors heat up

26 August 2010 - 11:42 AM

The next generation device will obviously have to compete with "actual" cable TV. It's an outmoded delivery system whose only value is in the existing infrastructure. Everyone is wishing to have a replacement, even the cable companies themselves, but the question is who will bring the most compelling device to the table... let's not forget Google's plans for the Google TV coming up as well!

there are rumors that this might compete with actual cable t.v. but I dunno how well it's going to do looking back at the previous genereation of the Apple TV. If Apple establishes it well with tv program content along with the a fore mentioned things in the above post then they would stand out with their new product.

Oh and and Ed it seems wordpress might be the culprit to those random question marks that show up in front page posts

In Topic: Snow Leopard on P5KPL-CM - Please HELP!

21 February 2010 - 08:00 PM

unfortunately on 10.6.2 ,the sleep progress is still under testing...my system gots lockups today.
only my other mobo that can sleep, dont use sleepenabler.kext for 10.6.2, i 'll check later if it go....

Sorry about the delay responding.
I wasn't able to get it to work with the method you described, or any revisions of Empire EFI that have come out since my original post (up to 1.085R2)

However, I did find a distro called Snow Pegasus that works more or less fine. I select default options, Azalia Audio and NVEnabler and it's all it needs to go. I still have to iron out some glitches with it though, because it crashes when I use my software RAID (external) drive, and sometimes it just panics for no reason when it otherwise looks like it's running fine.

I'm hoping it will be just a matter of finding the right combination of kexts and/or fixes. Fingers are crossed that it doesn't become more complicated between 32 and 64 bit versions!!

I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but couldn't you just write a launch daemon that would run every so many seconds and verify that your connection is active and restart it if it isn't? I would be as simple as making a .plist file that points to your script with a time interval specified etc.


I made a similar fix for bluetooth activation here, that you can use as an example:



hi. i have an PPTP internet connection throught VPN.
and i've made easy script what allow me to auto connect vpn after boot.
here's the code:

  • tell application "Internet Connect"
  • launch -- starts in background
  • try
  • connect
  • end try
  • quit
  • end tell
i make application with this code and just put it in dock and right-click - open at login, and remove it from dock.

i need a script, which will alllow me to reconnect my vpn, when disconnected.
can you help?

I've got some similar ideas of my own I'd like to try.. how do you add items to the install options or install menu?

Wow that sounds like a mouthful, but I will give it a try and let you know how it goes!
Hopefully I can find a way to simplify the process a bit, since I have a few friends with the same board.
