  1. Does anyone still happen to have that patched Finder executable, ATV4mac or the BackRow Installer? It's nowhere to be found on the internet. I'm trying to patch together a virtual AppleTV to act as an iTunes Server, actually syncing the physical audio files. To my knowledge, the 1st gen AppleTV was the only device that ever did this without user interaction. Why hasn't anyone tried this? Any help is appreciated!

    G5 (Latest model) Front Panel Pinout

    Just use my pinout from above - everything except Firewire works. To get this to work you'll have to directly connect your wiring to the soldering pins of the Fw jack.

    G5 (Latest model) Front Panel Pinout

    So... did anyone ever get this to work? It's the late 2005 model quad G5 and I couldn't find a pinout anywhere. Good news is: Only two pins missing :-) Maybe someone can fill in the blanks. This is what I got so far: 01 02 03 04 05 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 Audio USB Firewire Button/LED unknown 01: Audio Left 02: Audio GND 03: Audio Right 04: ??? 05: FIREWIRE GND (double) 06: USB VCC (+5V) 07: GND 08: GND 09: FIREWIRE TPB- 10: FIREWIRE TPB+ 11: LED 12: Firewire FW802C IC VDDA (+3.3V) 13: ??? 14: GND 15: FIREWIRE VCC (double) (+12V) 16: GND 17: USB D- 18: USB D+ 19: GND 20: FIREWIRE TPA- 21: FIREWIRE TPA+ 22: BUTTON My numbering might seem a little odd, but 5 and 15 are actually double width contact pads. Firewire signal isn't connected directly to the pins but to an Agere FW802C IC. Soldering wires to this thing was insane! -- Apple Mac Powermac G5 late 2005 model frontpanel front panel connector pinout
