    When is Leopard Going to Leak?

    Nice idea. It'd be great if it was done.

    Damn, I wanted #1000.

    When is Leopard Going to Leak?

    It's pretty fake. If you click on the black bar on top of the embedded image to get the full one, you can see a blue 1px border on the left side, top-left corner and on the top border. Also, the shadow has a different default angle, windows in OS X project a shadow at exact 90 degrees. 120 degrees is the default Photoshop CS2 (and earlier) angle for shadow and other layer styles, I'd guess the faker thought we'd be dumb enough to overlook that.
  4. Thanks to everyone, you guys are really great. Everything works here, except when I Cmd + Tab, I'm not able to see the frontmost app. It runs behind aTV. Am I supposed to have 2 displays? Edit: nevermind, got it working, hadn't noticed the tip on the original post.
  5. that's precisely why I used the word "decipher". There must be someone around here that can read that.
  6. I posted a link to something on the tutorial thread a while ago, but no one listened. I think that if someone deciphered this: http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Media_Library we could make the aTV software read your iTunes library by adding hardlinks or something. It might have potential.

    Apple TV software on Mac

    It's pretty good, I used it, but I meant that the guy over at hackint0sh got it running as a Front Row.app, launched when Menu is pressed on the remote.

    Actually, someone at hackint0sh got it running! http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showpost.p...mp;postcount=52
  9. I think I might have found a potential solution to use the media on local Apple TV installs, that is, one-computer setups that want to run aTV as Front Row. I found this over at Awkward TV, I think it could work, but honestly, I can't understand it. If someone smarter than me is willing to simplify this a bit for the rest of us, we might have a solution and I'd appreciate it a lot
  10. Runs pretty well on my iMac. Now if we could find a way to get the media to the software without more than one Mac and if we could figure a good way to exit the UI, we'll be all set. Maybe that extra menu item hack some guy published earlier…

    So the aTV Finder runs well on my iMac, but my Front Row theory doesn't. Now I'd really want to know how to get my media to the software, and I can't come up with a way to make iTunes think I have a bogus ?tv connected to the network and that its media folder is right inside my HD.

    That'd be awesome, since I don't hace 2 macs to try this. I'm getting the Finder patch right now, gonna try my Front Row theory first, then I'll try to find out how to make the aTV Finder play my media.

    I believe Front Row.app is activated by BezelServices when it detects you press cmd+Esc or press the menu button on the remote, and it just launches Front Row.app, even if it's any other renamed app. But Finder.app from the aTV is identified everywhere inside as "Front Row", even in the bundle signatures, so there should be no conflict there. Now I only need the patched Finder… Edit: Ok, "any app" doesn't work, but I'm pretty confident about the aTV Finder. And, do you mean register the user as a fake aTV on iTunes? I don't know how that would work, but it'd be pretty cool.

    There's a patched Finder.app from the aTV going round (actually, just a couple of guys have it, you can do it yourself if you know how), and some guy over at hackint0sh said that tif you copied the BackRow and iPhotoAccess frameworks the way it is described here to a regular OS X install, and instead of replacing the regular Finder.app with the one from the aTV, you renamed it "Front Row.app" and placed it instead of the regular Front Row.app, Finder would launch that one instead, and as it is patched to skip the hardware check, theoretically, it should work. Or at least launch, as a Front Row replacement (probably without the Front Row introduction and being forced to exit it by Force Quit), but someone is gonna have to come up with a way of having it read the media on your Mac.
  15. This can't be done. Even if you get the new Dock.app to launch and work (yeah, Spaces lives there), it would start to make calls to new APIs nonexistant in Tiger (such as Core Animation. That's heavily used in Spaces.)
