Help!!! Purchased aTV 3.2.2 today, fully expecting to be enjoying my Apple TV’s new found capabilities tonight … Well …, not quite.
Try as I might, I have not been able to complete an install of aTV 3.2.2 on my 1GB Lexar USB disk. I have the “OSBoot” disk image mounted on my G5’s (Mac OS X 10.4.11) desktop and the aTV Flash disk image mounted on the same desktop, along with my USB drive. I launch aTVFlash, see the aTV Flash Installer window, click “OK” to “unlock the magic,” click “yes” to “accept this agreement,” select the name of the USB drive, click “Start,” click “OK” to erase the disk, see a few flashes on the USB drive’s LED within about 10 to 15 seconds, and then the USB drive is unmounted :? and the aTV Flash Installer will just sit there for what I am sure will be, if I let it, at least the next millennium. :roll:
At this point, I can use Disk Utility to erase the USB drive so that it will re-mount, using the same name that aTV Flash Installer expects to see. As soon as the drive re-mounts, the aTV flash Installer window changes, listing the plugins that I may “wish to install.” I hit the “OK” button to continue (I believe) the install, see about a 1/4" long progress bar and an indication that the program is “Copying files… 0%.” I wait five minutes, and another five minutes, and yet another five minutes … I leave to begin the dig on the second Panama Canal. I fully expect that when the water is in place and the ships are moving, that the install should be finished. Oh contraire, my naive one. Still 1/4" of progress bar and still 0% files copied … :x :x
What the heck is wrong? Am I doing something wrong? What can be done to correct this problem and achieve an actual install!??! :?
 The only magic I have seen so far is the disappearance of $49.95.
 Actually slightly before the drive’s icon shows up in the finder.
