Couch Surfer New Menu Name

In previous versions Couch Surfer has appeared in the main menu as ‘Internet’. In the new AppleTV 3.0 version Apple has created a new ‘Internet’ menu item which features YouTube and Internet radio. This means Couch Surfer will have to appear as something else. We’ve got a few options, but wanted to give you a chance to voice your opinion.

Is there anyway you could get Couch Surfer to appear under Apple’s new ‘Internet’ menu? I suspect this would be difficult as it would involve altering an Apple menu item, but if possible, it would be nice to have it there rather than a new menu item.

I rather see Couch Surfer up on the menu but… it probably takes up too much space?

So… “Browser” would probably be best.

Add it to the Boxee/XMBC menu, and rename that menu to ‘Apps’ or something…

Unfortunately it needs to be a separate menu item.

I’d just like to get Couch Surfer working first. Nothing!

FYI, it’s getting closer to being release ready.


I hope you’re right about the browser. I am not going to upgrade to Apple TV 3.0 until ATV Flash 4 has the browser and probably Jaman. For over a year, I never used Jaman and a month after I opened a Jaman account, the upgrades happened and froze me out of the upgrades since they don’t support the two primary applications I actually use.

Couch Surfer Pro is now available for the 3.x AppleTV software.

The current version can be downloaded and installed directly on the AppleTV through the Maintenance > Manage Plugins menu.
