1st time poster on the forum and I hope you can shed some light on my issue and apologies for the long post. Before starting I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone here (kudos to guardianmax). In the past, if I had run into any issues, this forum has always been a fantastic source for finding solutions.
OK onto my issue. Fundamentally, since running the 4.1.3 update from the maintenance menu, the Nito Smart Installer will not install, regardless of where you attempt to install it from, either in the Nito setup menu or the ATV Maintenance setup. Another odd thing also occurred which, which was the reason for trying to run the Smart Installer in the 1st place. When I did the initial 4.1.3 upgrade, I went to the Maintenance > Install Extra’s menu, but there was no listings of the plug-ins available. It just had the Menu Heading “Install Extra’s” and nothing else. This then prompted me to actually download the 4.1.3 Update from the ATV site and do a complete reinstall, inclusive of reverting to the ATV’s factory default (3.0.1) version. I let the ATV update to 3.0.2 take place and at the same time also decided to hardwire the ATV to my network to ensure reliable throughput when downloading the plug-ins and updates needed to get things up and running.
After doing all the required steps to reinstall from scratch, I once more get to the point where I require to run the Nito Smart Installer and it errors out again with a partial install. When I view the partial “MacOSXUpdCombo10.4.9Intel.dmg” file via FTP to the ATV, it is exactly 5663 bytes every time. I have obviously tried removing/deleting the dud dmg file and reinstalling, but I just get the same result and as mentioned before, it fails to install no matter where you try to install the Smart Installer from.
Here’s a copy of the nito.log which echo’s the same issue posted by another member in this thread.
