After being very annoyed I went on, tried again and again. Unplugging USB, tried different little things, hoping somehow it would work.
And you know what? I figured it out! Even it was written just to plug in the USB cable and leave the power cable disconnected I tried it with connecting also the power cable! Haha! It worked as soon I plugged in the power cable. That’s all… As I am an dummy in informatics i feel quiet proud having found an error in your tutorial. Or maybe there is some error with my apple tv and somehow it worked with connecting the power cable? Don’t have a clue. But maybe it helps for somebody as I read that many faced the same problem.
So I am testing now if a jailbroken fire core aTV is what I wanted. But I guess not. There is no VPN tunneling, and I still cannot watch zatto.com / wilmaa and nello.tv which would let me see my TV from home. But at least it can see my MKV movies on TV and don’t have to convert them anymore (which never worked).
Hope some smart TV (Google TV??) is coming soon, with VPN, built in Harddrive, Wireless, good Internetbrowser, attachable keyboard and maybe a webcam. So an all-in-one I would need. I am the only one? Would pay lots of money for that, so Larry and Apple guys where is your real good device? Anybody has any ideas, recommendations?
