So, I recently got Dish Network service for my home. Part of the reason was the ability to use the Sling adapter for the 722k DVR to access the programming/recordings from anywhere. This would allow me to use Firefox on my Apple TV1 to see the DVR recording in my bedroom. Problem is, I need to install the SlingPlayer Plugin to the Apple TV and it’s not working. I used CyberDuck to FTP to the ATV and copied the Sling Player Plugin from my desktop Mac to Library/Internet Plug-Ins, restarted everything, then tried. Still, the Dish web site states the Plug-In needs to be installed. I then tried an SSH connection which gave me access to System/Library where I planned to create an Internet Plug-Ins folder and then copy the Plug-In to it. The problem is, I get a permssions error when trying to copy anything from my desktop to the level of the Apple TV. Seems I need root access so, my questions are:
The easiest way would be if I could run the sling player installer mpkg from the Apple TV so everything goes where it needs to. However, I copied it to the Applications folder, went to NitoTV to run it, but nothing happenned. So I guess this can’t be done. Can it?
Otherwise, I need a way to install this Plug-In maybe needing root access to copy the necessary files to the correct locations. Any thoughts?
