I’m expecting someone to say it’s totally my issue, which I realize is likely, but I’m boggled trying to get the software loaded on my ATV.
Started with an 8gb Corsair Flash Voyager, loaded it up fine with the install instructions (after formatting to Mac Extended), attempted to load it on the box itself and got nothing. Restored the aTV to 2.1, tried again, nothing. No text scrolling, nothing to indicate it booted up differently.
Dug around in here, determined the likely culprit was the flash drive. Bought one that was listed as compatible (Kingston 1 gb Datatraveler). Formatted properly, loaded the software as instructed (always from the .dmg). Things looked good.
Back to loading the software on the box. Unplug, insert flash drive, replug. Nothing. Regular startup screen, no scrolling text, no finish indicator. Held down menu and - sign to reset, nothing diffferent.
Any guidance would be so appreciated. Thanks.
