Hi all,

I have a 2.1 aTV with 3.2 aTV Flash. I have an iMac 24" and a Time Capsule 1TB, all connected in a wired home network.

I can access my aTV with FTP (CuteFTP for Mac) and send some movies (DivX with .srt subtitles) but i have some questions to make :

  • Why can’t i watch DivX movies with my aTV conneted to my Pionner Plasma in 720p ? If i do this, the movie wont play in full screen :cry:
    I have to change aTV to 480p and then the same DivX movie is in full screen mode… Is there a problem or this is how it should be ?

  • When using FTP, can i create other folders besides Movies (like TV Shows ou Animated Movies, or DVD’s), or should i create them inside the Movies folder ? I tried yesterday, but on my aTV i couldn’t see any folder besides Movies…

  • Other problem that i have is that i can’t access my shared folders on my iMac neither my Time Capsule 1TB disk…that is to say that i can’t also manage to access my other(s) USB Drive(s) connected to the Time Capsule USB port…In NivoTV (now DVD), i go to network, i see both iMac and Time Capsule, but when i try to access them (guest or registered user modes) i now get the “1600” error…before doing the 3.2 aTV Flash my aTV always restarted at this point.

For solving this third problem, i read some topics and tried to use the SMB method, but when i tried to “ssh -1 frontrow@appletv.local” in terminal, i now get this message :

Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
It is also possible that the RSA1 host key has just been changed.
The fingerprint for the RSA1 key sent by the remote host is
Please contact your system administrator.
Add correct host key in /Users/xxxx xxxxxxx/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
Offending key in /Users/xxxx xxxxxxx/.ssh/known_hosts:2
RSA1 host key for appletv.local has changed and you have requested strict checking.
Host key verification failed.
(xxxx xxxxxxxx is my iMac user and of course i’m administrator)

Can you please help me with these problems ?

Thanks a lot ! :smiley:

2 Options

You can do this:


ssh-keygen -R Your IP Address




rm -f .ssh/known_hosts

Regarding your last topic, yes, if you can use the terminal. The file known_hosts is part of a protection system that helps reduce the chances of being hacked. When you ssh into the ATV, this file is created with the RSA1 key referenced.

All you have to do is run terminal and in your .ssh directory on your computer (not the ATV) delete the current known_hosts file

This should do it:

rm /.ssh/known_hosts

Hi drm0223

The problem is that i don’t have a folder called .ssh …

I tried that on Terminal and got this error : “rm: /.ssh/known_hosts: No such file or directory”

I deleted that key in CyberDuck after enabling the ability to view hidden files and directories.

Hi B1tr0t

Thanks a lot, i managed to delete those files and ssh recovery.dmg to AppleTV. Then i followed the steps, but i still can’t connect my AppleTV from Finder or reverse…

I am also getting that massage and unable to remove by typing the command above any advice would be great.

thank you


Just use the cyberdunk method. I managed to do that with cyberdunk
