Further proof that these guys just don't sleep, AT ALL!

Good one, guys, very nice!

When do you guys plan on adding the keyword search feature for local networked drives? This would be SO needed for those of us with large libraries of movies and do not want to scroll through hundreds of folders to find a specific file.  thanks!

Awesome update!

Thanks

Well Played! FireCore - the best investment since purchasing the AppleTV2 ... 1.6 FTW!

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 11:40am

Thanks for continuing to update this product. I enjoy using my appletv so much now that I have ATVflash.

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 11:55am

how do you use the subtitles download feature?

Submitted by donalds.85237 on June 1, 2012 - 11:56am

I ahve the newest Apple TV  will this work with it as well ??

Submitted by seanl.7340 on June 1, 2012 - 11:56am

I love the constant support and upgrades from you guys. A couple humble requests, though:

-I really miss the ability to manage menu items since upgrading to the new iOS. The media icon looks so lonely on the second row, especially considering I never use the TV shows icon. This was so easy with the options you included in the previous version(s), is it outside the realm of possibility to ask for it to return?

-It would also be killer to sort media by genre!

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 11:56am

I don't know what happened, but after I updated, my tab is gone. I can't find the Media Player anywhere.
The update is successful, it's listed as installed under Maintenance. Anything I can try to do?

I have an Apple TV 2,
running 4.2.2 (2203)

Cheers

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 11:57am

i dont see the subtitles option in grid view??? how do you download them?

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 11:57am

When can we expect dvd playback resume?

Submitted by davidp.0513 on June 1, 2012 - 11:58am

Not sure I understand what 'Added support for purchased iTunes content (matching iTunes login required) means as I cannot find any reference to it in Media or Maintainece. I currently use iTunes Match via the ATV Music icon. Am I missing something?

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 11:59am

updated and now it crashes every time I start XBMC or Media Player to watch a movie. Very disappointed and without an option to watch a movie right when the weekend starts - great! Have not had any problems for more than a year - this is a first!

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:01pm

I second that. It's such a pain in the butt to have to scroll through everything when I've got 300+ movies in iTunes. That would be an awesome feature!

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:02pm

"Added support for purchased iTunes content." : AWESOME!

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:06pm

There is a logitech clone of the Apple wireless for half the price. It is labeled as Android tablet keyboard, bit there is not a shred of difference

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:06pm

How do I get the iTunes purchased content to play? I have content hosted on a NAS

Submitted by Dryft on June 1, 2012 - 12:07pm

No, there's no Jailbreak for the ATV3 yet which is required to install this package.

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:07pm

OP here. I can even see Media under Overflow Settings, but changing where it's displayed doesn't do anything Frown

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:07pm

I have updated and then I have no image on TV, and I cannot connect through VNC.
rebooted several times and same thing.
I ssh'd in an I can see an error coming from nitotv.
I uninstalled (apt-get remove com.nito.nitotv) and it works again.

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:08pm

eeeh... installed right but... trying to find subtitles download feature. i dont have the same layout as the screenshot above... where is it?

Submitted by silcox on June 1, 2012 - 12:09pm

Ditto to the above.

I have a large collection of movies and would LOVE sort by release date.  I imagine that additonal sorts are not supported because the metadata is only fetched when needed and not cached for every title.

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:13pm

I am actually quite surprised your website says "Apple TV 3 update in the works! Order now and get access to both versions" when at present it doesnt even look like the atv3 can be jailbroken ever !

Just asking for trouble selling a product people might never be able to use !

Submitted by fouldsys on June 1, 2012 - 12:14pm

you guys should add the ability to adjust the audio sync. some of my videos have out of sync audio tracks and it would be nice to be able to adjust them like in VLC.

Submitted by leezy.1968 on June 1, 2012 - 12:17pm

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Once again a great seamless update!!!

Submitted by dmitchell624 on June 1, 2012 - 12:27pm

I am in that category of having purchased the software expecting a quick upgrade and keep getting lame responses back saying it is coming soon. SOON? What is soon?

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:30pm

OMG, after the successful update is my "Media" menu item completely gone - help please!

Submitted by leezy.1968 on June 1, 2012 - 12:32pm

thanks guys not updated yet but fingers crossed its all good....:)

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:34pm

XBMC does not start after the update. Hope this gets fixed soon.
Regards!

Submitted by Anon on June 1, 2012 - 12:35pm

Same here, bought it and I've been waiting for two months now.. so... WTF means SOON?

Submitted by timob.2208 on June 1, 2012 - 12:37pm

Great stuff guys!

Now the only wish I have is that .TS (Mpeg transportstream files) be played back without losing audio sync. Would that be possible?

Thanks!

Submitted by leezy.1968 on June 1, 2012 - 12:38pm

your just rude.stop going on at them its ready when its ready, if it wasnt for these guys you still have just a boring old atv, show a little respect for the work they do!!!
