AppleTV (BackRow) on a G4 PPC MAC possible??
is it somehow possible to install the AppleTV system or BackRow (CRiMSoN made it possible) on an older MAC with a G4 PPC? I have an Mac Mini and a Powerbook and would like to use them as Media centers. Maybe with the Apple Remote emulator (http://www.brandon-holland.com/irkeyboardemu.html) I could control it with the ATI Remote Wonder.
You will not be able to do it until you get the AppleTV source code (Finder.app, Backrow.framework and iPhotoAccess.framework) to compile it to UB or PowerPC.
The only chance for you is to:
1- try to install/mod Leopard's (10.5) Frontrow, which is the same UI as AppleTV but with DVD support (fr.appliance).
It is Universal Binary, so i don't see a problem to make it work on PPC.
2- wait until October 07 for Leopard release to install on your G4 and use its built-in Frontrow.
