    At 7:45PM PST, the AppleTV OS successfully booted on a PC. There are still a couple setbacks (controlling it, ethernet, etc.) but it does in fact boot.

    Stripped down 10.4.8 install (Intel optimized)
    Boot time after BIOS: 15 seconds

    Don't forget to run Quartz Debug (found in Dev Tools) one time to enable Core Image and Quartz Extreme support.
    (Don't know why, it is disabled by default on AppleTV OS)

    Call me crazy but i have an idea.

    how about creating a boolean app that remains resident and check, let's say, every 10 sec, if Front Row is resident in memory and if a picture 1.png does exist on the desktop folder.

    That would means we have used the Apple Shift 3 shortkey to quit Front Row.

    If yes, then start the quitFR.app and then delete the picture 1.png

    Don't blame me, i haven't slept for hours.

    EDIT : I can 100% confirm that Apple Shift 3 is running in the background when Front Row is resident, i can see (in ssh) the picture 1.png to appear in the desktop folder.

    Now go inside /System/Library/CoreServices/ and replace the old Front Row by this new moded.

    Repair permissions and reboot.

    You can now use the Apple Remote menu button to call the AppleTV's Front Row !

    Got to find a way to quit it without ssh/killing the Front Row process from another computer.
    o,k. could this be more step by step for us lesser mortals! what contents folder do you need to nav to (as there are about 40) and if this has been done why can this not be turned into a stand alone app. (click icon and it loads)

    by the way when it comes to quitting try this ou (i would but i cannot get it working on my mac mini at the mo)

    2 user accounts
    normal and AppTV
    app tv has ATVOS on as finder
    to quit use the key command for log out or switch users

    will this work?
    people make mistakes, isnt that right bill...

    Default quit appletv when running in os x install.

    Install "Home Zone" for OSX, This software supports triggers whcih can be activated via bluetooth or wifi events. I use an old cell phone, and when it detects it it runs an apple script whcih quits apple tv. hope this helps

    p
    p.s this may work for the apple tv os, but you might need to manually copy over Home Zone prefs etc

    Something tells me that if SSH isn't doing the trick, a bluetooth cellphone sure as shit ain't gonna do anything.
