    Default [Chyme] AppleTV and OSX with sound?

    Is it possible to make the aTV play sound while booted on OSX? OSX is booted from an usb drive.

    I have connected a pair of eksternal usb-speakers and the actually show up in system preferences under audio. When I hit volume up/down on the keyboard, I get the vol up/down "animations" on the display. The speakers also play the "plopp" sound when I adjust the volume.

    However, neither Quicktime or iTunes will play any sound... iTunes won't start to play the file at all.

    So is sound possible?

    Default Looking for updates on sound under osX on appletv

    Got the hack installed and working. no sound. got frontrow running and ibridge bay from russound to control itunes and frontrow thru the whole house audio system but no sound output. I even tried connecting a few usb audio outputs but they don't appear in the Sound control panel so I'm confused.

    A few newbie questions:

    Would it make sense to image the original drive then install a full version of OSx over the Apple TV's OS? I would imagine that I may have to patch the cloned OS first then reapply the kernal and Boot.efi etc. Any ideas?

    Could we just find the support moduals to add to the new OS?

    Any idea?

    Thanks

    If it was that simple, i beileive a solution would be posted somewhere on the net....For now i think its best to wait until the experts come up with a solution....Video acceleration is another bigy, as video's will not play in OSX smoothly...well nothing is smooth really...but I think OS speed is quite good....Once video is fixed it will feel like a much quicker and smoother OS. OSX finds the audio and video hardware, so fingers crossed its just a software mod needed, ie kexts/terminal work or a patch...

    Thumbs up thanks for the reply

    really - hoping for some cool hacks in the future
    I was surprised that the USB interface works - front row expired and will not start - I'm not sure how I got it to workin in the first place and run video but I think it was a product of the iBridge Bay software toggling Back Row into opening it but I can not get it to do that again so....
    Off to either a. find a hack to enable usb audio and mass storage or
    b. figure out how to add the apps within appletv's OS - will post my findings

    AppleTV without sound is agonizingly boring

    Default no sound at all?

    I'm surprised people are hacking them then, or was this rectified? Is there still no sound out?

    I really just want the damn thing to work as an AppleTV, but the hacking has been so annoying and tedious that I'd rather deal with OSX, so I was going to just install that.

    in my personal opinion the atv works like absolute garbage running os x and if that is your goal with it and you arent happy with it just normally being hacked then you probably wont ever really be happy with it.
