    Default Color Composite not working :-(

    Hi there,

    I have an ATV (original 2.2 firmware) and wanted to connect the device to a non-HD TV. So I unlocked my ATV with the atv-usb-creator and installed nitoTV on it. After that, I ran the SmartInstaller (with 10.4.9combo & recovery in /Documents) and everything installed fine. Then I ran TVComposite installer within nitoTV and it also installed fine, but unfortunately the output is still B&W instead of color. I tried the above with original 2.2 firmware and also with the 3.0.1 without success. What did I do wrong? Is it because of 576i instead of 480i (I saw another guy has problems with 576i a few posts beyond)?

    Thanks for your help,

    Markus

    you need to actually run the kext and add it as a startup script or to rc.local. You can do all of this from nitoTV - > Settings -> Utilities - > kernel extension manager. from there you can just press play on the kext to load it, right click on it and it will give you the option to add it to rc.local OR to create/delete a startup script for it.

    Hi nito,

    thanks for your reply. BUT as you mentioned this is exactly how I did it - without success, screen is still B&W. If I run a terminal session on my ATV to manually load the TVComposite.kext the extension manager says it is already running... I have no clue what or where is the problem, because everything seemed to be installed correctly... Do you have a clue?

    Thanks, Markus

    Finally I found time to redo all of the installation... and now it works. I think it has something to do, that every step of the installation has to be correct at the first time.

    On the first try I forget to copy the recovery.dmg to /Documents. After copying I ran nitoTV_installer a second time. Everything seemed to be ok according to the install log, but after installing color_composite_pal and activating the kext, there was no color :-(

    When trying a second time I have everything copied before I started nitoTV installer. Then I installed color_composite_pal and activated the kext I had my AppleTV in color :-)

    So if anyone problems with color composite I recommend resetting the ATV to factory settings, update to the current OS release and redo every step of installation in the right order - that should help.

    Thanks to all, Markus
