@orangejedi829, I tried downloading 10.5.5-joncgde2.dlc via JDownloader and found that parts 002 and 003 were missing so the whole thing is useless at the moment. Does anyone have 10.5.5-joncgde2.002.dmgpart and 10.5.5-joncgde2.003.dmgpart that I can get off them so that I can try and complete my ATV/Leopard experiment? I have the ATV HDD out and mounted on my Mac ready to go but can't use the disk image, very frustrating.
Disk Utility reports after verification of the DMG that 022 is also missing or corrupt so if anyone can supply 002, 003 and also 10.5.5-joncgde2.022.dmgpart that would be great.
Any help with this greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: No luck with the 10.5.5 DLC file so I downloaded the 10.5.8 optimised v2 DMG and (except for audio) all working just fine. I am listening to iTunes right now but I have the analog PCM#0 going into the CD input on my old stereo and it's not what you'd call loud! But it works if I turn all the Mac volumes up to full and the stereo to 3/4 the way round, normally this would blow the speakers but in this case it sounds like listening to someone's stereo in the garden next door! But I can hear it.
The OS X performance is slow and most mouse actions have a 4-5 second lag before actioning so I may try and remove some core apps as suggested in an earlier post and see what that does.
As for keyboard and mouse I've installed 'Mobile Mouse Pro' app on my iPhone and the Mobile Mouse server on the ATV so I can use the iPhone as a touch pad and keyboard, not ideal but it works well.
Thanks Jon it's an interesting little experiment, not sure if it's a goer yet due to the really low volume but I'll keep trying.
