    I hear what @pioneer is saying and agree. Sound is pretty fundamental to using the ATV as home theater setup, a mac, or even a server. So...

    Given that 10.5.5 seems impossible to download at the moment (I'm willing to host but don't have it), what is the easiest way to upgrade my ATV1 to OS X (any version) such that analog audio works?

    Does anyone have a version of OS X running on an ATV1 with analog audio working that they are willing to explain how they got it to work?

    Thank you in advance.

    I may start over again and build my own based on the documentation out there. I think I have a disk for 10.5.2 .

    I have been reading this thread from the top, and there is something that i would like to know that is non refered in here. Some have complained that it takes a little heat, but i would like to know what temperatures are we talking about, it does not have to be exactly but something near it. And another thing, i intend to change the HDD inside de ATV to a larger one, but i'm keeping in mind the possibility of an external to, the only thing that is stil holding me on is the fact, does the hdd inside takes much more hot than an external one that it makes the opcion of an external more reliable or the diferençe is not that great? Im kinda worrind with this cause where i live in summer it realllly gets HOT LIKE HELL...

    I have 10.5.4 and would be interested in doing this with you. Again, would rather just find the 10.5.5 image out there somewhere, but also interested in getting a nicely working ATV1. Won't have a lot of time in the near future, but happy to help if I can.

    Hey Everyone,

    I know this thread is old, but I tried to use the 10.5.8 V2 image yesterday and all I got was a flashing "?" on my screen above an image of the Apple TV. I never used a Mac before and I'm new to all this. Maybe I did it wrong. Here are my steps. I put an old used drive in a USB enclosure. I was using this drive with my Windows laptop to store backups so I know the drive works. It was formatted Fat32 for Windows. I then connected the enclosure to my friend's Mac. Then I formatted the external hard drive using disk utility as 1 partition and as GUID. I then used Carbon Copy Cloner to restore the image onto the external hard drive. I started up Carbon Copy Cloner and selected restore from image and selected the image. I then selected the external drive as the destination drive. I also selected the option to erase anything on the destination drive that does not match the source drive (the image in this case), was this the correct thing to do? When the image finished restoring, I unmounted the external drive and disconnected it from the Mac. I took the drive out of the USB enclosure and put it into my Apple TV. I plugged in the Apple TV and the yellow light flashed a while (no video while this was happening) and then the image of the Apple TV came on the screen with a "?" blinking above it. Did I miss a step? Can anyone who got it working explain exactly how to format the drive and how to use Carbon Copy Cloner to restore the image? Did I do it right? If so, can it be the type of disk that I used? Any explanations?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    If I had to guess, I think you missed the step in which you change the partition UID to some long string of numbers/letters. I think the ATV1 boots from a partition with a particular ID and you didn't set yours up correctly. I think you have to do it after you copy everything over. There is a page on this site that talks about booting from USB that has more details.

    I thought that was only if you were booting using a USB device. I'm booting straight from an internal hard drive. I thought all I had to do was restore the image onto the hard drive and boot from it. So are you saying I have to change the UID on the internal hard drive as well?

    Thanks for the reply

    I'm not an expert, and haven't tried an internal drive. Do the instructions about an internal drive start with the existing internal drive or do they involve reformatting? Maybe if they use the existing drive (no reformat or partitioning) they don't have to worry about the UID.

    Many years ago I put a bigger drive into my ATV1 following instructions out there. But that was for ATV1 OS, not 10.5.x. You could review those instructions for hints/tips.

    Sorry, might be at the edge of my knowledge.

    From what I'm reading on this forum, many people have used a new drive (larger than the one that comes with the Apple TV). To me it looks like they just restored the image onto the hard drive and everything worked fine. I'll try treating the new drive as a USB stick and change the partition UID. Thanks for the help.

    Does anyone still have the optimised 10.5.8 OSX image, demonoid seems to be down for a while.
    I tried to download the vanilla image, but the torrent stopped at 52% … .
