    Default Nito TV Help

    Can you run and install Nito TV on an Apple TV 3.0.2 without having the "Launcher" or "Software" menu bars?

    I don't won't Boxee and XBMC etc on my Apple TV, I just want to be able to add an external HDD via the USB port to play files etc

    If you dont want softwaremenu or launcher installed you dont need them to be. if you already have nitoTV installed then you can just delete any third party plugins you dont want (i wouldnt recommend deleting any of apples frappliances, i would just move them or hide them with softwaremenu or overflow)

    Code:
    ssh -1 frontrow@appletv.local (password is frontrow)
    sudo mount -uw /
    cd /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/PlugIns/
    sudo rm -rf SoftwareMenu.frappliance
    sudo rm -rf XBMCLauncher.frappliance
    sudo mount -ur /
    killall Finder

    Default Aspect ratio

    I'm using my AppleTV 3.0.2 and nitoTV 0.8.8 with an 16:9 CRT-Television set via analog component out (YPbPr, SDTV).

    For that, I have to set the MPlayer argument

    -monitoraspect
    16:9

    for a correct aspect ratio.
    It works fine, when I'm playing video files.

    But this setting seems not to work in DVD Playback.
    The videos are still compressed in the height.

    There are no problems with the aspect ratio in QuickTime-Mode at all.

    What can I do?

    ----------------
    Edit: A Workaround could be the aspect ratio function of the TV set (Wide, Zoom, 14:9, 4:3, Smart). It works, but I have to set the aspect ratio manually every time when I'm watching DVDs.

    I also have EyeTV 3.0.3 running on ATV. The EyeTV window is also compressed in the height, as in the case of DVD Playback. It seems that QuickTime uses a special graphic mode, different from ordinary windows.

    dvdplayback is totally unrelated to mplayer after you have run the smart installer. it is handled through apples framework and its sizing is completely independent of every other facet of appletv media playback. some tv's (especially older hd tvs) report some very bizarre information back on the height and width of the tv which throws off our screen sizing calculations. unfortunately theres no really much either graham or i can do about it, sorry i dont have better news for you.
