No wired ethernet! What'd I do wrong?
The ATV->OS X conversion worked great the first time. A bit of an overscan problem with my Sony Bravia, but on a regular HDMI monitor you simply cannot tell it's not a real Mac.
Anyway, I was trying to get the wired ethernet going - and it doesn't show in the network config!. Nada. Airport, yes, and it works fine, but no wired connection at all. I haven't run across any other mentions of this problem, so it's got to be something I did to it.
Found a clue:
Apparently the OS install put something wrong in the prefs for 'en0'. I somehow cannot get to this file (the folder is aliased) on the original aTV drive image. From somebody with both working Airport and hardwire networks, I need you to check the following snippet from the .plist file above:
I have a hunch at least the "IOService:" definition is different. I also suspect that "IOMACAddress" was pulled from the system that did the actual OS build.

Reason: More info.
Never mind. I found the solution in the external USB procedure:
Get ethernet working with PCGenRTL8139Ethernet 1.2.0
1. Download http://www.sendspace.com/file/4i62j1
2. Install per the instructions in the file
(Note: This is needed to get either the built-in Ethernet to work or the Airport. This doesn't break Ethernet support for an Intel Core Duo iMac - not sure about others.)
