    Default Please Help: ATV OS Upgrade broke Apple Remote

    Hi,

    I had a perfectly working ATV with OS 2.2 patched with atvusbcreator, nitoTV, ....

    then I've upgraded to 2.4 by sftp'ing the 2.4 dmg into Upgrades and running osupgrade

    now my ATV no longer responds to the white Apple Remote

    the light on the ATV flashes when I press a button and I can even pair and unpair (tried over a dozen times) using Menu+<< and Menu+>> but otherwise it wont react to any button or menu press for navigation

    the IPhone Remote App still works fine

    tried again with upgrading to 2.4 with and without patchstick - no go
    even after an osupgrade to 3.0 still the same

    what am I missing ?

    any ideas please ?

    I really dont want to do a factory reset and wipe all my data - plus without the remote working I dont even know how to do one.

    ssh work fine so repair or debugging shouldnt be a problem

    FYI

    I've got it fixed with help from another forum

    basically by going from 2.2 to 2.4 with just the OS dmg I was missing the IR controller firmware upgrade

    here's what made my remote work again:

    wget http://mesu.apple.com/data/IR/061-30...erUpdaterTool2
    wget http://mesu.apple.com/data/IR/694-55...-0x0312.irrxfw
    chmod a+x IRReceiverUpdaterTool2
    ./IRReceiverUpdaterTool2 irrxfw-0x0312.irrxfw

    I had a similar issue after upgrading to ATV 3.0; my white remote did not work and I thought my ATV was frozen (on the Movies menu). Then I decided to give my Remote app a try and it was working.

    So, I navigated to the remote settings and "unpaired" the remotes; this re-enabled my white remote as well as my Logitech Harmony universal remote to work with ATV. I would have never figured this out if I didn't have the Remote app installed on my iPod Touch.
