Apple TV v2.3.1 update yanks Boxee

by Volker Weber

Apple have released a new update for the Apple TV, version 2.3.1, and users have discovered that it unceremoniously dumps the unofficial Boxee plugin from their set-top box.

I have nailed down mine at 2.1 and, just to make sure, set the update server address to localhost. No more updates to my box. It ist working just nicely.

You only have to worry about it if you already have SSH access. If you do, just edit /etc/hosts.

Thanks. I will google for the server addresses.

Use the handy search field in the top right corner. It's all there.
