Now Choose your Apple TV 2 from the Drop down menu. ( Note that you must connect your Apple TV and PC to same internet connection otherwise it may show up over here in the drop down menu)


Now click on the install NitoTV Button. It may ask you for password; the default password is “frontrow” if you already haven’t changed! ( You have to be patience cause it can take up to 8 to 10 minutes)


After the step 4 completes you will notice that your device will reboot and a green check showing you that NitoTV has been installed on your device.

    I have followed the steps — NitoTV installed successfully and shows on the AppleTV springboard — I received a confirmation that XBMC was installed successfully, however the XBMC icon does not appear on the springboard? — Suggestions or solutions please.

      I have the same problem. Now neither will remove, and Nito TV will not update any packages or install packages. I get an error saying that I need to manually run dpkg–Config– (then the rest is cut off) HELP!
