    Thanks, i was already looking for such an adapter, but have not resolved yet. Was thinking of putting a SataHDD maybe 750GB or more but an SSD would certainly even better respond.

    The one curious thing is that i have a .mkv made from a Bluray 1080p via makemkv that i put on a USB stick and play from there in ATV1 with OpenElec 6.0.1 (after i found that in OSMC it would mostly fail to playback from internal AND USB).

    The codec shown in makemkv is Mpeg4 AVC [email protected]

    and the mkv would yield around 50-60fps on a Pine64, around 50 on a Rock64, and only 6 fps on the Raspberry Pi2-B (with the 2codecs correctly enabled via serialnumber).

    on the ATV1 with BHCD915 it would be around 12-24 fps but playback would abort at around 6 minutes 12 seconds or so.

    the audio would continue but the picture would stall, which i found rather strange.

    would you please investigate this?


    Thank you very much for your help.

    EDIT: actually the Rock64 performs less with around 25Fps so probably the driver is not so evoluted with Rockchip for Libreelec yet; also the Rock64 is very unstable, no matter what software i use; probably i got a less stable unit. the PineA64 however is most stable and performs well - was impressed by it from the start.

    well, i have an raspberry1 model b and raspberry2 model b and both function well for video playback (but only after i purchased for both the codecs) but for playback also the atv seems still capable ... the atv seems to hold up well ... will do some more testing and then decide what to do with this legacy device. if the video output functions, i could use it with an older TV set with only Scart-port i presume.

    i would have another question as i am wondering if the broadcom bchd715 that installed is operative. playback 1080p but some files stutter in audio and frames are low - this on osmc and openelec.

    read that last openelec with crystalhd support is around version 4.2 but i got version 6 for appletv1 and frames for 1080p mkv is depending on codec around 25fps to 10-12fps so i wondered if i would be better off with an older version of openelec like version 3.0 or 4.0-4.2 (but could not find any files to download yet).

    Thank you very much.

    Hello ,

    i tried the OSMC and it functions well but sometimes a bit unstable so i was wondering if it would be possible to *backport* the included add-on PVR-iptvsimple for OpenElec on the AppleTV?

    'Thank you very much.

    hello , i found a quite stable solution (after even testing mac os server 10.6.8) by using the *nfs* option provided by kodi

    all i had to do was to use terminal in mac osx 10.6 according to this post

    NFS exports and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard – revolution34

    i just created this file


    and inserted something like

    /Users/test/Movies -maproot=test

    or other directions and after updating the whole as suggested by the article with

    sudo nfsd checkexports


    sudo nfsd update

    the nfs share was active after short time.

    the trick that did it on my computer was to leave away the last part *

    -network -mask

    it seems most stable and accessible also after changing from one raspberry to another etc., finally withouth the need to restart anything on the mac-serverside.

    don't know however if i created a big hole security-wise.

    today i tried again forcing everything smb in "services" and "libreelec" to smbv.1 and enabling "legacy security" seems have done the trick now windows 7 shares and mac smb shares are visisble; although on macmini sometimes for first visibility the filesharing option has to be un-ticked and then re-enabled to somehow restart the samba server. then the samba shares show up.

    maybe nfs share with macos server could be a better option?


    today i have settled to OSMC as i read that the image 2017-01-01 is still supporting the CrystalHD Card.

    Now it turned out that the image is Jarvis based and had PVR Iptvsimple and host of other PVR add-ons onboard -

    image seems stable - playback is fine - Add-on is loading and 854 channels found :)

    Happy - so for this AppleTV1 seems settled.

    sorry if i might have offended you;

    i used this repo longtime ago when i started using kodi; so it became bit habit of installing it on older kodi;

    actually i don't need it anymore - only some video add-on that are not included in kodi official repo are nice but most are no more responsive i found.

    the question was more related to pvr-iptvsimple, i don't think this is a pirate repo add-on.

    openelec 6 is based on kodi isengard if i am not mistaken, so i wonder if it would be possible somehow to install pvr-iptvsimple on the atv1 - i managed to install a crystalhd card, so theoretically it should also playback tv channel in HD quality.:)


    thank you very much for your OpenElec for ATV1.

    i am using version 6.0.1 and it functions very well.

    however, i would like to use also the iptv-simple add-on, but it would not be included?

    or am i wrong?

    i tried to install via Superrepo (Pvr-iptvsimple from Zip for Isengard) but that did not install either.

    Is there a Pvr-Iptvsimple add-on available for Openelec 6.0.1?

    I am a bit wary of trying with OSMC because overall i found OpenElec more stable whenever i tried.

    Hello ,

    i openend this issue here on github because i have problem with Channels loading from URL in PVR Iptvsimple - this has been seen on

    Raspberry Pi2 and Rock64 and A64 all running latest LibreElec (9.2.1, in the case of A64 Nightly (Matrix)).

    on the same device with OpenElec no such problem so i thought to discover the issue whether problem lies with PVR iptvsimple or with the older macmini eyetv-iptv server.

    but after having seen that channels load also correctly in kodi 18.6 on windows 7, i am prone to think the issue lies somewhere with implementation of PVR Iptvsimple on LibreElec?

    Channels not loading / EyeTV IPtv-server + libreelec client · Issue #372 · kodi-pvr/pvr.iptvsimple · GitHub

    Thank you!
