OPERATION ATV: Beta on the Launcher
I will be updating this thread periodically...
With the new patchstick install vs. the Keith/Jim script install, there are some minor differences. To help all of us (users/mods/Boxee Team) I am going to offer this advice:
Please Purge your old Boxee build and UserData before you run the new Launcher Version Boxee Install.
WARNING: Running the below commands will purge your Boxee DB, user info, etc. from your ATV. You will need to re-index your files and re-enter your user info once you install the new Boxee Beta build.
SSH into your ATV and then simply run the below commands, one at a time:
This should help alleviate the myriad errors people are getting once they install the new Beta build.
sudo rm -rf ~/Applications/Boxee.app
sudo rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/BOXEE

Updating the Launcher and Installing Boxee...
On the ATV Menu:
Launcher > Downloads > Launcher 3.2.3
Once that updates, go here:
Launcher > Downloads > Boxee Beta x.x.xx.xxxxx where the x's indicate the current version Boxee.
Once that process is done, you should be able to use Boxee by Selecting:
Launcher > Boxee
