XBMC compiled with Crystal HD support is now available from unofficial nightly builds

TheQuestor from xbmc forums has announced that his xbmc for osx nightly builds now includes crystal hd support!

Forum post found here.
And downloads found here.

You will still need to compile, or download a precompiled version from somewhere, crystal hd lib and kext to get it working. Xbmc will detect the presence of said lib/kext and enable crystalhd rendering as an option if found.

Follow this post from the xbmc forum on how to use the nightly build together with the atv-xbmc-launcher. You will have to install the crystal hd lib/kext as well to enable the crystalhd rendering option from within xbmc.

Enjoy Apple TV with 1080p support :)

Customizing keymap on Mac OS X

Had enough of that f*** up macbook keyboard and the stupid locations of e.x. pipe, backslash? At least us europeans have this problem. Pipe is Alt-7, Backslash is Shift-Alt-7 etc++.
Now its time to get this shit fixed once and for all.
Download Ukelele: http://scripts.sil.org/ukelele

Install..bladdiblah..Copy of another keyboard layout. Choose your own locale from the .dmg.
Edit your prefs and put the .keylayout in ~/Library/Keyboard Layouts/
Then logout and login. Go System Preferences, International, Input Menu.
Find your layout in the list, mark it, and also mark Show input menu in menu bar.
Select your keyboard layout from the menu bar right by your clock. Boom your new layout is installed :)

For all you norwegian hookers who wants just pipe where it should be and the backslash where it should be, download this keymap: norgeextendedpipe.keylayout
