Is your Apple TV freezing when you launch Boxee? Do you see a quick flash of the Apple logo and then just a blank “black screen“?
You aren’t alone. If you were one of the early Boxee beta/alpha testers, you might have some files leftover from an old install. Don’t even bother reinstalling Boxee or trying a factory restore on your Apple TV. These won’t solve your Boxee problems. You need to remove the old user data files using a SSH client.
In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to remove these old files and return your Boxee software to normal functionality on your Apple TV.
