UitzendingGemist Apple TV 2 app
This is a simple application allowing me to watch tv-shows from UitzendingGemist.nl without having to use AirPlay.
For this to work your Apple TV 2 has to be jailbroken and run Apple TV version 5.0.x / iOS 5.x.
UitzendingGemist.nl is the Dutch public broadcasting site, so it might not work abroad. However, the iOS Simulator layer, CocoaPods integration, and the Xcode 4 FRAppliance template are still of use to anyone looking into Apple TV 2 app development.
For now installation is done by a post-build script in Xcode, which assumes you have setup SSH public-key authentication. Otherwise copy the build to:
Components in this repo
Since the Apple TV 2 APIs are all private, the environment tends to vary between OS versions. At the time of writing I am running OS 5.0.1, which is iOS 5.1.1. It will probably work with 5.0.2 as well.
BackRow/Device: Dump of the BackRow framework headers
BackRow/Simulator: My own very thin BackRow API implementation on top of UIKit, asllowing me to develop/debug faster by using the iOS Simulator. This is implemented as I go, it’s goal is not to cover everything, but additions will be much appreciated. Currently it mainly implements ‘list menus’.
Gemist: The UitzendingGemist.nl application code.
Gemist-Sim: The target that runs the application code on the iOS Simulator.
Pods: Since the Apple TV 2 is based on iOS, I can use CocoaPods for third-party libraries without any problem.
Xcode/FRAppliance.xctemplate: A Xcode 4 template that adds a FRAppliance target.
