Description

mythfronend works great on an Apple TV, but only for 5 minutes at a time. The Apple TV OS reboots after 5 minutes since mythfrontend requires killing the Finder, which ordinarily provides a "heartbeat" to the system (riptide and watchdog processes).

Mythfrontend for Mac OS X (Apple TV is 10.4.8, I think), should implement a periodic call (e.g. every 58 sec, like the Finder would) to com.apple.riptide.heartbeat. See http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Watchdog for details.
