    Default How To Change Apple TV 2G Font
    Its really very simple!! The same as doing it in iOS 4.0+

    -SSH into your Apple TV 2G (I use WinSCP)
    -Navigate to System/Library/Fonts/Cache
    -Download the font of you choice(iphoneruler dot net has a bunch that are ready for iOS 4.0+)
    -Copy all the files from the folder you got from iphoneruler into the above listed directory.
    -Reboot the Apple TV and you should be good to go.

    Keep in mind that the font has to have been ported to work with iOS 4.0 and above. Here is a list of the font names and file extensions that I copied over.

    Helvetica.ttc
    HelveticaNeue.ttc
    LockClock.ttf
    MarkerFeltThin.ttf
    PhoneKeyCaps.ttf
    PhonepadTwo.ttf


    I just did this like 20mins ago so I haven't had much time to see if all of the fonts have changes, but so far it looks like it works just as good as on my iPod Touch 4G.

    Wish there was a way to do screen shots, I guess I'll have to try and take a pic and post it.

    Let me know how this works for you all.
