Step 3: Find your Wireless Internet connection on the list. Wired Ethernet users can skip this step.

Step 5: Choose the “No Thanks” option when prompted to “Share Information with Apple.”
Step 6: Press the “MENU” button on your Remote Control to Skip the “Activating” or “Setting date and time” message.
Step 7: Go to the “Settings” menu and then choose the “Audio & Video” option, not the “General” option yet.
Step 8: Change the “Audio Output” field to the “16 bit” setting.
Step 9: Press the “MENU” button on your Remote Control to go back one level, then navigate to the “General” menu under “Settings.”
Step 10: Choose the “About” menu option, and write down the numbers listed under the “IP Address” heading, ignoring the DHCP prefix.
Step 11: On your Mac Computer, navigate to the “Launchpad” or “Applications” icon on your Dock menu bar.
Step 12: Open the “Utilities” menu.
Step 13: Launch the “Terminal” application.
Step 14: Type the Following Command into the Terminal window, then press Enter.

Step 15: Type “yes” (without quotations) then press Enter when asked whether you want to continue connecting to the device.
Step 16: Type “alpine” (without quotations) when asked to enter your password, then press Enter. The text won’t be displayed as you type, this is normal at this stage.
