Thanks for the replies.
I read a bit more on the subject after I posted and ran updateBeGone from within NitoTV, and XBMC seems to be working well again.
I already had the Apple Update feature disabled, so hopefully these together do the trick.

Maybe I should start a new thread, but now I'm having another issue.
XBMC crashes whenever I try to scrape my movie collection thru uPnP.
Anyone successful in adding titles to the library via this method?

Hey Coop.
When I try to use SMP it always asks for a username and password.
I have never set any usernames or passwords on my desktop, so this step always stumps me.
It would be nice to have all the artwork and media information that a movie scrape provides, but it's really not vital.
UPnP just streams so well for me. I've read of some others experiencing issues with quality using SMP, so that too has kept me from using it.

Having said that, the XBMC crashing came back last night, so I will have to figure out how to SSH into the ATV2 to deal with the updating issues. Apparently UpdateBeGone didn't work as well as I thought.

You have to enable the guest account on your pc and make sure it has access to your video files, this will give you a password free set up. I can't remember if you have to do anything other than that but you should check to see it only has access to your local network and not the internet.

I'm totally new to anything related to apple tv.

My 360 that I use as a media extender is about to kick the bucket. When you jailbreak the ATV2 (I would love to have XBMC again), do you still have the ability to use Netflix?

Yes, Netflix still appears under "Internet" in the ATV2 main menu.
Completely seperate from XBMC.

thanks for the info. last question, any word on if Boxee will ever be done on the new ATV?

I'm tryng to decide between the two. They way boxee presents local files is much more user friendly for my family. I like the ATV2 smaller profile and the money saved

How do I get XBMC on my ATV2?

I am looking at the XBMC instructions and put the stuff into my terminal and nothing happens. I don't even get to the part that it asks me for a password...

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title..._on_Apple_TV_2

It says installing from Cydia or Eden? What are these? The only thing I have done up to now is jailbreak with seasonPass.

Can someone help me please?!

Since you mentioned Terminal, I assume you are using a Mac.

To get XBMC on your ATV2, you need to ssh into the ATV2. The command is
Code:
ssh [email protected] ipaddress
You should be asked for a password. It is alpine. A warning message should appear asking you to add the IP to your RSA account. Accept the warning.

Then, enter these commands in order:

Code:
apt-get install wget
Code:
wget -O- http://apt.awkwardtv.org/awkwardtv.pub | apt-key add -
Code:
echo "deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org/ stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list
Code:
echo "deb http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2 ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list
Code:
apt-get update
Code:
apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
Code:
reboot
You should then have the Eden build of XBMC on your ATV2
