Does this work with current nightlies? Tried it with my ATV2, HTTP says connected but JSON RPC shows disconnected. Ports dont have to be open, all is behind the same router. Tried to open ports also, but without success. I can control XBMC with the Remote Functions, but i dont see my movies/tvshows at all. Tried to force sync, but nothing happened. I use a shared mySQL connection, might that be the issue?

Yes. There is a problem witch chars with ppl that use the incorrect Chartypes in MySQL we have found a work around for this. You should find it fixed in the latest update.

I can tell you that we use The PVR Build OPK-46 and we have no problems with it.

We just rejected a update Form apple because the JSON interface just changed again now we actually need to support 3 versions of XBMC v10.1 V11 < 04/09/2011 V11 > 04/09/2011.
And I have a small announcement to make we are looking for ppl that would help us test our new app Witch is a remote for PLEX with transcoding (you can watch all your movies on iPad and download them to the device) the beta testing release will be this friday.

After some long hours of searching I finally found an older version of the iOS XBMC nightlies that I was recommended to downgrade to. I now run the 2011-08-27 nightly (instead of 2011-09-05) on my ATV2 in hopes of getting proper JSON functionality to get my libraries to show up. Problem was the "official" page for nightlies only keep the latest 10 days or so and I since I was told to get a nightly from before september I was out of luck. I searched ALOT of unofficial sites and finally found what seems to be a good pre-september build over here in case someone else needs to downgrade: http://xctechs.info/files/latest_082711_atv2.deb
This is what happened...
0. I downgraded XBMC to the 110827 build.
1. I uninstalled Constellation and reinstalled, 1.42, added my host and waited...
2. As soon as the lights turned green, takes like 30 secs for JSON to light up, the app crashed.
3. I restarted the app and it instantly crashed again.
4. I restarted again and now the app didn't crash... Dashboard shows 0 items in all categories. I sat idle and waited for 5 mins but no updates on Dashboard.
5. I click the movie library and YES - it's there! It's in the process of updating I suppose. When returning to the dashboard it reports correct number of items in all categories!
WeeEEEeEEeeeEEe! I'm so happy now (and a paying user) ! I understand you are all working hard and it doesn't become any easier when XBMC nightlies constantly changes the "rules" of how to communicate. I can only hope for an active community around the Constellation app and an active Development team to continue supporting changes in XBMC.
I would suggest some sort of "newbie" forum though that CLEARLY states what version of XBMC nightlies that are fully supported so that people don't have to go through all the problems I did Also, I suggest implementing some sort of progress indicator when the library is updating - like for the first time after installing the app.
Again, Great App - Keep up the good work!

PelleBoA Wrote:Hello again,
Sadly I'm not sure where to find older iOS builds, I guess your best bet might be to make a post in the iOS part of the forum requesting a copy from another user, but then you'll have to trust they didn't screw with it (not that most members would).
Sorry for the useless post, I just got out of the hospital and my head is a bit loopy...
@Everyone Above: I will still attempt to get at least some of the Wiki stuff I mentioned done today, but don't count on a link until tomorrow or the next day just in case... Doc said once these pills 'kick in' I may be out for a day or so... (much needed, albeit forced sleep).

I just want to add that I still experiance random crashes when browsing my library... or when doing nothing at all for that matter. Running a nightly from 2011-08.27.
Unfortunately sometimes after these crashes my library is... gone. Mostly it's just the movie library that gets wiped, going from 1200 items down to 0 on the dashboard and showing up completely empty when entering it. I read somewhere about the lack of support for foreign characters, could this have something to do with it? Perhaps Constellation is crashing when hitting a foreign movie? What are the "symptoms" regarding foreign characters? As of now the only way of getting back my libraries (for a short while) is uninstalling and reinstalling.
Also I have a question. When starting the app - does it always perform some sort of sync? Or is it just when adding a new host? What I'm getting at is - when the app crashes and I restart it - do I have to manually refresh my library?
If so which one of the three options should I use? And what's the difference between them? An explanation of the below sync methods and their differance would be great!
1. Hosts -> Manage -> Update Video Library
2. Inside the library -> "Pull down to Sync"
3. Options -> "Resync local data" in combination with Remove database and flush images.
A second question is regarding images. Are they not downloaded until I first view them? It seams I have to slowly browse through all my 1200+ movie library to have the images downloaded. Is this correct? No way of forcing a complete sync including the download of all images?
Again, keep up the good work, I'll keep playing around and testing this app out

For ATV2 users I can recommend the version of Sep. 03. You will find this release on some of the official xbmc nightly mirrors. Everything works so far, at least if you do not filter your movie database by label.
So finally I went PRO.

Couldn't you make it a prerequisite that if you are using pre Eden that you have to have build 04/09/11 and above installed, that way we could install the newer nightly build without trouble

m0v1em4n Wrote:Hi Dawid,Hi,
Yes I Could but that's the easy way I don't won't to force ppl to update if they don't won't to.
We are making a system for this kind of problems That is if happens again we can push a update in 5s to all the installations

Thanks! I'll definately try the september 3 nightly for iOs if I can find it... I havn't so far. If you can post a link - or even mail it to me I would be very greatful.
Interesting note you said about filtering by label... why would that be a problem? I *ONLY* filter by label... could that be a reason for my problems?

I don't think so. The problem with the label filtering is rare and we cannot reproduce it. But we will try to make some fixes... Users report that thumbnails are missing. but the app works fine.
