@Memphiz I was also having the issue that the GUI was rotated 90 degrees on my Samsung 50" Plasma. I followed XBMCOWNER's steps and can confirm this has also fixed the issue for me. Thanks for all the hard work you're putting in Memphiz and also XNMCOWNER for you tip....spot on!
Could the perceived randomness of the issue relate to users that have 720 displays (working) and 1080 (rotated)? Is it worth having some users that its worked for out the box confirming whether they have 720 screens or maybe non-Samsung to see if there's a pattern?

@Chapaeff33: that's what I got after entering just that code. I got the following error message:
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Just a quick note to say thank you everyone involved in making this work with IOS 5.1 so very quickly I am sure there are many of us who are lost without our ATV2 powered XBMC


RE: iOS 5.1 & XBMC - Doofry - 2012-04-01 23:09

Guys just a quick update. I just swapped out my 4.4.4 ATV for my now working 5.1 one on my main TV. Obviously tether booted it. Found that it was back to portrait mode again. I eddited the GUI config file again and could see that the settings had been updated back to 720. Worked fine once I'd changed it but just a heads up that this seems to get updated after a full reboot. Was going to change the permissions to try and stop t but it's quick enough to change if I need to again.


RE: iOS 5.1 & XBMC - Memphiz - 2012-04-01 23:12

So i think i've got a new approach which should work for all of you. It doesn't need any diddle with guisettings.xml (and i'm not sure why this solved the issue). Will have to wait for davilla who kindly borrows his dropbox traffic for this.


RE: iOS 5.1 & XBMC - happyendin21 - 2012-04-01 23:53

I have the xbmc.log of me starting xbmc and exiting xbmc. I was unable to install syslogd using apt-get install syslogd i received this
E: Type '.deb' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.

If I could resolve this i would post the syslog too but for now only xbmc.log

Thanks again.
