XBMC Crashes a lot. - patres14 - 2012-05-03 19:11
I've got two issues.
Lets start with the first one, when i am in XBMC changing some settings, like skin option, addons, or even toggle between menu items, XBMC will reboot the ATV2 completly and get me back to the main atv 2 menu. This happens 8 out of 10 times.
So you can imaging my frustration. I can't even edit skin settings and then see how it looks like because it reboots..!!
Second one is that a MKV movie does not play smoothly.I've got the media info right here:
Here is also the rest of the info which is needed:
Darwin Apple-TV 11.0.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.0.0: Thu Feb 10 21:46:56 PST 2011; root:xnu-1735.46~2/RELEASE_ARM_S5L8930X AppleTV2,1 arm K66AP Darwin
OS version: 5.0.1 (9A405I)
S/W version:4.4.3 (3323)
XBMC 11.0 Git:20120331-ebfd899 (compiled: april 1 2012)
thanks a lot

Well, I'm far from an expert, but a couple things:
1. Your advancesetting.xml file is not being loaded. Not sure what's in there, but it's not being used:
ERROR: Error loading special://profile/advancedsettings.xml, Line 2
Error reading end tag
You can post the contents if you need help formatting it correctly.
2. Is this thumbnail extraction?
GetPicture - VTBDecoderDecode dts(-4503599627370496.000000), pts(254921000.000000), old_pts(315607000.000000)
You should make sure this setting is off. XBMC > Settings > Video > File and deselect 'generate thumbnails'
You should check all the options listed in the Wiki for choppiness/crashing:
There also seems to be a lot of skin errors - which skin are you using?

Have you made changes to your advancedsettings file? It looks like it might be missing something. You might try and remove your advancedsettings file and troubleshoot without it.

You're also getting an error regarding the commoncache.db. But I'm not sure if that's also related to the advancedsettings problem. You can delete the commoncache.db file as well, and see if that fixes anything. It will be automatically recreated on reboot. Many other people have had issues related to that.

Also... what skin are you currently using? There's lots of skin related errors and warnings in your log. If it won't let you switch skins without crashing, you might have to manually edit your guisettings(~/XBMC/userdata/guisettings.xml) file to change your skin back to default Confluence. I've seen some installs that get stuck on a broken skin, requiring that.
Another thing.... your log file includes your admin credentials for accessing your SMB shares. You may want to remove that info from your log file....
Hope that helps a little..

The skin i am using is Confluence-MOD, but it happens with all skins.
1. This is in my xml:
2. Only option i can find under XBMC > Settings > Video > i see no FILE, option
I read and tried al those settings already, no luck.

How can i go back to the default skin settings? Is it just to remove the guisettings.xml?
I also changed the logfile, thnx for pointing that out to me.
RE: XBMC Crashes a lot. - DLeavy - 2012-05-03 20:19
yes, just remove guisettings and that will reset you back to Confluence.
You're missing the ">" on </cachemembuffersize for your advancedsettings.xml
RE: XBMC Crashes a lot. - crawl - 2012-05-03 20:23
If you don't want to lose some of your current settings, then transfer the guisettings.xml file to your desktop, open it in an editor, and look for the "lookandfeel" section:
Change it to match the above.

Ok, i deleted the guisettings.xml file, and it came back to the default confluence skin.
I will keep you posted if anything happens.
About movies not playing smootly i've discoverd this:
I went to a friend with my ATV 2 and hooked it up to his wired network, whicj i use at home aswell, and took the movies with me which caused issues,
they all played perfectly at his place, so i came to the conclusion it could be a netwok issue at my place.
I tried a differnt UTP cable from the switch to the ATV2, same issue, but then i saw on the switch that the light is orange instead of green, which means its connected with 10mb and not the full 100 mb. My other pc is also on that switch and that light is green.
How can i check or even change if the ATV2 is using 10 mn instead of the full 100mb.??

After changing some settings, like disable rss feed, went to main menu try to open videos, crash into main ATV menu.

Could it be an option to re-jailbreak?
