Couple of things sport. Debug log says that you have NO favourites set, so there is little point looking at your favourites. If you try the following it may help. Get out of the favourites screen by pressing 'menu' button when you get the "view as" dialog. Now go straight back in, do you still have a problem or is it now sorted? I have used this in the past and it always seems to help (at least it did the other day while I was playing with the YouTube script).
As to the file that you need for the favourites fix, it is DialogFavorites.xml but really it would be better to grab the skin thru the Passion repo and just get the skin as it's maker (me) intended.
Just a side note. There have been a number of changes in the XBMC skin engine that changed from 10.0-7 and 10.0-8 and on. Biggest change is that there is only 'library mode' now (file mode is gone for good), so maybe some of the issues you are seeing could relate to this. I will release the skin in three versions XBox, Dharma and pre-Eden, but the svn is still the Dharma version (will change to pre-Eden right after formal v1.1.1 release).
Will keep checking thru your log file to see if there is any other issues, but at this stage that is all that I have found.
New themes for the skin - wyrm - 2011-07-01 07:04
Just a quick note about the skin and the pending release. Due to changes brought about by a problem with the volume level dialog I have had to re-upload some of the themes. To make sure you have the latest theme if you are using anything other than the default please follow these directions:
1. in system menu select the 'install theme' menu item
2. in the dialog that comes up scroll down to 'download themes' and select.
(do NOT just select your current theme from list or you will use the old theme)
3. Now when you see the required theme in the dialog select that and the 'new' corrected theme will download.
4. go into 'appearance' setting menu and select the just downloaded theme and you should now have the corrected theme.
Now as a added bonus I have uploaded two (2) new themes to my googlecode page, so including the default theme there are now six (6) themes. Comments welcome, but I prefer using the default theme, so artistic comments (or lack there of) reside with the original themes authors.
One last note. The White theme on the XBox build has been moved to the googlecode page. This will cut back the size of the XBox release zip and I'm not sure just how many people actually use this theme, thus the move.
Enjoy (and back to last minute checking of skin for release for me)
Problem with Passion repo - wyrm - 2011-07-01 07:34
Sorry just noticed that there is a problem with the skin on the Passion repo. Probably due to me changing the case of the Pal and Pal16x9 directories they have not been included in the archive. I will get onto the Passion guys and get them to organise for another pull with the correct directories. Unless you hear otherwise tomorrows update from Passion should have the problem fixed.

Quote:when i fast forward music, the osd doesnt show just cd coverNot sure if I have fixed this one, have fixed a focus issue, so maybe. But the musicvisualisation code really needs a complete re-write, which I'm not going to do before v1.1.1 comes out.
I'm looking after a problem with favourites and then I will release the skin (at least that is the plan, still having issues that I can't seem to fix). So by all means keep posting bugs, but I'm on a complete freeze on new work on the skin until at least a week AFTER v1.1.1 release. I am rapidly losing interest in the skin and REALLY need a break. I would like to actually play with XBMC and not just spend all of my free time coding. That and this has dragged on way too long.

i often have trouble with the Passion repo and the SVN skin. If i make an update for xTV(SVN), i get either an incomplete skin (buttons only) or a black screen which terminates XBMC after a while and returns to frontrow of the ATV2.
If i then restart XBMC, i get the Confluence skin. In all cases i recognized that there were errors in the file structure. Currently the PAL folders are missing...
Do you think that this is a ATV related problem ?

Sorry Passion guys have not got back to me to say they have fixed the issue listed a few posts back. Current Passion builds are missing pal and pal16x9 directories due to a directory rename I made a few builds ago.
Solution at this stage is to go into the packages subdirectory of addons and find an earlier xTV-SAF build. Open the zip file and grab the pal and pal16x9 directories and copy to the current xTV-SAF directory in addons.
This will fix the problem for the moment and hopefully either Passion problem will resolve itself (will advise when this happens) or heaven forbid I will resolve the favourites issue that is delaying the formal release of v1.1.1

Hey all, it's been a long time since I've checked in here, but I just recently got around to jailbreaking one of my Apple TV 2G's and installing XBMC on that and now I'm in love with XBMC again. Next step is to "dumb down" the UI to make it elegant and simple again, so my first thought was to check this thread to see what the latest update on xTV-SAF was. I did a quick search but wasn't entirely sure, so I figured I'd post a reply to get the official word: Does this skin work well with the Apple TV 2G? Thanks!

Current version(v1.1.0) runs OK, New version (Now that I have sorted a major problem is in a day or so) runs great. Watch for announcement post for new version(v.1.1.1).

Thanks. Yeah, after posting my last reply, I tried installing from the zip file in the original post, but got an error of some sort. So then I followed the instructions for installing the Passion repo, and installing through that, but I then ran into the problem with the missing "PAL" directories. So I then manually copied those over from the zip file I had originally downloaded. That got things working, but I quickly ran into the problem of not being able to exit out of the System menu. So I'm guessing that the version I was playing with was v1.1.0.
One thing I noticed in my brief time of playing with it was that I didn't see any Add-On's under the Movies or TV Shows menus. Does v1.1.1 support Video Add-On's?
Edit: Nevermind, it looks like post #453 explains how to add add-ons.
