My problem is the refreshrate change. In beta4 it worked after about 2 min of switching, were sound to amp is interupted. Back to beta2 now, and switches a bit faster but still takes about 30 sec; it just doesnt feel stable.
Will upgrade to RC1 later and thought it would not hurt to update nvidia to the latest as well.
Does it make a bit sense?

To be quite frank, no, it does not make sense. If it isn't broken do not fix it. If you go down the route of upgrading then you may as well upgrade to Maverick, update ALSA, and update NVIDIA. As far as I am concerned, the current Nvidia drivers provide no issues (unlike later versions), so I would not change this. You could get undesired results (which it sounds like you have).
P.S: Don't double post.

Sam, this may be a stupid question, but: if I did a dist-upgrade in crystalbuntu, would it leave me with a kernel that won't boot.....
Just wondering if I could do a few cheeky dist-upgrade from 8.04 --> 8.10 --> 9.04 --> 9.10? I know it's possible on regular machines, but will yours (and pin's) mach kernel pass on to the dist-upgraded linux kernel? Or does the mach kernel need to be re-compiled for each dist-upgrade?

i did the ls | grep Makefile and nothing happens, it just goes back to the prompt.
when I do the sudo /usr/bin/apt-get install build-essential patch, it says
"sudo: usr/bin/apt-get: command not found.
But I did it just after firing up the ATV and SSHing in...do i need to go to a different folder or something? Where in the steps you gave before do I install this buildtool essentials?
Thanks again, I feel like I'm close to getting this to work!

You've missed the / off the front of usr. You would need:
sudo /usr/bin/apt-get install build-essential patch
sudo usr/bin/apt-get install build-essential patch
which looks for usr in the folder you are currently in. But usr resides at the root level, hence the error..... and the reason for the / before usr
but if your path is set right, you should be able to run:
sudo apt-get install build-essential patch
and get the desired result anyway. Hope this helps,

Sorry, can't remember double posting?
Anyway, the autorefreshrate change didn't work at all with the original Nvidia drivers. With the newer drivers it did work... yesterday I update to the latest version, and to RC1 as well, and the switching is MUCH more stable... So maybe in technical terms it doesn't make sense, from a user experience it's soooo much better! (granted, can be due to RC1 as well)

Thanks Jim, that's exactly what happened
So I've done the entire process again exactly as laid out on page 145 of this thread. It appears that it runs correctly all the way up to this part:
I'm at wits end here! (not really, I'm enjoying the challenge lol) does anyone have any suggestions?

After having several issues with beta 4, I'm currently back at beta 2 and CHD r156 (Thanks to jelleeelco)
This combination gives very stable results in my opinion.
Before trying to upgrade to RC1 (with or without an upgrade to R174), how is the experience of the 'early adaptors'?

If you want to go 8.0.4 > 8.10 > 9.04. > 9.10 sneaky is not the word . You would indeed need to recompile the mach_kernel each time. This isn't actually difficult - you just replace the ramdisk and vmlinuz with the Ubuntu one. I wouldn't recommend this though. If you're interested on a newer version of Ubuntu - just kexec the netboot image off a patchstick and install to the system directly. It'll be a fresher and cleaner install.
Ok your getting no result because makefile isn't there. This is because the parted configuring script wouldn't work because you didn't have the build tools, so no Makefile was created. Just repeat these steps and your there

What the best crystalhd driver version to use right now? I'm on XBMC RC1 and CHD 174 and it doesn't play stuff that used to play with Beta 2 and whatever version I was on back then.
