anybody else experiencing some occasional crashes. For me its about every 2 days. Didnt check the logs yet btw.
Also, how can I disable that the apple tv is going to search for updates while starting. Is it going to update to the latest stable release every restart (for xbmc and broadcom drivers). I'd prefer to update myself and Im not sure about the automatic updating.

It's not working for me, I tried it above exit 0 and under. The line I added was:
echo atv | sudo -S reboot
But I still get back to the bash

I have Sam's image running fairly well on the ATV HDD for about 6 weeks, still using the Ubuntu 8.04(Hardy) and SVN 28256.
The audio on every movie I stream to XBMC has an electronic chattering sound, almost like a toy machine-gun? This used to be intermittent like once in a great while but now it happens on every movie I stream to the unit. Has anyone experienced this? How did you fix it?
Lastly should I upgrade from the SVN 28256?

Are you using HDMI? if yes I fixed mine by changing the output from HDMI to analog 2.0. I only use the TV's speakers so it is fine with me.
Make sure on the bottom you have plughw:0,3 (which you would have anyway).
I also noticed (unrelated) that running apt-get upgrade has a kernel image to upgrade. This is what made my screen go pink and had to do it all over to fix it. The weired thign is that the kernel version is the same - I wonder if the one Sam's use has been modified in any way.

Yes I am using HDMI. I will check to the analog 2 and see what happens as I am using the LCD's speaker system as well.
The wierd part for me is that it worked great at first with no problem. I seem to recall a post by Mr. Davilla saying that .avi's were painful and I think he also mentioned that pulse audio was not friendly either. Not his exact words of course. I can't find anything else on this other that what was in Sam Nazarko's thread of his build.
I am not updating the kernel at all unless it becomes a must do thing. I don't do this type of work for a living and it would take me two days to rebuild the little machine.
I am also trying to find out if upgrading to a later version of XBMC Live would help errors, buffering, crashes etc. I have been living with those things also on an intermittent basis. Some folks have solid stable ATV's and I have one that is about 2/3rds the way there.
Thanks for the suggestion, I will try that when I can get my girlfriend off the LCD.

I have had the same issue with the loud machine gun noise (like some called it here ) since the latest version of XBMC was installed on my ATV. It started on the original software of the ATV with OSX and even after moving to Linux. The good thing is that with Linux at least the Analogue version works which it does not with the OSX version. Sam's image (as well as openelec) run so much better on the ATV than the original software hence I installed it directly on the HDD.
Let us know how you go,

I'm still trying to get an TP-LINK TL-WN821N USB-WLAN stick to work which is supposed to be using the ath9k_htc driver (compact-wireless). But still the system refuses to load the *.fw firmware-file belonging to the chipset of the device which is correctly located in /lib/firmware.
The first question is again: You got any idea why this happens or how to resolve this?
Second question is: In one forum the told me to upgrade the Kernel to Mainline Kernel v2.6.36-rc7-maverick. I did this by installing the provided deb-packages (i386) but the system still loads the old 2.6.24-28-generic. So is there a possibility to upgrade the Kernel myself or not. And if so what am I doing wrong.
Thanks in advance!
