i moved my thumbs back locally, and it's still slow, not as slow but still very slow, slower that i think it should be

When using MySQL with multiple XBMC devices, do the settings (audio, video, etc) get sync'd to the database, or is this local to each device only?
I have two ATV2's set to use the same MySQL database but the audio/video settings are different..video has different screen dimension adjustments, and speaker config and DD support is different for each device.

I just purchased an atv2 and I'm trying to configure it to use my SQL database, but when I launch XBMC I'm getting the following errors in the log file. I'm running Keith's nightly build from March 26th. I'm also getting the same error on my Windows machine running a nightly build from March 29th.

i have what may be a very simple problem, that, after reading through all 24 pages of this thread, i can't seem to find a solution.
bit of background: i have all my media (and mysql) on a windows home server, i have a HTPC with Windows 7, and atv2 in the bedroom. I have changed advancedsettings.xml to map to mysql and this works fine on both machines.
my atv2 connects fine to the mysql server, but whenever i try to play anything, it says the file no longer exists.
in xbmc.log, i get "permission denied" errors whenever it tries to go get a file.
I'm assuming the problem is that it doesn't have the user/pass combination to gain access to my server, but I've no idea where/how to feed this in.
Would appreciate any help you guys can provide on this.
thanks in advance
Scratch that - all seems to be working now. I set the folder on the server to allow everyone to access, and I made sure that the server folders were in videos as sources.

This won't be a problem. The database maintains information about the media only, not about settings.

Do you still have an XBMC install where the database works ?
If so I'd strongly recommend exporting that database (Settings->Video->Library->Export database->Single file) and starting from scratch with recent builds. A lot of stuff has happened to the builds since March 26th. For one, the navigation is a lot more responsive on the ATV.

I couldn't find this mentioned anywhere, so I'll mention it in this thread. One more post can't hurt :-)
Adding to the great post by TheRealDL from February 27th in this thread, I found that this extra grant for the non-admin user is great to add:
This ensures that when you have newly acquired media in your database which hasn't been properly scanned, information about the stream (720p, 1080p, Dolby 5.1, DTS, etc) gets picked up by your ATV2 client and then actually get stored in the central database.

TheRealDL I followed your excelent guide
... but i can't put to work the ATV2 with the normal user if I change to the user admin everything works. Do you have any idea of the problem??
This is my log file: xbmc.log
and this is my advancedsettings.xml:
Anynone can help? please thanks

This is definitely something I'd like to get going on my network, as I have 2 ATVs and would love to sync everything. Has anyone gotten this setup and running on a WHS 2011 machine? I tried to install MySQL but can't get the MySql command prompt to launch, so I'm stuck. (Sorry that this is not directly ATV related, but if anyone could PM me with any suggestions to get MySQL access on WHS 2011, that would be great!)
