Couple of questions:
1) On the ATV2 version, is there any reason I can't use Cyberduck to copy the files over via SSH and the GUI, rather than unzipping via the Terminal? I'm not scared of the terminal, just wondered...
2) Can anyone confirm *where* the plugins go on the ATV build? I'm used to the directory structure on the Xbox version, but I tried copying them over to where I thought they should be and the plugin doesn't show up when I add a source. A quick confirmation of the location would be great - I'm assuming I just copy the unzipped plugin to a new folder in the plugin folder?
Thanks, hoping to get this new version installed tonight.

No, I used Cyberduck and achieved the same goal.
Just use what you feel more confortable with

Added Pictures to the thread as 'needs testing'.

meshuga Wrote:Wait, not only do you have static w/ ac3 enabled you also have fast running video when its enabled?
Yes, I have static w/ ac3 over hdmi enabled.
I should probably be more specific in that whenever I turn HDMI on as the sound output, regardless of channel number or AC3 being enabled, the iplayer streams run fast. When I set sound to analog, suddenly everything works as normal.
I looked in the usual path for guisettings and it isn't there anymore - i'll take another look tonight though.
Additionally, I don't believe I am the only person to report the video running fast on the iPlayer plugin. Please note normal video is fine.

As stated in this thread, plugins issues aren't going to be looked at until after atv2 gets merged into mainline since it's too much of a moving target. You can post a message in the plugin dev's thread in hopes he has an atv2 or just wait.
I don't know what the 'usual path' is, but this is the path that I've always used.
Static on HDMI audio could be a receiver problem. Have you disabled generate thumbnails? If so, please connect your HDMI cable directly to your TV and see what results you get. It sounds like your receiver isn't like the AppleTV handshake. Does it have static regardless of DTS and AC3 enabled?

iPlayer plugin questions :
I notice a couple of people here seem to have iPlayer working and wonder whether I am missing something obvious?
I downloaded IPlayer-v2.3.2.zip from http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-iplayerv2/ on ATV2 using wget command via SSH. In XBMC I used the 'install video addon' and 'from a zip file' options to successfully install the plugin.
However, the iplayer plugin just fails with a script error every time I try it.
Can any one with more experience suggest what may be wrong or let me know if this is even the correct version to use
P.S I am running the 26th Jan XBMC build from this thread.

I used the IPlayer-v2.3.2.zip version and extracted it to a folder called plugin.video.iplayer in addons and it works fine.
but as stated any bugs or issues with plugins will be ignored untill code is mainlined.

Of course, thanks for confirming I wasn't doing anything stupid.

Try downloading "the hitcher" repo zip instead and downloading iplayer addon via that (after uninstalling the old version).
This resolved my iplayer issues.
