It depends on where you uploaded and installed the custom addons. The post quoted above show the proper path on where it should go to prevent being overwritten by new XBMC update. Look for the addons folder and you'll notice any item downloaded through the addons interface of XBMC appear there. Thus, that is where you should put any addons you manually upload.
Hope that makes sense.

Ah, I installed both the iPlayer addon and the reFocus addon into the frappliance/xbmcdata/xbmxhome/addons folder because that's what I read in other forum posts (the iPlayer addon is specifically advised to be put in that folder in this very thread actually).
So I should SFTP back into the ATV2 and move both the skin and the iplayer addon to the addons folder you name above, and restart?

Yup, give it a try.

Yeah that worked
Also, it added a wee reFocus splash screen when starting up XBMC that definitely wasn't there before. Nice

Are you on ethernet or on wifi? and what build are you on? Have you tried the option "sync back to display" with "audio clock" ?

Hidef Divx or Xvid is not supported by the GPU (hardware decoding) and has to rely on the CPU so will never play smoothly unlike x264 (mkv) files which are hardware supported. Same goes for wmv etc. Only standard def versions of those files will play smoothly.

Would like to add that I'm using this build and it kept dropping out on me when I first set it up, I think because I added sources and tried scraping. I would literally press down a few times in my movie list and it would just crash. So I booted it up and left it scraping, went out for a bit, came back and all was done and I haven't had a crash since. I'm running wired and I do seem to see a bit of judder here and there on 720p rips.
A very good example is the latest Archer opening credits. When he fires the gun and the white bullet/ball goes through the images it goes really frickin' slow on the ATV. On the mini directly or even through wifi on the laptop, it is smooth as butter.

Same issue. Both encrypted and un-encrypted ISO's throw the same error in syslog.
libdvdread: Can't open smb://ansible/movies/unencrypted.iso for reading
Jan 29 08:35:39 Apple-TV com.apple.frontrow: libdvdread: Encrypted DVD support unavailable.
Jan 29 08:35:39 Apple-TV com.apple.frontrow: libdvdread: Could not open input: No such file or directory
Not sure why it thinks its encrypted. Its most definitely not because ATV2 XBMC can play the VOB's extracted from it manually fine.
newest Jan 28th .deb

I have installed the latest build from 1/29 and one issue I seem to be having is that when in xbmc it seems to have a hard time connecting to the network
for example when I go in videos and click on plugins it keeps saying not connected to network and after a few restarts of xbmc it works again.
Didn't seem to have this issue in previous builds.
Also have blue tooth apple keyboard set up but letter input still not working

x2. I see this as well, but with the 26th build. A simple XBMC restart always fixes it. I thought it only affected my SMB shares since my library always auto updates on startup just fine, but I'll try add-ons next time as well.
