I assume you have HDMI to TV for video and optical to receiver for sound? Just set your TV to "use external speakers" or some similar setting.

Thanks to you and the whole xbmc team for making this available.
For me the big question is, if your latest build is any different than the latest official one ?
Is it possible to get such an info myself (from git?) ?

Just look at the Git link to ATV2 from the first page. The date of keith's build will usually contain all of the commits for that day. So anything added past that date would be in the newer build.
You'll see that keith's build is the 17th. And the official build has all the commit up to the 19th. Now you know how to figure it out yourself. Holler if it's still doesn't make sense.

Definitely second that sentiment. The WDTV I had was better on paper (specs) but it kept mysteriously losing my network at odd times and complaining that it couldn't play certain videos when it had played that same video without a hitch earlier in the day.
My ATV2 + XBMC is pretty close to all that I want in a media player, and if/when the higher def playback gets a bit smoother, it will definitely have everything!

I thought the WDTV Live was gonna be the device for me as well. Coming from an original Xbox with XBMC on it for many, many years. It was a huge disappointment once I hooked up the WDTV Live.
Sadly, XBMC was ahead of it's time and even now, with all the mired of media streaming devices out there, they have a hard time keeping up with my Revo with miniUbuntu/XBMC self built appliance box.
Anyways what's up with these "modern" media streaming boxes with such poorly design UIs? Anyways, I had stutter and hiccups with the WDTV Live whereas my Revo XBMC played fine. So I returned the WDTVLive and invested in ATV2 to do Netflix and iTunes sharing. Now, with XBMC, it makes a great little media streaming device for the price. It'll only get better from here...but am satisfy as it is already.

As soon as I get Harmony key stroke support on the ATV, I will be set. I can deal with small bugs and what not, but not being able to map the buttons to keyboard presses is really killing me.

No idea, haven't seen that issue.

When I force movie to play in DTS sound, no audio from TV is coming, only from reciever (Good)! I think thats weird.

I can confirm that setting both HDMI or Optical doesn't make a difference. Sound will be still played through the HDMI connection.

hovnarr, please report possible bugs to the team, not to individual team members.
