I'm running 10.0.7 (2/19/11) which is newer than Keith's latest build (2/17/11). Although I have ran almost every build Keith has put out over the past two weeks and none of them made any improvements for me.

I also noticed that, even if the audio is set to optical sound is coming through hdmi. Hopes that will be fixed to next release.

my set up is as follows.
10MB Cable BB
Connected to a belkin wireless router
Buffalo linkstation live NAS wired to the router
Apple tv 2 wired to the router
PS3 connected wirelessly
Apple IPAD connected wirelessly
I have the latest official build of XBMC with the stock skin.
On any video file streamed from the NAS under 900mb i get perfect playback on the apple tv, no issues, anything bigger than that (all my files are avi, 720p max) i get stuttering and sound issues.
These issues dont exist on my ps3 (where the file will play, not all are recognised by the ps3)
Performance is also vastly superior on my ipad wirelessly streaming thro xbmc from the NAS, most large files that are unwatchable on the apple tv are ok on the ipad.
i have downloaded the 1080 big bucks bunny file, it stutters on the apple tv and the ipad, but much much less on the ipad.
given that the apple tv is wired and the ipad is wireless surely this points to it not being a network issue?

I have recently had some buffer issues as well. I am on the latest official firmware, and all my files work, except for two HD films that I downloaded from iTunes.
They start but continuously buffer from the very start. I tried watching the files back on the offical front row Apple TV software, and they play back fine, so it is not a network issue. I only have one other 720p file, and I think it is xvid, and that plays back fine.
Edit: I stream my files from my NAS drive, via SMB.

Typically XBMC won't touch anything with DRM protection and anything you get off of iTunes has DRM protection on it. i.e. playing iTunes movies is not supposed to be supported by XBMC at all.
At least as I understand it.

I didn't re-rip the file. Just added it straight to my share after downloading it from iTunes. I hadn't even thought that it wouldn't play the files because of DRM. I know that iTunes music is DRM free now, are the films not?
It does open the file though and begin to play, but just starts buffering straight away. I downloaded an SD film from iTunes as well. I'll give that a go when I get home and see if it plays.

My understanding is that iTunes videos are still officially DRM-protected which is why AirPlay is a big deal. Otherwise, big deal just copy the file.
This guy in 2009 thought to complain about it.
Maybe it works anyway and your buffering issue is unrelated. I guess if you had XBMC on your computer you could test it there and check that one off as an issue.
