@happyendin21 please try with updated version and report back
Thanks again Memphiz for the prompt response. I updated the script and I get a new but similar problem it is confluence being offset on the bottom of the screen. The Bottom is not visible and the top ends mid screen I have attached another pic of the problem. I appreciate the prompt responses. I am in no rush to get this working and appreciate the time and effort you have gone through to get this to work. This does not appear to be something that can be fixed with zoom or tv settings on my end. Am I the only one having these or similar problems?

I can confirm I'm having the same issue. Running on a Samsung LN40B530 at 720p 60hz. Tried 480p 60hz with identical results.

your previous configuration will be lost.
Yes you only have to run your Code example.

with the official cydia version the part "apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2" was meant.

thank you both for your timely and informative responses. cheers!!

Thanks for the quick work on this! I installed it on my ATV today but when I launch xbmc, it opens in portrait! i.e. the screen is rotated 90 degrees to the right. Is this a known issue?

thesteve, yup - it's in the sticky for the atv build, as well as a few posts up Smile

Sounds like it may be a TV compatibility issue?

I was able to navigate off-screen to the video calib settings, but the "screen" it's calibrating to appears to be offscreen as well

Found a way to fix this... I SSH'd into ATV and then opened up guisettings.xml from /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata

In there under the 'resolutions' section I changed references to 720 to 1080 dimension sizes instead. Respring ATV, open XBMC and it now appears to work...

Hope that is of some help. Nice one to Memphiz for the patch! Smile

apt-get update
mkdir -p /Applications/AppleTV.app/Appliances

I also get: couldn't find packe org.xmbc.xmbc-atv2. Any ideas? Am I missing steps in the process?

Mmmhh hard to track down the issues some of you have with rotated view or non-centered screen. Will have to sleep about it a while (its not that easy if you can't reproduce it with your own equipment Wink ).

Could one of you where it doesn't work right post me the xbmc.log and syslog please?

I don't profess to be any kind of expert, more of a nosey enthusiast, but I experienced issue where XBMC was rotated after I installed your patch. However, I opened up the guisettings.xml file and in the rotations section changed everything that looked like reference to 720 to dimensions that worked for 1080 and after a respring it all worked fine.

Hope that is of some help to you...

Jon
