Then post your xbmc.log and crashreporter logs. You MUST give to get. No logs, no soups. I've said that a thousand time.

and here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17635007/CrashRe...215.plistv
and here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17635007/CrashRe...anic.plist

That's from the nightly on the 8th. I can do the latest nightly, or the last stable if need be.

The only advantage of ios 5 on ATV2 would be AirPlay mirroring which Ive been waiting for a loooong time

But as long as ios 5 isn't out publicly they won't say a thing I guess Wink

Who wouldn't love to have XBMC and mirror an iPad 2 on the same hardware...

Can someone humour me and explain to a non-expert what the discussion is about? I thought that ATV2 is not effected by ios5, so mirroring is a pure bonus is you have an ipad2 and atv2?

correct. with an ipad 2 or iphone 4s (due to the a5 processor) you can use airplay mirroring to "project" everything you do on your idevice to ur ATV2

1st url:
no real info here, looks like xbmc crashed/was killed before trying playback.

2nd url:
404, can get to it.
EDIT: stray 'v' at end of url. This is not a crashreport from xbmc.

3rd url:
oooh kernel panic but I don't see xbmc.app listed in the know running items.

cat /var/log/syslog would be interesting to see.

Personally, I was hoping for the Apple keyboard bluetooth. I just hate the scrolling with the remote to type.

mirroring won't work on my aTV 2 with iOS 4 and iPad iOS 5 for me, there is no option to do this. So i think we need iOS 5 on aTV to get this feature...

That's an iPad1? As I understand it mirroring only works on the iPad2 or iPhone 4s. I don't think there is any new operating system for the ATV2, it's completely different.

ATV2 needs ios5 as well to mirror. There is no ATV2 GM yet. All other device already have ios5 GM.
Shows that apple sees ATV2 only as a "hobby"

And yes, it's iPad 2 and iPhone 4s only. It requires the a5 processor

Geeze I'm confused - are you saying that mirroring will not work on the ATV2 yet (and probably not for some time) until it itself has a new operating system? The Apple site itself has the following text - is this just missleading then?

[/i]Wow your audience in the board room, classroom, or living room. AirPlay now supports video mirroring. Which means you can wirelessly — and securely — stream whatever’s on your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S to your HDTV via Apple TV. Everyone in the room sees exactly what’s on your iPad or iPhone display up on the big screen — even when you rotate your device from portrait to landscape or zoom in and out.[/i]

Edit: I also searched before and there was a Youtube clip of mirroring using the ATV2 and a beta of ios5 on the ipad2. If it doesn't work I'll be so pissed! (I'm at work now so can't check, assuming that ios5 is available now in the UK that is.)
