I have eden beta 1 with the night skin and every time i play a movie from my movie library, xbmc crashes and goes out to the main appletv menu.

what weird is if i play the movie by going into files , it will play. and if i go into the hd movies area of the night skin it plays fine.

i noticed thatwhen i was in debug mode, if i gointo themovie library the cpu jumps from 66% up to 96%.

the debug log can be found here:

any ideas what the problem might be?

You might try switching to Confluence skin and testing. Might be the skin.

If xbmc crashes back to lowtide then you should provide a crashdump and syslog.

Also - update to beta 2. It is less "crashy".

thanks - i didnt see that in the signature at first Smile

so i looked for a crashreporter log and the most recent one is AppleTV_2012-01-23... so it seems that there was no crashreport for the crashed I experienced last night.

I also just looked at the syslog and the latest entries are form Jan 23rd. so nothign from last night. seems weird. I posted both of them anyway in case it helps...

The syslog was actually huge so pastebin wouldnt let me paste the whole thing in there. All i could get to fit were the entries from Jan 23rd. they can be found here: http://pastebin.com/pgyFT18G

the crashreport from jan 23rd can be found here:
http://pastebin.com/zyTh52QK

hopefully this helps - let me know if you are able to find anything.

Ok so is this the correct method?
SSH and then then run the following commands:
apt-get update
apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
