Thats normal for some TVs. It would be a bug, when the window is not centered or when its rotated 90 degrees. The normal overscan (your 6%) is some setting of the TV (mostly you have a setting in the TV itself - something like "scan&pan" or "overscan") for fixing it without zooming.

thanks for your amazing work. I really appreciate this.
Unfortunately I get an error on my fresh installation:

AppleTV:~ root# dpkg -i org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-2_iphoneos-arm.deb
(Reading database ... 4580 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2 11.0-0 (using org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-2_iphoneos-arm.deb) ...

dpkg - trying script from the new package instead ...

chown: cannot access `/Applications/XBMC.frappliance': No such file or directory
Errors were encountered while processing:
org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-2_iphoneos-arm.deb

so what is missing?

I do have the folder: /Applications/AppleTV.app/Appliances
and there's a link in it: XBMC.frappliance -> /Applications/XBMC.frappliance
but /Applications/XBMC.frappliance doesn't exist.

I think you missed on running:
Code:
mkdir /Applications/AppleTV.app/Appliances

before installing.

You missed the apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2 after creating that folder? (for installing the previous cydia version and its deps). Muh that installation issues suck. Just mkdir all dirs he is complaining about Sad

It's working great for me, thanks!

Improved the install instructions a bit more (but because i don't have these problems and am to lazy to rejailbreak to make it fresh - its more sort of brute forcing possible issues and work them around hehe).

i haven't upgraded to ios 5.1 yet but want to get a little clarification for when i do. when i update the device, will my prior install of xbmc be wiped out? i know that if it isn't wiped out it wouldn't work anyway until i do the xbmc install instructions in the new thread by Memphiz. However, the "first installing the official cydia version" part is what is confusing me. How do i go about installing that before running the code outlined below it? or do i ONLY run the code portion of that post?

Thanks for all your hard work!



Installation via ssh (first installing the official cydia version which installs all dependencys and the update with the version from this thread):

Code:
apt-get update
mkdir -p /Applications/AppleTV.app/Appliances
apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
mkdir -p /Applications/XBMC.frappliance
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14341410/org.xbm...os-arm.deb
dpkg -i org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-2_iphoneos-arm.deb
rm org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-2_iphoneos-arm.deb

dpkg -i org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-2_iphoneos-arm.deb
rm org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-2_iphoneos-arm.deb

EVERYTHING will be wiped as the OS will be set back to the default (iOS/iTunes will restore it to factory settings) Then when you re-jailbreak you install the latest official release (the line that says "apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2") then you get the fixed version for iOS 5.1 ("wget http://dl.drop".. etc) then you install that over the old version ("dpkg -i org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-2_iphoneos-arm.deb")

So everything you need are in those commands you posted, just follow them in order. Hope that helps.

@mamezito
which command did you you use prior to your error message?

@ruffellprefley
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.

--> too late ;-) deanmv won.
