I just bought apple tv 2 , firmware 5.2.1 and I noticed it crashes every time I play an HD movie. I enabled dubugging and after the apple tv crashed I uploaded the log.
Here is a link with the log:

I will appreciate any advice or help!
Thank you

I didn't read the log, but I'm almost sure this is a memory leak known issue still not fixed. I was so frustrated for this that I had to test a Pivos XIOS. Much better

Try setting

<cachemembuffersize>34603008</cachemembuffersize>

to

<cachemembuffersize>0</cachemembuffersize>

in your advancedsettings.xml file.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Your userdata folder. Your log shows you have one, but XBMC does not make this file by default. If you did not make this file then where did it come from? This is a file that should not be made unless you know what it does.

install winscp
use your atv2 ip adress
user root
password alpine

and look here

/private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/

right click the advancedsettings.xml and edit

easiest way
