Hi, don't know where else to turn so I thought I'd get some help from the experts here:

Been a faithful user of Exposed on my ATV2G for a number of years (

Currently running Frodo 12.3 on my ATV2G (iOS 5.3, jailbroken via Firecore as of yesterday). Exposed has worked very well to control XBMC via my Macbook (running a VNC client program) for earlier versions of the iOS jailbreak (I believe my last version I ran was 4.4?)…. anyways, unfortunately now that I've upgraded to iOS 5.3 Exposed doesn't quite work - but only when I'm running XBMC. Full keyboard access isn't working, only the arrow keys (which reduces me to hunt-and-peck - which is exactly what Exposed usually has helped to correct).

Anyone have any idea how this problem might be corrected within XBMC? I really don't want to downgrade my ATV2G setup (and I suppose it's possible that might not even work).

Thanks, any help appreciated.

moved to general discussion as it seems an Exposed application issue.

Exposed is very flaky when it comes to XBMC on ATV2. Sometimes it won't work at all, and even when it does it will use additional RAM, making crashes more likely.

While this costs money, it might be a better solution: Type2Phone:

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Add-on:YouTube]] = Add-on:YouTube, [[Adding videos to the library]] = Adding videos to the library, [[userdata]] = userdata, etc
