Question  Video Library Web Content Issue
Post: #1
I have ATV & an iMAC and have successfully scraped imdb web content for my video library through the iMAC xbmc UI. looks awesome. I expected ATV to pick up the web content for my video library from the iMAC source but no joy so tried to get to the context menu on ATV and discovered that didn't work so after messing around a while, discovered that there was an ATV 2.2 + XBMCLauncher update for this problem.

All good but here's the strange thing:

1) Installed the launcher update to my ATV 2.1 and bingo without doing a scrape web content for my video appeared.
2) The context menu still didn't work so updated ATV to 2.2 and patchsticked again, installed launcher update, installed XBMC and Boxee
3) Web Content against video library missing again!
4) Context menu working but for the life of me can't get the scrape to do anything (starts to scan, stops immediately either on a single video folder or the parent folder containing all my videos)

Can anyone advise:
1) Should web content be "synced" from my iMAC
2) Any idea why my ATV won't scrape

If you can post the log file from your Apple TV (~/Library/Logs/xbmc.log), someone can look at it.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Please read and follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting, please make sure you read this first.

That will involve SSH and copying files via console right? Is there a post you can direct me to that gives me the commands to do that?

Would be awsome to get the working web content working its driving me nuts.

I think I answered my own question with a bit of google-ing. I'll try tonight

scp [email]frontrow@appletv.local:/Library/Logs/xbmc.log .1

Well, this returned a file not found but a different path returned this

If anyone can help me I'd be extremely grateful. I notice that this issue hasn't generated much feedback so I am guessing this must just be me. If so if its a case of factory resetting the ATV and restarting I'm happy to do so, or if its an issue with my MAC XBMC installation again i'm happy to trash it but at the moment I'm at a dead end
