Thnks!!

If using a Mac, open terminal.

ssh root@<ip address of ATV2>

Enter alpine as the password when prompted.

Then run the command:
rm -rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/guisettings.xml

That tells it to remove, if need be...by force, the guisettings.xml file.

Then run the command:
killall AppleTV
that is the updated command to kill any services/apps that the AppleTV LowTide interface have launch. You'll see XBMC close out and the AppleTV's default LowTide interface. Simply launch XBMC again and the guidsettings.xml file you deleted earlier will automatically get generated with the default settings.

That's all there is to it.

Additional Note: If you are using a Windows machine, download and use the free PUTTY software as the SSH client to connect to your ATV2 device.
