Any development on getting it to exit properly?

I had a kind of fail safe idea, can you redirect the exit function to run the uninstall command, so you can exit when you need to, and just reapply when you want it back?

Wow Davilla, my bad. I find it funny how offended people get when you ask something that you obviously overlooked when searching. Thanks for all of your dev (and search) work.

What you clearly don't appreciate is these guys field simliar already answered questions from litterately 100's of people just like yourself. Who if they'd just taken 1/10000 of the personal time the devs had spent developing in finding out the answers for themself wouldn't need to be babysat...

Just registered to thank the devs for putting up with all the constant repetitive noob questions, and still give us the time, to even bother answering the forums. Keep it upCool

Well, someone will just need to write an Airplay client for XBMC!

To summarize, it appears that the only two issues with this are that Airplay is no longer accessible and you cannot shut off/sleep the Apple TV, correct? Thanks.

The whole frontrow is not acessible. So no iTunes sharing, apple trailers, netflix, etc. But yes, that's pretty much it.

YES! Thanks so much for this, great work. Exactly what I was thinking of when I started this post.

As I have it hooked up to only my Audio system, and use a WDTV Live for video playback, this is now the perfect XBMC hardware. With the crashing due to update notices fixed, and this autoboot hack, my wife will use the atv all day long now Big Grin

Thanks again!

How about an XBMC plugin to install de-install this package. Should do the trick and make everyone happy.

I would do it but I don't know python (and I'm lazy).

I guess one way to make booting into frontrow possible would be to extend the tomcool XBMC autoboot thinge with some simple boolean state variable saying whether to boot into XBMC or frontrow.

At autoboot into XBMC variable should be toggled so next boot (made upon XBMC exit) would be made into frontrow.

At boot into frontrow variable shall be toggled to make next boot to start XBMC.

Likely I'm missing any obvious drawbacks with such simple approach making it non useful but hopefully not. :-)

Maybe you should head over to the tomcool forums and suggest that.

I don't agree with macke_h's suggestion, but if you could manage the state easily from some UI (plugin?), it might be a good idea.

Right now I think the easiest soln would be to install/uninstall the pkg w/ a plugin.

I remove the application by typing:
apt-get remove org.tomcool.xbmc-booter

I can see with dpkg -l that it is not here anymore, but when I reboot the ATV2 (4.3 with Tivo) it still boots on XBMC, I can't get anymore in FrontRow.

Is there something I missed?
