Or that ^^ . If XBMC isn't running at the time.

If I have helped you in any way, please forgive me, it was entirely accidental.

Then run "./mkdeb-xbmc-atv2.sh release"

Then transfer the deb to the atv2 and install with dpkg -i

Thanks again for the help. Worked perfectly. I posted the .deb in case anyone wants to play. This is built from git clone May 26 @ 9:21 AM EST.

packaging it makes it very nice Tongue also will automatically kill appletv and takes barely any time at all to do.. also lets you share if you really want to.

The sharing is a nice thought, but best not done in this thread. It convolutes the bug chasing having multiple versions out there. Best to drop Keith a pm and let him know how the version works for you and he can put one out.

Agreed, still didn't answer my question " how is copying XBMC.frappliance unsafe?" Smile

Besides, when you testing something and have to install it on atv2 100 times in one night, you quickly decide that making a deb is just waste of time Smile

Question  Keith, I hope I'm not afoul of the rules...
Post: #369
I hope it's ok to ask this here...

What is the difference between the two 'latest' builds?

latest_atv2.deb

and

latest_ios.deb

Which would be appropriate for the iPhone? Either?

latest_ios.deb is for iOS(iPhone/iPad)

Smile  Thank you.
Post: #371
Thanks Amet!

Also, there was a guy on here somewhere struggling with the installation because he got a "wget: command not found error".

If you are having that issue you need to install 'wget', and probably 'aptitude' too. Both are available on Cydia in the Telesphoreo Tengelo repo (http://apt.saurik.com/).

Also, I was reading about they Cydia autoinstall folder... apparently if you put a deb in the folder cydia will automatically install it on boot? Would that work for the xbmc semi-nightly?

My (mp3) music playback stopped at 1 sec and crashed XBMC, BUT this workaround is easy and working!

The PAPlayer (default audio player) seems to cause the crash, but the DVDplayer plays the mp3's like a sharm!
You can just choose "Play using..." on any MP3 and select DVDplayer, but to fix it permanent just edit or create the advancedsettings.xml in you userdata folder and add:

Existing advancedsettings.xml add:
[INDENT]<audio>[/INDENT]
[INDENT][INDENT]<defaultplayer>dvdplayer</defaultplayer>[/INDENT][/INDENT]
[INDENT]</audio>[/INDENT]

Creating an advancedsettings.xml add:
[INDENT]<advancedsettings>[/INDENT]

[INDENT][INDENT]<audio>[/INDENT][/INDENT]
[INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]<defaultplayer>dvdplayer</defaultplayer>[/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT]
[INDENT][INDENT]</audio>[/INDENT][/INDENT]

[INDENT]</advancedsettings>[/INDENT]

Enjoy the music again...

I just wanted to say that with that build the so-called WEB-DL 720p tvshows are played nice and smoothNod
I wish in time the rest of my choppy HD stuff with DTS (most of them encoded by the internal release groups of hdbits) will be played smooth too.
