Whenever playing in xbmc you will notice horizontal lines during action scenes (the screen shot on the first post highlights the issue). This is caused by the video stream being interlaced. In plugin versions prior to v1.6.3 the dvd player in xbmc handled all processing of the video (i havent upgraded to v1.6.3 so I can not speak as to whether the issue still exists now that the stream is h264..), maybe some flag must be thrown to deinterlace the incoming video stream on the client pc? When I view the stream in vlc (on client pc) and turn on deinterlacing, the picture quality vastly improves.
I'll take a look. Deinterlacing doesnt look like it takes much cpu, so maybe I might just do it in vlc?
There is a way to change the setting in XBMC. have to find out if theres a way to do it in from the plugin...

While we're talking about apple tv 2, any thoughts on where getting to handling apple tv 2 commands is on the priority list? e.g. I'd like to be able to hit the menu button and have it function the same way as if I hit ESC on my xbmc client PC. The only way for me to stop a stream is to completely reset the apple tv 2 which is getting quite frustrating
If you have time now, we can do that now. I might need your help in getting some logs.
Give me a few minutes and I'll tell you what to look for.
EDIT: Ok can you spam the button a few times for each button (Remember the order that you pressed those buttons
) that you want implemented and then send me a copy of the log.
The buttons ids get outputted to the log: self.log('onAction ' + str(action))

It looks like menu is 6 on apple tv... but 6 is also page down on the pc?
EDIT2: Let me know how this works for you: http://www.mediafire.com/?wbl7b9i1d291mcz
