One suggestion-you might get less questions on audio setup if the instructions were modified to make it clear that the passthrough device also needs to be setup as custom for hdmi. Took me awhile to figure that out.
Is there a way to move from the xbmc linux environment back to the apple tv environment short of removing the usb stick and rebooting?
XBMC is hanging on the exit screen, any suggestions? If exiting doesn't take you back to appletv function then that would, of course, be moot.
Donation on the way.
There is no way of getting to the ATV side short of removing the usb stick and restarting. Perhaps there is some sort of multiple boot loader that you find with "hackintosh" pc's, but it's not clear this can be done without distributing Apple specific sw which is not acceptable. On a "hackintosh" you often see Chameleon booting Linux, OSX, windows, etc ...
Even if it could be done, how would you control the selection? The remote or whatever would have to gain control very quickly. On a Mac you can hold down the menu button and get a selection of bootable OS's. I doubt the AppleTV has that. Would be nice though as the ATV OSX side has some very nice features.
When I exit xbmc I seem to get to a Linux shell. You can ssh to the atv and issue a reboot command and remove the usb drive. Saves unplugging or switching on and off I suppose but timing is an issue
