Sorry,

Just read through that and not much of it makes any sense to me what so ever.

Its an Apple TV running 2.3.1
BXMC was uploaded to it today from the link in the download section, and then updated using AppleTV.

Let me know what you need to know to help me and where i can find it and ill try get it.

Sorry for being a pain but im new to all this and alot of it really isnt making much sense.
The link MaestroDD provided provides you with the details that you need to provide in order for us to help.
Hi,
Yeah thats what i read through. Some makes no sense and other parts i wouldnt have a clue where to find. Ill fill in what i can and post it up.
OSX Version. 10.5.6
Platform. AppleTV
Launcher version if AppleTV. 2.3.1
Install Method. Huh USB?
SVN Revision. Cant open XBMC
Detailed Instructions to Reproduce the Problem. Cant open XBMC, i get the apple come up, then half goes, a grey screen flashes up and then all i have is a black screen. Can hear the remote going through the menu but cant see anything. Ive only just installed it, it worked at first but i couldnt find any media and the screen stayed small even after i changed it to full screen, so i reset it and since then all i get is the black screen.
FULL Debug Log (Please use your favorite paste site! See below.) << NOT OPTIONAL! This on BXMC? I cant open it.

Hope this helps, cant see that there is anymore infomation there mind you.
You need the log! You should be able to find the log file.

how that? How did you install?
Is the log file on ATV? Or have i got to upload it?

I installed BXMC on my AppleTV the way it says on BXMC.org, http://code.google.com/p/atvusb-creator/

C'mon, search the forum about where to find the log and be more specific what you did.

Maybe searching in MaestroDDs last post for "log" would be a start.
I can see in the post where it says to find the logs. Is that on appletv? I cant find anything that mentions users or frontrow so i really have no idea where i should be looking.
And it is also called XBMC, not BXMC Smile

Did you try, if it is on the ATV? Hint: "ls" is a non-invasive command. You can barely do anything wrong with it Wink
