How can I take screenshots in XBMC on ATV 2
#1
Can anyone please tell me how I can take screenshots in XBMC on my ATV 2?

I've tried everything I can think of - I've tried (command) S but it just crashes me out of XBMC

(I use an Apple wireless keyboard to control XBMC)

Thanks in advance

normally, it's the 'print screen' key but that does not exist on apple keyboard so you have to remap it (hint, keymaps) to another key.

Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.

you can map a remote apps key (e.x. xbmc commander) to send the screenshot builtin - if you've got another iDevice...

I have an iPhone. Is there some more specific instructions on setting this up?

I use XBMC Constellation...

I use xbmc remote.
You have to install the screenshot feature in nito I think.

But after that I just tap the screenshot icon and boom it's available. If only I could tweet this screenshot directly from xbmc. Sigh.

XBMC has its integrated screenshot feature. No need to install something special from nitotv here. You "only" need to call the builtin function "TakeScreenshot" somehow with your remote app:

Taking screenshots in XBMC is also mapped to ctrl-s.

most remote apps don't have a ctrl key though Wink

The iPhone/iPad app Constellation has the screenshot command built in, under "Commands"
