ATV2 - First time XBMC *No videos showing up
I successfully got my ATV2 jailbroken and installed XBMC. However, no matter if I try UPNP (with XBMC installed on my Windows 7 machine) or a Windows share, XBMC fails to see any videos in the directory. I'm working with a video in MKV format currently. What am I doing wrong? It happens either when I go to add a source or browse for files under Add Videos...

I'm no expert... But I think its an authentication or permission issue with your Samba share...

From the log you can see it trying to access the share and then failing to list the directory.

I would check the sharing permissions on the storage computer and make sure that the user has full read permissions. Next, I'd try and make it a share with no password, even if its only for troubleshooting purposes. And finally, I'd browse to the computer by IP just to rule out any windows URL parsing or master browser nonsense...

I use SMB shares with 5.1.1 and they work great!
