ajnicho,

Do you have content set to TV for your TV shows? Are you using the SVN build from the Passion repo or the last 'official' (v1.0.2) build from a zip file?

If it's working correctly from Confluence, but not from my skin, that's a bug that I need to stomp.

Wyrm (xTV-SAF)
If required a FULL debug log can now be submitted from the skin in settings->skin settings->support. Or follow instructions here if you can't access skin settings.

Confluence, Mediastream and XeeBo (love the simplicity & speed of this skin). For me, every other skin was causing a lag in the UI.

Quartz was causing lag ? Hardly possible.

@eTip,

absolutely no lag on ATV2 with xTV(SAF) skin. Maybe it's related to your configuration ?

I've been using ZStream for a while and really like it.

I take it they are not located in the xbmc repo because mine has three. Do you just ssh them to your apple tv one at a time. Is there a skin that will allow you to have your favorites on the home screen. Ex weather, videos, icefilms, TED, MUSIC, and so on. Basically moving thing out of addon and on to the ho e screen.

how to install this skin to AT2? It's a zip folder, not zip addon (easy to install)
zipfolder can use way : install from zip file?

So the answer is
ALL OF THEM

(lol)

Maybe a thread on "Which skins performance makes ATV2 choppy?" would have been better

BTW: I vote Transparency! for best skin. Yes it is choppy on ATV2 but not on ATV1. But it has so much eye candy, I over look the choppy-ness
