Hi guys !
I just upgraded AppleTV with Boxee and I do say that its quite impressive and is what AppleTV should have been front the start !

Now my Question is this, I keep doing the update option for Boxee from the AppleTV menu ... I see that it downloads then installs ... screen goes black and I wait till I have to press a button on my AppleTV remote .. witch then prompts a message saying that the update is finished.
I then run Boxee and login, but to my suprise I am not seeing the new interface of the October 20th with the new background.
I then go look in internet TV, and cant find Hulu, CBS, Comedy etc.

Am I doing something wrong ... I tried updating several times ....

Might be redundant...but did you upgrade to the latest Launcher first? Should be version .04

By your description it doesn't even seem to be updating to the Oct 20th release. I think it is version .3940 that is the most recent. Is that the version you see when you navigate to Boxee/XBMC Update?

Only suggestions.

In the same menu where you navigated to for update the last item under Update should be Launcher. Select that and pause a moment. Then it will scroll so you can see the version. If it says .2 update to it. Then go back to Update and it should say version .4 now. Update to that. Then Boxee should be .3940. You are probably now seeing .3933 or something like that...right?

If Launcher says .4 right away...just update to that.

After installing the updates I still see 3 pending updates in the Updates menu. Is that normal?

in the updates menu i see:

XBMC Atlantis 2 (which i already have)
Boxee .3940
Launcher .4

Ive tried updating Launcher first but it does nothing. All i hear is the AppleTV bleep when i click with the remote, it freezes for a second then the name starts scrolling again.

I have installed XBMC/Boxee manually on AppleTV 2.0.2 and did not use the patchstick found here: http://code.google.com/p/atvusb-creator/

Maybe you have to update the AppleTV software first.

also, it could be because you didn't use the patchsitck...

i would recommend updating you atv, and re-patching it using the patchsitck.

thanks for responding, but is there a way to install/update manually? i have eyetv set up and working perfectly and would hate to lose remote functionality because of an update/repatch.

would a possible fix be to download the updated boxee and/or XBMCLauncher frappliance and copy to /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Plugins/ overwriting the previous versions?

But I'm not sure why you want to do that. Launcher version can be checked in XBMC/BoxeeLauncher -> About.
