View Full Version : ATV Beta Issues - (Don't clog up FAQ thread)

January 18th, 2010, 09:00 AM
Thought I would create a topic for issues with the (unofficial) Beta on ATV thread. Feel free to post and I will edit, or mods can edit at free will to add issues and possible fixes while we wait for an official release.

Q. My Library wipes/disappears after a random amount of time.

A. No resolution yet.

Q. My media doesn't appear to be scraping.

A. Try going into Settings - Media and removing Video local sources. There is a bug where it'll go into an infinite scrape loop trying to find data. After this, restart via exiting boxee/restarting your ATV or 'sudo reboot' if SSH is your thing.

Q. My remote doesn't appear to be working!

A. This appears to be an isolated problem. Most users report much more responsive remote as well as user interface. Try re-pairing your Apple remote in the ATV Settings - General - Remote page.

Q. My apps disappear at random times!

No fix as of yet apart from cycling power.

I had the remote issue when I first installed the beta. Something in the installation process unpaired my remote from the ATV. Going into the ATV settings and pairing the remote again fixed the issue.

Issues I'm seeing:

My Apps disappears after an interval and doesn't return, although I can usually start apps that are on my shortcuts. These will sometimes disappear too.

When this happens, the beta freezes on exit. The only way to get the aTV to respond is to unplug the power.

the new beta is FAST and awesome... but sometimes mine can get very sluggish. not all the time... there are one of two scenarios.

1. I first launch boxee and it'll be speedy and normal. after some time it starts getting sluggish.

2. It's sluggish right from the get-go - hit a button and wait 10-20 seconds for it to respond.

sometimes I think even the regular AppleTV software is sluggish too so I wonder if its possible that the whole ATV machine got slow somehow.

Do you think the "infinite scrape loop trying to find data" problem could be causing it?

Freeze after screensaver
I had to turn off it's screensaver (even dimming). the screen would get frozen, even though i could hear boxee reacting to remote buttons, there was no video.
