Cyanide & Happiness

Love this site. Not sure whether I agree completely with this given what’s happening right now. I feel that the music, movie and television companies need to get there act together. They charge too much for shit. Its a buyers market and I’m sure that 90% of downloaders would pay for decent content for a decent price.

ATV2 & XBMC – Totally Feeling The Love

I noticed that it had been 3 months since my last XBMC update. The main reason for this is because I have been happily using XBMC on ATV2 for the past months with absolutely no issues. I was very please with its performance on the whole, some things were slow(ish) but it worked for my needs.

I had a nightly build from June sometime and I just thought “if it ain’t broke …” well you know the rest. As a regular visitor of the XBMC forums I know that there had been continued development work, especially it seemed for the ATV2, so I thought I would take the plunge and get an update.

ATV2 & XBMC – One Week On

I have been making further tweaks and updates to the ATV2 version of XBMC to try and get the software more stable and usable. To be honest after the first couple of days I wasn’t really feeling the love XBMC – on ATV1 it was pretty stable and I had done a number of modifications to get it as close to best performance for my needs but ATV2 just wasn’t there.

So I got the latest semi-nightly build from the 15th May compared to the previous update from the 7th of May. Things are getting better all the time. What follows could be treated as guide how to update on the assumption that you have already jailbroken your ATV2 and have at least the official build of XBMC installed already.
