two niggles post-hack
I took the plunge a few weeks back and the hack went well, however, I have two smallish issues ....
1) I run the atv blind mostly ( ie Telly off, sound through AV system) ... since hacking I've had a problem using apple's Remote app on the iPhone. I can navigate the menus as normal select artist/playlist etc but at the moment I trigger a song (any) the atv goes through a 'restart finder' type process. Ie there's no song and I loose connection in the remote app, this connects back up 20 seconds later but problem just repeats itself. Annoying as my main use will still be music, preferably with tv off and using the iPhone app !
My only solution is to manually move the focus on startup away from the 'Software Menu' which sits way left with scripts and stuff in it. If I take the focus to the music menu e.g then the remote app starts to behave as before. I wonder if there is something wrong that can be fixed or worked around with a script perhaps? Any help appreciated.
Fwiw I have xbmc/boxee/nito/files and not much else, fairly plain hack!
2) may indicate why I have problem 1) .... Maybe not, ...
The startup apple video with the swoosh and video mosaic wall no longer pipes out any sound although it is correctly telling my amp to go dts, I've no issues with sound after boot, just missing this telltale launch sound (handy when you don't use the tv) any pointers to what I might look at for this one. I wonder if the sound settings for the core apple stuff and the hack extensions are clashing and maybe I ought to follow some order to configure.
Lastly, I'd gladly learn where others find their atv hack guidance outside this forum, my googling on these issues didn't prove fruitful
Thanks in advance if anyone has any ideas or pointers or even solutions
Try using software menu to reorganize the order each item appears in.
Make sure you are running the very latest software menu
Or use overflow and put software menu under overflow.
I run this setup - often headless with remote.app on two iPhones.
Run I 3.0.2 with latest software menu moved off main menu with overflow. My leftmost menu item is xbmc launcher and I don't get finder restarts anymore. Had lots of problems with previous version of software menu and os 2.4

Tusen takk - I will investigate these options, always encouraging to learn that you are not alone. Cheers
Aha, I now know what frap mover is for, I had deselected it from software menu, that did the trick. Many thanks. I have had less joy with the startup sound, I can get the sound if I disable digital, but that disables all digital ! For most usage that is ok by me, but if there are any tricks to get the digital side working reliably I'd love to hear. I've noticed at least 4 or 5 places to set sound settings now, they are not always in sync, however even with the digital settings all on the dts signal is detected but silent ( I have been used to this being okay before hack) when sound set to analog the startup sound returns, but at a price. Anyway, I'm delighted that the remote app is working now that I've moved Music to the first position. Thanks
