AppleTV frozen on First Screen

I have asked about this before

My problem is that all I see is the opening menu for the AppleTV and can get no further.
The remotes will not activate any of the menu items so I get no further and am unable
to access any of the menu items beyond the initial screen. Hence I cannot restore, upgrade or do any maintenance on the set.
This occurred after I upgraded Boxee.
The AppleTv is on 2.2 and I have upgraded the ATV to the latest version
The set restarts when I unplug & replug it, but every time it stops at the screen headed Movies with the tv at the top
I have tried 4 different remotes and still nothing changes
It will not reset with menu and - buttons

Surely someone out there knows the secret to fix this problem!

Can you log into the AppleTV with Fugu and see if this file exists. Go into Library > LaunchAgents and see if it is there. If so then try what is suggest here:

http://forum.boxee.tv/showthread.php?t=722&highlight=remote&page=3

and go down to the bottom post #30 and see if that works. It is a conflict with Boxee and the AppleTV Remote software I think.

EDIT: Just realized I never put in the name of the file that needs to be removed or deleted: tv.boxee.helper.plist

Thanks madcran
I located the “tv.boxee.helper.plist” file in the library folder.
deleted it manually and then restarted the tv by removing the power cord.
Everything now works as it should

thank you so much for your help
