Just finished updating Boxee/XBMC. It had been working OK, but after this update, my machine is essentially bricked. Neither remote I usually use (Apple remote or Logitech Harmony) has any effect. I can get in from my Mac via Cyberduck, but as far as functionality, the ATV has none whatsoever. Just the main menu screen. I noticed that XBMC and Boxee are the same menu item now rather than two separate ones, so I’m assuming the update is what bricked me. Anybody have any thoughts or help?
I had the same issue, I am not exactly sure what I did, but trying to repair the remote, and rebooting a few times got the trick done.
Rewind + Menu , 6 seconds unpair
Fastforward + Menu , 6 seconds repair
Try that a few times…
Then make sure aTV screen saver is off.
my ATV now has the same fate. It’s totally unresponsive one day. I tried menu + left and menu + right button and rebooting to no avail.
I can use menu + down button to force reboot but can’t seem to figure out what went wrong. Appreciate any help.
