I also am having an issue with XMBC.
MAcbook OS 10.6.7
I used SeasOnpass to JB, then installed aTV Flash Beta 5.
After the aTV reloaded, i ssh’ed into aTV via
$ ssh root@<your ATV2 IP address>
root@<your ATV2 IP address>'s password: ''enter your password here, it should be "alpine" if you haven't changed it''
$ apt-get install wget
$ wget -O- http://apt.awkwardtv.org/awkwardtv.pub | apt-key add -
$ echo "deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org/ stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list
$ echo "deb http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2 ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
after which XMBC appeared in my menu. I then clicked on XMBC>video>add source>browse>windows network(smb)
