XBMC & Boxee Menu are Gone!

I reset the AppleTV. Then installed the 3.0 software. Then did the atvFlash 4.0 software upgrade. Updated all of the plugins. All was fine. I saw the Boxee/XBMC menu. I updated the launcher, then the Boxee/XBMC menu was/is missing from the main screen.

I remember how in older versions updating the launcher would change the name in the main menu, but I don’t see it at all. Any idea what just happened?

Many thanks!

The Launcher version that appears in the Downloads menu is actually outdated and not compatible with the 3.0 AppleTV software.

Try the following.

  1. Navigate to the Maintenance > Manage Plugins menu.
  2. Highlight the XBMCLauncher item, and press the right arrow (>>) button to remove the plugin.
  3. Once removed, highlight the same entry, and press the play/pause button to reinstall it.

The AppleTV will restart, and XBMC/Boxee will again appear in the menu.

That fixed it!

Many thanks!
