I haven’t had any problems like this at all. In the past week, when I go to start up XBMC - it just sticks on a black screen. You can here the selection clicker noise in the background as if you were moving the cursor/selection … you can here it try and back out when you hit menu…but absolutely no picture. Then I have to reboot. Sometimes it will make it to the the screen after rebooting and I can use it as normal (all of a sudden as well and maybe of note - the screen is stretched so that the time and the ticker at the bottom are cut off. I’ve reset my settings multiple time for the video in the main area of atv and also in xbmc (though if memory serves correct it will not let me select 1080p - it doesnt’ even show as an option where as in the main atv menu in the video config, it DOES give me the option and once that is done and then going back to xbmc it sometimes fixes the video issue…not often though).
