@davilla, hehe, let me rephrase , " Whats been popular among users? Boxee or XMBC? "

I enjoyed my first day with both xmbc (not that much) and boxee ( many hours ). I have to say Boxee looks the winner but i wish it had skin function like XMBC has , Marcel Boxee's developer has said in his forum he will try to do that in next version .

Still , i wish XMBC worked full-screen on my tv (Bravia 720p res) . it works in windowed mode.

XBMC/Boxee -> depends on if you want a media center or a social media center. Both have good points depending on what you want to do.

I tend so spend most of my time under xbmc but then I'm also the xbmc dev that did the 10.4/AppleTV work ;)

xbmc -> settings -> resolution -> screen (change to the settings that says FullScreen) to change from windowed to fullscreen mode.

For XBMC help -> xbmc forums at http://xbmc.org/foru...isplay.php?f=56
For Boxee help ->http://forum.boxee.t...isplay.php?f=13

Ya davilla, i just saw you on xbmc forums too ;) Good work man , i really appreciate . and yes i quickly figured out the change to full-screen too after i posted. just didnt bother updating here.

I even loaded the AEON skin and its one AMAZING stuff. i am blown away.

but now. i suddenly see XBMC is not playing avi's properly. it kinda is stuttering now , as if appletv cant handle it.

When i switched to Boxee (which is alpha) , it played the SAME files totally smooth and fast FPS. i wonder how can i solve this. :(

make sure the software upscaler is not enabled. It takes too much cpu to run on the AppleTV.

I think settings -> video -> something

System / Video / Player / High Quality Upscaler << I stupidly turned it on and thats when problem started. i have disabled it now and all is back to normal , someone @ XBMC told me this . (krieg i guess).
