+1 on SMB idle issue. Don't have XBMC installed. I'm streaming from a FreeNAS box and having trouble getting my AFP share to work (different issue). Would be great to see this get fixed.

So, after much puzzling over debug logs, plenty of messing around with windows permission settings and much hair pulling and google-fu, i found the solution to what is becoming a fairly common problem - FIRECORE MEDIA PLAYER.

Suffice to say, i prioritize XBMC over FMP, so i haven't really explored trying to fix the media player as yet, but i'll detail how i got a stable, brilliantly working xbmc (FINALLY.)

Step 1: This is the most important one - UNINSTALL FIRECORE MEDIA PLAYER. CRASH PROBLEM SOLVED.

Step 2: Make sure apple updates are disabled (either via NitoTV or hosts file edit)

Step 3: Completely optional, but great for performance, disable all the pointless shit from xbmc (rss ticker, vertical blank sync in menus, overly flashy skins etc).

Step 4: Profit.

Didn't work for me! XBMC Will NOT Load... reboots ATV2

REMOVED EVERYTHING BUT XMBC... still reboots ARGH!!!!

same problem here (idle SMB reboot) with BOTH Media Player and XBMC. I don't even have to play a file. If I just let the system sit idle and then try to browse any SMB folder, it's reboot guaranteed.

No news on a fix or a work around?

Re: ATV2 Rebooting Issue

well, did 5 min. extra research and it looks like the workaround is simply to uninstall Media Player or XBMC:

Sorry guys, but for me it's Media Player that will have to go. Still hoping for a fix though.

I ended up solving the problem by getting a Synology NAS and sharing out via AFP. Sure, an expensive solution...but the NAS is great.
