I am relatively new at all this and rewuire some assistance. I got ATV2 as a gift and have been blown away by it. I received it jailbroken (which I am glad cause I am not sure I could have done that myself), and it was loaded with XMBC and Icefilms installed.
I have tried to watch a few movies and tv shows, and while I get to each one relatively quickly, and with no errors, they are extremely choppy when they are being veiwed, both in audio and video. I have been endlessly trying to scour the internet looking for fixes, but nothing I have tried helps. PLEASE HELP or I might have to take the unit back as I dont want to be renting all kinds of movies from Apple.
Other pertinent info:
*I have Cable internet and my ISP says I average about 14Mbps. Looked into increasing that but nor sure it will solve this issue
*I have signed up for, and logged into Megaupload on the ATV and no improvement on quality
*I have downloaded torrents and converted them to iTunes and been able to watch them seamlessly on my ATV2, but that takes so much more time.
*I have rebooted my modem and my wireless router, as I read that dynamic IP can be an issue. No change
*I have viewed movies from Apple TV itself and quality was excellent.
*I am having no error messages about plugin failure, like I have seen posted.
*I have changed the video to standard defintion in iTunes instead of HD. No change
*I am a complete newbie in this field. When it comes to comptuer programming I am a bit lost. I have read posts about changing the default.fy file via SSH, but I admit I have no idea what that is or how I would do it. Not sure it would make a difference seeing as I am having no plugin error messages and I can see the movie, its just extremely choppy.
Any help available would be great.
