    I ran Seas0nPass and then installed XMBC (thus bypassing the need to buy aTV Flash) on my ATV 2. I finally set up the SMB folders but when I try to play ANY file type (avi, m4v, mkv, h264) I get the same error message: Playback Failed One or more items failed to play.

    Anyone know a final tweak to get XMBC playing files?

    i'm assuming you have your files on some sort of nas. Have you setup a specific userid for the appletv2 to log into your nas? if not you need to enable guest account access on the nas side to your content.
