what's up dudes? i just jail broke my ATV2, installed XMBC? but now i have no idea on how to work this. not asking much here, don't need my hand held just need to be pointed in the right direction on a tutorial. i was overtaken on how much harder it is to work with this. its definitely not as easy as a jailbroken iPhone.

any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys.

what exactly are you having issues with? what do you want to do?

Once you installed XBMC, it will be on your menu, click it, go to settings, add your share drive and watch your Por**...I meant your movies.. ;)

sorry for not being clear in my first post. i don't know how to add plugins. i just don't really understand how to add anything. i added a tv add on but don't know how to add channels. basically i'm a total n00b right now. :(

there is no way to list all the plug-ins and addon in here. You need to search in google for guides and Youtube for videos..there are tons and tons of those that will give you step by step on exactly what you want. If you get into a specific issue installing any addon, come back here and ask an specific question and we can help you.

here are some guides:

Here's how to add Hulu pluing to XBMC once you have it installed

Best place to go is the xbmc forums. Theres lots of help guides. Theres also a section at the atv flash forum if you don't want to sift through xbmc's own dedicated forum.
